Life is a work in progress. When I think about who I was 10 years ago, that girl was barely distinguishable from who stands before me today. Ever read an old journal and feel astonished by who you were? I feel the same way.

I was lost, confused and did not know who I was or who I wanted to be. I was a slave to my emotions and my experiences. I let others create the road in front of me and define my worth. While I have grown a lot since then, I am still a work in progress.

I don’t know where you are on your journey, but if you are struggling to get to where you want to be in your life, I hope a few of these top posts this week will bring you solace.

It takes a lot to get to your goals. You may be dealing with depression, body image issues or struggling with your own self-identity. If so, congratulations to you for keeping on the difficult path. It’s hard work, but you will get there.

Your Family’s Impact On Your Relationship With Food & Your Body

(Weightless) – Although they don’t mean to, sometimes parents can have a negative impact on how we think about food and our bodies. You might read it and see your family in it or you may see yourself.

Charlie Sheen and the Allure of Manic Flight
