I was always the chubby kid growing up. My brother and sister were both thin, popular and athletic, where I was chubby, nerdy and clumbsy. This photo is my basketball photo for the YMCA basketball team I was on, and it’s actually the best picture I ever took between the ages of 10-14! Middle school almost killed me!! I can’t even walk into my nieces school without feeling like I’m going to puke! Thank God I had a growth spurt my freshman year in highschool and got contacts. I’m happy I grew up awkward though, even though I don’t get made fun of for how I look now, I’ll never forget the way it made me feel when I did and I never want to make anyone feel bad about being overweight or awkward.

Too cute, as a teen and an adult! Love this project!

Just because it’s not quite spring yet, doesn’t mean we can’t drink like it is — so we’re making whiskey sours. Cheers! #terrainsignsofspring

Whiskey sour would be perfect in this sunshine! #recipe #drinks #happyhour

From now on I hope always to educate myself as best I can. But lacking this, in future I will relaxedly turn back to my secret mind to see what it has observed when I thought I was sitting this one out. We never sit anything out. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.

Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing (1990)

Chase away those demons that tell you that you can’t change: it’s too hard, it’s not in your DNA, it requires excessive effort. Such a mindset will sabotage your efforts before you even begin. Though it’s true that “you are who you are” and that your personality structure “is what it is,” it’s not true that you can’t modify, alter, or tweak many aspects of how you behave.

Can People Really Change? | World of Psychology

Yes, you can change many things for the better.  You may not be able to make things perfect, but who is perfect, anyway?  But you can change so that your life becomes more productive, healthier, and authentic. 

If this type of change is for you, contact me. My name is Sheila Brown, and I am a mental health counselor in NYC.  I can be reached at 917-525-2205x6, or via email at Sheila@mytherapist.info.

Change for the better!
