I just dont know anymore….. It really feels like I dont know a damn thing. At the end of the day it all boils down to that one question I ask myself “who am I?” I keep erasing what I write, but why? Im afraid to admit the truth to myself, that its all wrong, everything…. my strengths have become my weaknesses. Trying so hard to not be weak has lead me to become to pround. Am I too proud? or is it the fact that I know I cant take back anything Ive done….
Ive found this to be very true
Without a doubt I do not have a perfect life. Im 20 years old, divorced, have a one year old very beautiful child (which right now seems to be the only perfect part of my life and she will always be the perfection of my life) and I can hardly get by (my gas almost got shut off this month). Some how or some way I needed an outlet, and that is when I found Oprah’s book that I had bought when I was In highschool. Started reading the book a few days ago and wanted to share parts of the book that not only I could relate to, but others as well. So far I am currently In the section of Your mind/Your body. If I could sum up the first few pages In s few word it would be The Biggest Problem In America, obesity, which I can understand. Im not tipping the scales when It comes to my weight but I know Im not on the healthy side. Ever since my split this year I have noticed that I have packed on a few pounds (Probably due to stress). The few pounds have never really been a problem for me because ive learned to work with what you have however I really do want to make a change In my life.
First page was titled Why Is It So Damn Hard To Change? Yes! that has been my question for the longest time. I have noticed it is hard to change. We all say at some point that Im going to give up those shitty foods that I eat and start eating healthy again. Next day we are found in the Mcdonalds drive through ordering a number three. The problem is we are actually addicted to some of these foods because they trigger the same chemicals sent to the brain that are also sent when people do things such as hard drugs, nicotine, alcohol, shopping or even sex. That explains alot!
Think Like a Thin Person. Easy to be said than done! I read that title and right away I thought ‘bullshit!’ But as I read on I understood what they were talking about. Thin people eat very little and much more healthy than the average american. Like today, I went through the Mcdonalds drive thru. I could have Instead replaced that hunger with water or carrots. Just simple changes like these make all the difference. The fist step to anything is having an understanding
Got up this morning and grabbed my notebook as soon as I could cause I knew I would forget this dream If I didnt write it down. By now I can only remember fragments so It was a good thing I wrote it down. I have been really starting to pay attention to my dream when I can. Not really sure why I started, maybe because no one else can really tell me something this detailed about my life. I really do feel like a complicated individual sometimes so that could be why I started… to possibly try and understand myself better and to tell myself things I need to hear. This morning I spent depicting my dream so bear with me hear because I was able to find lots of symbolism

Its nice to hear things that are true and that no one else can really tell me but the puzzling part is when you can do nothing about it. Well guess ill see what the future holds for me
There has only ever been one other time in my life that I have slept walked. I was around twelve or thirteen and was living at my sisters fathers house because my mother was arrested. He saw me walking around and told me “brianna go back to bed” and I did exactly that. My most recent event was just a few days ago that I had slept walked again. My boyfriend had told me that I got up out of bed and started looking through the sheets. When he asked me “what are you doing babe?” I replied “I got pictures from overseas”. Silly I know but this event also grabbed my attention because I have been having sleeping problems for a few weeks now. I did some reserch and this is what I came up with

Funny things arnt they? some people have gore styled dreams, and others dream peacfully about their desires. whatever type of dream you having its trying to tell you something you wont hear. I believe a dream is a subconscious thought that we ignore trying to come out.
