all i have to offer is my own confusion

Home | FaceBook |Charities I Support | This is Me | This is My Life | Archive

I'm Kate. Born & raised in the ever lovely New York. I'm not going to bore you with a list of my favorite things; I mean I think my blog pretty much speaks for itself in terms of what I like/don't like. Though I do have an unhealthy obsession with Puggles & Palm trees. Oh! And I'm sarcastic. Pretty Prettty Pretty sarcastic ;)

I'm a firm believer in karma and treating people the way you want to be treated. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. And sometimes I fuck up. Royally. I don't have the answers to all life's questions but what I do know, is that I do things genuinely and whole heartedly. My intentions are pure.

I'm just trying to live life the best way I can. Don't ever let someone tell you it's too late to make a POSITIVE change in your life. It's not. And you can. I have. I'm a constant work-in-progess and I wouldn't have it any other way.

OM MANI PADME HUM

Life is a struggle, and ultimate victory is only decided in its final chapter. That is why it’s important not to become intoxicated by one’s success or become disheartened in defeat.

I finally feel like I’ve reached all my weight loss goals over the past 2 years. It’s been a trip & I’ve had numerous obstacles & set backs.. But one thing I never did was give up or quit. And for that, I’m extremely proud of myself.

Sometimes a song just hits home..

@GoRadio - Hear Me Out 

"Watching as the leaves fall down 
The colors where we use to run and play
Another year’s flown by I feel
It seems to be too soon the seasons change”

My journey thus far.

In January of 2011 I made the BEST decision of my life; I invested in a personal trainer. I was depressed, out of shape, and my diet was shitty to say the least.

Before I knew it I began to see my body changing. I was heading in the right direction of getting my old/high school body back & I couldn’t have been more thrilled.

My trainer turned in to so much more than just a trainer. We formed a friendship. Something I will forever cherish.

It’s now been approximately a year and a half since I started this journey. I’ve had set backs (oh hey remember when I broke my foot back in February!? Yeah that was cool. Not.) I’ve had plateaus. I’ve gone off track. But the ONE thing I haven’t done is throw the towel in. I have not and I will not give up on my goals. I refuse.

The picture I posted isn’t my before and after. The one on the left is from four weeks ago. It just goes to show how much MY body changes in as little as 28 days! This is what keeps me going. 

And I won’t stop until I feel as though I am the best possible version of myself that I can be.

Daily ENCOURAGEMENT.

Life isn’t always smooth. If it were, we would never grow and develop as human beings. If we succeed, we are envied; if we fail, we are ridiculed and attacked. Sadly, this is how people are. Unexpected grief and suffering may lie ahead of you. But it is precisely when you encounter such trying times that you must not be defeated. Never give up. Never retreat.

I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

I’m in a car underwater with time to kill, thinking back I forgot to tell you this. I didn’t care that you left and abandoned me, what hurts more is I would still die for you.

In the past 4 months my way of thinking has changed completely. While I’ve never been a spiteful person, I’ve sometimes had ill feelings towards people. I’ve said mean things. I’ve acted in ways that I was NEVER raised to act. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve done stupid things drunk. I’ve done stupid things sober.

And while I can’t quite make sense of the last 4 months of my 26 years on earth, I feel as though I’m changing. Almost as if I’m changing with the seasons. (sup global warming?)

I know I’ve hurt people and people have hurt me. And instead of being jaded by it, like in the past, I’m letting it go. I’m only allowing positive people & positive thoughts into my life from now on. And fuck. It’s hard. But I’ve finally realized my self worth. Something I never had. I realized that I DO deserve happiness. And love.

And one day I’ll be able to share that happiness and love with an amazing man.

Until then I just gotta keep on keeping on.

om mani padme hum.
