Oh I loved this one! It’s all poetic and mysterious. And says so much without saying much at all. Good job!

I first heard this quote in the first Princess Diaries movie when I was 12. I still love it (and the movie, haha :D)!

I have been a HUGE fan or your blog since seeing you in Self mag back in Nov. I have wanted to post before, but didn’t want to take up your time, but seeing your post today thought I would share this with you…..You are a breath of fresh air in this world of negativity. I read your blog daily (or twice a day!) ;-) I cannot commend you enough for all your positivity, wonderful recipes, inspiring struggles, milestones, thoughts on food and life! Good for you for following your heart and doing what you love. I picture myself when reading your road to health series and also your letters to yourself, etc., etc. Though I am definitely not to the point where you are, you have definitely given me the push to show myself that it is possible to love myself. THANKS ANGELA!!!
I leave you with a quote I found the other day. Not sure who said it, but I love it and it is so true! Must say this to myself daily! Fits the title of this post perfectly…..

“BE YOURSELF-EVERYONE ELSE IS ALREADY TAKEN”

I really like the quote. I like the idea that it’s placed in a place where you can see it all throughout the day! I just stumbled up on your blog and I’m glad I did! Great blog!
