Sharing my story and facing my fears :)

  Last night was a big night for me!

  I shared my personal journey of weight loss and healthy happiness at Catch A Healthy Habit Cafe. There was a wonderful crowd and I think the evening was a success for everyone involved.
I conquered a huge fear of public speaking and that in itself is such a blessing. I found a confidence I had misplaced long ago. I think because I am passionate about the healing powers of nutritious, natural foods, it was much easier than I ever expected. It was a wonderful experience, one I will never  forget. I realized that I do have a story inside that is just bursting to get out and I found a voice inside that I didn't think I had.
 My wonderful son, sisters and brother in law were there, believing in me much more than I believed in myself. That means more to me than words can say. The love of my family and friends gave me the courage to step far outside my comfort zone and take a risk. I'm so glad that it did! 

 I spent the past several weeks focusing all my energies on this event and haven't spent much time here on my blog. I'm ready to jump back in with lots to share and renewed sense of excitement! For any of the great people I met last night that want to take a look at menus, thoughts and tips from the beginning of my journey, I suggest starting back in the beginning of my blog and work your way through. In many ways I think the first steps were my most important ~ hopefully it will be helpful :)

Please feel free to email me, find me on facebook or comment here ~ post your story, share a recipe or whatever you'd like! That's what this blog is all about.... sharing!
Be back soon with some delicious ~ nutritious & simple new recipes and more!

Enjoy the sunshine & have a wonderful weekend :)
