Before and After and After again

Everyone is on a path in life and I believe that everything we have been through and every aspect of our past, whether good or bad helps make us who we are today. There are many lessons that I have learned about my self over the past 10 years! Lessons about my emotions, dreams, self-control, faith, desires, fears, shortcomings, motivators, strengths and beliefs.

Overall I have gotten to know WHO I AM and although there have been a lot of painful seasons along the way and times I wish I could rewind, taking back or do something right, I couldn't do things different or I wouldn't be who I am. And this person that I am now, is exactly the person that I am supposed to be and exactly the person that God has to do the job I was chosen for.

Here are a few pics of who I was and who I am. It's a little bit of a before and after, a chronicle of going from a running, happy kid who loves God to an unhappy, over weight drinking, smoking, party girl (then a FIT unhappy party girl) and back again to my true center of faith and fitness. So press play on the song and slideshow and enjoy!!

Best lyrics from the Relient K song:

Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.
See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.
Stop right there. Well I never should have said
That it's the very moment that
I wish that I could take back.

I'm sorry for the person I became.
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
'cause who I am hates who I've been.
Who I am hates who I've been.
