Joining in with Mrs P's new theme over at http://fairybreadmusings.blogspot.com/ of favourite things friday my favourite thing this week is ----- ME!!!
Now no, I'm not being a bigheaded freak, but I started the next term of my counselling course this week. Its a long journey of 4 years until we qualify as it is only part time but I know the biggest thing I have to deal with is giving myself unconditional positive regard. If I can't be kind and caring to myself and show myself love, how can I be that way to others!
So from my early beginnings as a London urchin in the 70s
through to the new romantic 80s as a teenager
and my very brief fit phase - I walked the whole way down this mountain at 19 (please note down, not up thats what cable cars are for)
and my even briefer glam phase in my early 20s (in the most expensive item of clothing I've ever had - £250 in the early 90s, worn once and still in my wardrobe)
to a homeowner in my later 20s
and becoming a freelance consultant in my 30s
I'm now fat, forty and fabulous starting a whole new chapter of my life!
