and Happy Halloween to all!!!!!

IMG 5698 thumb   Happy 1st Birthday Oh She Glows!!!

It is hard to believe it has been 1 YEAR since I started Oh She Glows! A year really CAN change a lot.

Missed Part 1, Part 2, Part 3Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, or Part 7??

If anyone is looking for a last minute Halloween costume- you could go as an Operation Beautiful note! ;)

Here is the one I wrote today on my big ‘post-it’…

IMG 5720 thumb   Happy 1st Birthday Oh She Glows!!! 

It’s going by the door!

One thing blogging has taught me over the past year is that being true to myself has dramatically changed my life for the better.

I realized that the ‘real me’ WAS good enough! In fact, the real me is what everyone wanted to see all along, but I didn’t know that.

I always thought I had to hide who I really was- a goofy, silly, shy, yet fun-loving and IMPERFECT woman.

Once I took my wall down and was true to myself I realized that good things started happening to me.

I was happier, less anxious, motivated, and peaceful. I fell asleep quickly at night. I woke up eager. I dreamed big.

People around me seemed to like me more, probably because I wasn’t walking around stressed out and counting every calorie in my head over and over again or thinking about how unhappy I was.

Oh She Glows got me through one of the most difficult times of my life. It is what made me realize that I could do something that I loved to do. I could touch people with my words. I could help other women overcome their disordered eating, obsession, and negative self-image. I could be silly, and weird, and goofy, and basically do whatever I wanted on this blog. I could take a picture of a beautiful flower and post it. I could vent about a problem or talk about ideas, goals, motivations, aspirations, and visions…

Oh She Glows made me finally feel in control of my happiness.

I started to think outside the box. I dreamed big. I knew that I deserved to be happy.

Things inside me started to click.

I had spent the better part of my graduate program miserable and now I was miserable in my career. What would have to change until I decided enough was enough? When would my life be a HAPPY life?

Well, something happened along my blogging journey. I realized that nothing was ever going to change unless I did something about it.

Opportunities don’t just happen to people, you have to MAKE them happen.

When I realized this, my whole perspective changed.

I knew that unless I took action, I would be miserable my whole life. I pictured myself in the same job until I was 50. Is that what I wanted, to be a passive recipient of what life gives me?

Absolutely not!

None of us know what cards will be dealt to us. I don’t know if I will be around next week, next year or for my 50th birthday. It would surely suck to piss away these amazing years being unhappy. Where is the fun in being miserable all the time? It was the same sort of realization I had when I decided to give up obsessing over my weight, exercise, and food. Was it working for me? Hardly- I was stressed out and unhappy day in and day out. I was hungry all the time. Eric broke up with me for a few months in 2003 because things got so bad. Being miserable did NOT work for me with my eating disorder or in my career.

Each positive step that I took, I felt like I jumped a mile. Positive things breed more positive things. As soon as I broke the cycle of negativity in my life, I was a changed women.

It just takes a series of small actions and then one BIG action (think- KABOOM!) to finally break away from the chains that you have in your life.

My KABOOM! moment was when I decided to tell my boss, in a heated moment, that I was done. I felt like a bomb went off inside me. Suddenly everything was changed.

I thank my lucky stars that I started Oh She Glows exactly 1 year ago. I was a very unhappy and guarded person. I felt like a drone. Some days I didn’t feel anything except nothingness and a void. This blog didn’t just turn a light bulb on in my head, it turned on an entire football stadium of lights. Everything started to click. I had these amazing women who read my blog and believed in me. After a while I started to believe in me too.

After a bad day I logged on and just wrote. Sometimes light topics like fashion or make-up and sometimes more serious ones. It was sort of like cheap therapy for me. I was on the couch indeed typing my heart out.

This isn’t just a healthy living blog to me.

It represents HOPE for change.

Hope that each and every one of us can find our own personal definition of happiness. To be true to ourselves, and to believe in our own authentic power.

I still feel like I have a lot to learn, but the only difference now is that I feel like I am slowly on my way, and better yet, I am excited about it. I am no longer stalled or going in reverse like I was for so long.

I truly think that all of us have the same basic goals…to feel loved and to feel like we have a purpose on the earth. To feel like our true self is in harmony with what we do day in and day out.

The power within all of us is so great. If we only touched on it briefly each day we could all do amazing things.

Sarah K. Robb November 1, 2009

One year from now I hope to be alive and well, fully functioning and DEFINITELY running! I am deploying to Afghanistan in mid to late March of 2010, I volunteered to go and I feel it’s part of my life’s calling. Running provides me reason, despite the possibilities that I may not run everyday I hope to get in a decent amount of time during my off hours. Throughout much of my young adult life I was never sure of my future, once I enlisted in 2007 after I was so close to obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree (only one year shy), I took the great leap into becoming part of what I deem the greatest organization there is- the United States Army. While we may never know for sure what our future holds, I know that what is in store for me holds great things. I cannot and will not settle for less, and I feel confident about that. What I really want in the next year is for my friends and family to learn how important self satisfaction is. If you, yourself, are not happy make it so that your life will provide you with the tools to make that happen. Glowing friends, the world is your oyster!

Kelly November 1, 2009

Happy Birthday! I have to say that your blog is one of the most inspirational I read on a daily basis. You have made me think about how I can get more out of my life. I’m currently in a dead end nowhere job. I literally sit there all day just hoping for work to do. Thankfully I’m paid well to do this. So your blog has made me think that other things are possible and I need to stop making excuses and make some positive changes.

So in the next year I want to be a certified personal trainer. Even though this field is now chuck full of people doing this I feel I can still make a difference and find my special place. I will be taking a CPR class and the ACE PT certification. Unfortunately, I still need to keep the dead end nowhere job for the money but I won’t let it hold me back any longer. Once certified I need to find some place to get some experience. That is what I need to devote some time to over the next few months.

So thank you for helping me to step outside my comfort zone and make some positive things happen in my life. I’ve realized that I can make some changes to make myself happy instead of sitting here waiting for someone to hand it to me.

I have been a silent reader of your blog for some time, and I have to say that the things you say, you complete happiness and zest for life has inspired me to change myself. I knew that I couldn’t live the way I was forever, and I deeply longed to be happy ad healthy again but I wasn’t able to face my real problems and actually make an effort to change. I have suffered from severe bulimia for over seven years. The damage I have caused my body is not something I like to face but anytime I feel like purging or eating too much I just picture myself unhappy and trapped in this misery.
Therefore, Angela, I thank you. Thank you for represeting yourself so honestly and truly, and inspiring me make this much needed a change.
A year from now, I plan to either be pregnant or to have had a baby!(I’m newlywed) and I consider myself so fortunate to have been able to reverse the damage I caused my body by truly eating and living a healthy lifestyle. You inspired me, so thank you :)

One year from now I hope to be more centered and relaxed, confident and content. I have the goal of integrating Yoga into my exercise routine, which already includes running, pilates and weight-training. I hope to come up with new Green Monster combinations featuring nutritious (and delicious) ingredients. I hope to spend more time with the people I love. I hope to enjoy LIFE more!

Angela November 1, 2009

A year from now I see myself happy-planning my wedding with the help of my mom. 2009 has been a very tragic year. My mom was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in July. After the diagnoses I was very angry and felt lost for a while. Our wedding plans were put on hold, I cannot imagine planning my wedding without my mom- it was out of the question!
Also, It is my turn to take care of her. She has always been there for me she is truly one of a kind. This has been the hardest year of my life but we have all learned from the journey. Health has definitely taken a front seat in my life. There are so many things in life that we can’t control but health is something that is put in our hands each and every day and what we eat, put on our bodies and how we live all help determine the health of our bodies and minds.

I too am getting ready to have that chat with the boss. It is time for the career change. I work in travel now and one year from now I WILL BE a certified personal trainer and nutritionist… with my own blog, and probably starting to pack to move from san diego to austin for a vegetarian culinary program…all alone…because I know now big rewards require big risk.

Cheryl November 2, 2009

In one year from today I hope to have found more satisfaction and happiness within myself. Right now I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful husband so there is no change needed there, although perhaps a fourth child will be added?? Anyway, it is all within myself that I need to find change. I would love to accept myself as I am and be happy with myself. So that is what my goal is for the next year. To be healthier by running more and going to the gym more. To treat my body as it should be treated with healthy food and water. And to treat my mind better as well, let go of the negative things and realize what a wonderful life I do have already!
Happy Birthday Oh She Glows! I have never commented before but was happy to do so today!

Jenna November 2, 2009

I’d like to have some of my diseases be in remission, so I don’t have to take as many medications. I would like to have run another half marathon, and improve my time. I hope to be happy whether or not I am in my current relationship or not, and I hope to be living with my best friend as I currently am. I have come so far in the past year and hope to keep moving forward!

And since it will be Halloween 2010, I hope I have a very fun but safe time, just like this year!

I hope that after 11 years of post high school education including a PhD and a post doc to have a job that I love and be living in San francisco with my boyfriend of 7 years rather than 3000 miles away and in a long term relationship where I only see him 4 times a year! Oh and is it wrong for me to hope that I am finally engaged?! ;)

Rachel A October 31, 2009

In one year, I hope to be writing a book and either have a publisher or be in the process of finding one. My goal is to stay at my current job for the time being but not for more than two more years. I would love to take yoga teacher training. Due to my current job, I have missed out on two programs that started this fall, but I am hopeful I will be able to complete training next year. Ideally, I would like to open my own studio; this is farther out than one year…
I’m a beginner runner, so in a year, I hope I can run a 5k without stopping!

Dani @ WRW October 31, 2009

Happy Birthday! Congratulations on your success. =)

In a year from now, I hope to be around 200 pounds (was 400 … I’m now 280ish) and focusing more on my fitness goals. I should have a 5K under my belt by then (one planned for next fall!)

Otherwise, I see myself in my new house (should be closing on it soon!) and settling into life there, growing emotionally and spiritually, thankful for the opportunities God puts in my family’s path.

Right now, I’m mobile. I’m healthy. I’m happy. I’m truly LIVING instead of just existing. And next year? I just want so much more of that for me and my family!

Havie October 31, 2009

One year from now- I want to let go of the negative self-talk that has been plaguing my brain the last few months, run for fun not to make myself crazy, and hold my baby nephew as he nears his first birthday!

Inspirational post.

I hate to dream about the future like this, because truly I just hope to be happy to go wherever God leads me.

From my perspective right now, though, it’d be great to be at my current job as long as I’m constantly learning, growing and taking advantage of opportunities. I hope to be able to continue running races. Most of all I want my marriage and faith to continue to grow stronger!

K October 31, 2009

Wow, congrats on your first year! It really has been quite amazing and I am so happy I get to follow your progress.
As for me, I am not entirely sure where I want to go with my life but I do hope I have found a path I feel good about and am on my way. Finally finding a school program (nutrition?) and going for it, getting a job in a ballet company, starting my own business… I guess all I know is that I want to be happy with my choice.

Kayzilla October 31, 2009

In one year? I envision a happy and healthy Kayzilla. I can see myself with a part-time job, college, friends, and a boyfriend. The main thing is though, I envision myself LIVING! I can see myself being eating disorder free, and not being “in recovery” only “engaging in LIFE” the way I deserve to be. I can see myself eating healthy sustainable foods because I like how it feels and I do it out of love for my body. I can see myself sneaking in a chocolate or two just for the kicks and not feeling an itch of guilt. I’ve finally found a way to be aware of the impermanence of my negative thoughts and let myself feel and assess the situation as needed.

And you know, totally laughing and smiling at all the silly emotions and things I take too seriously along the way. I can see myself striving for a better live and looking for ways to help myself so I can help others. I can see myself being a happy teen. There will be bumps, tears, grrs, and EGAD!s along the way, but I can see myself being a tough cookie and conquering it all.. without the ED self-punishment.

That’s why all the actions I do today are worth being good ones. If not today.. then when, yanno?

Angela, you’ve done an amazing job getting to where you are today. It’s so good to see someone who’s managed to find happiness because it gives hope for the rest of us. I hope to maybe inspire someone else one day the way you’ve inspired me with your blog. Happy OSG birfday! :) This moment needs something.. hrmm…

If I could, I’d give you a high five. And a penguin. Penguins are cool and totally relevant. :D But can you get Eric to high five you for me? Thank you!

Keep on bloggin’!

My biggest problem right now is not being sure of what I want to do as far as a career goes. It’s not only annoying, but at times leaves me feeling like I’m completely worthless. On October 31, 2010 I want to have achieved a direction in my life concerning work and making a living. :)

Congrats on the 1 year mark! I love the blog and I’m so glad you started it!

Fallon October 31, 2009

1 year goes by quick huh? Well congrats! You deserve it.

In one year I would like to be with my true love. He been in Iraq for almost 6 months now and still have 6 more to go. It always been a long distance relationship but I’m going to make it work because it is obvious we are both crazy in love with each other. Just deployments and being long distance is what keeps up apart but our love just grows stronger each day. I can’t wait to just be with him. As for myself I will be in a much better place being with him and knowing he is home and safe with take that added stress off of me and I can just enjoy his company. This past year has been stressful and lonely because he has been gone, but once I get him him that will all disappear and I will be 100 times better. I’m strong and I’ve already gotten through 6 months, I know I will get through the next 6. By staying focus, eating healthy, and working out I will just become stronger. I have to make sure I’m healthy and well in order to start strong!

You are so inspiring! I found your website through a friend about 2 months ago and I’m so glad I did. Each day I read your posts I feel more aware of my own feelings and dreams and I’m getting closer to being brave enough to take action to make my dreams my reality. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself. You are an incredible person.

At this time next year I see myself at a much healthier weight and fitness level. I see myself participating in my first 5K and preparing for more. I see myself with established patterns and habits that help keep me organized and in control of my home and my business. I see myself still reading Oh She Glows each day and still feeling motivated and inspired to grow and develop into the amazing person I know I can be.

Thank you for a great inspiring post.

No more excuses…no more blaming others….
just me, exsisting and living for myself, my long -term self.
creating habits and patterns of health for a lifetime!
pursuing and engaged in a new sport I’ve never tried.
Not hiding in the shadows but embracing the silly side of myself, especially if I’m afraid to!
No longer apologizing for being a little shy, a little goofy and maybe a little lazy (gasp!) on my days off.
In my first year of grad school, loving every minute of it!!

It’s posts like this that keep reminding me why I really need to change my job situation and stop waiting around to figure it out. What I’m realizing is that I might never figure it out but I have to try new things before I can know for sure.

In one year I hope to have a new job, be in the final stages of preparation for our move to Spain, hopefully be starting my sommelier diploma program, and enjoying life. I will have my eyes set on my ultimate fitness goal – Ironman 2011.

For the past year and a half, my husband and I have been waiting for him to find a new job. In the coming year I need to take the initiative to find a job in the one of the cities we want to live in, instead of waiting for the economy in his field to look up.

By this time next year, I hope I can be happy with what I am/have instead of always comparing myself to others.

Congratulations on your first anniversary!

I have very simple hopes for the year ahead. I wish for the continued happiness and health of my family. I also want to find a new profession that will bring me the sense of fulfillment and peace that you seem to have found in your new career.

Happy anniversary to OSG and most of all to you Ange for finding your true self!!!

In one year, I see myself even more at peace with myself than I am now. I see myself still enjoying the fitter body and lifestyle I have been living the past 2 1/2 years. I see that inner glow showing through in MY eyes and smile like it does with YOU, AND I see a 5K in my future!

I want to be exactly where I am now, but perhaps a little wiser. Healthy, happy, fit, still in my grad school program (but further along in my research), and smiling!

Happy birthday, OSG!

This past year God has really brought me into a lot of freedom about who I am and my value and worth. So in one year… increased growth in this, loving who I am, even healthier than I am now, learning to listen to my body and respond to it. Done renting and in a house all our own! And writing poetry again, ones I can be proud of!

I love this post… and I’m so glad I stumbled onto OSG!

By October 31, 2010, I want to be living on the west coast with the hubby and the cats, and enjoying the start of a new phase of my career… either at work or at school. Phew. Said it! Guess now I gotta get working on it??? :)

One year from now, I want to be in Canada, working on whatever my Externship to be a chef has me doing on Halloween day. I want to come home at night to my boyfriend, and maybe go to a halloween party in fun costumes. Most of all, I want to be happy, healthy and glowing. =)

Congrats on 1 year!!
