I'm Still Here...
I was listening recently to my favorite local radio station, Birmingham Mountain Radio and a new Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings song came on titled "I'm Still Here." I love Sharon and her band and I had not heard the song before, but it resonated to me.
Yes, Yes. I know what you're probably thinking. But no, this is not a "Whole 30" blog, but yes, after some research on the subject I have decided to change my lifestyle to be more active and healthy.
As long as I can remember, I was always skinny, then after my developed chronic lung problems growing up, I still stayed skinny and it was always a struggle to put on weight and to find clothes not in the teen girls department of all size zeros. I ate what I wanted to, was somewhat active but didn't need to make time for it. I just thought this was how I was going to be and even though I did crave eating healthy foods, I just believed that it wouldn't be something to worry about.
Then I turned the big 3-0.
I'm back, y'all.
When I first started blogging back in 2010, I honestly just wanted a space to share food recipes that I loved making and my life stories, the good ones and also the bad ones.
Some were very personal through the years, but here I am six years later, after taking a hiatus, within those years trying to find myself still. But I'm back because even though things in life sometimes don't always happen like you think they will, it's still always a good idea to write through them, share them, because you never know if someone out there is going through the same thing.
