Love Yourself a Little!
I was watching the Olympics last night, and I've come to the conclusion that Shawn Johnson is an awesome role model for young girls. She's sixteen, and has an awesome body, even though she's a tiny little girl. Seriously, seeing her up against some of the Chinese and Romanian gymnasts, she looks like a REAL person: strong arms and thighs and pulls herself up to show off every inch of her height. I know my thighs are never going to be the size of Giselle Bundchen's, but I would *love* if my thighs were as strong and capable as Shawn's.
And, as a side note... everything went perfect today. I had my divorce hearing, and for a while I wasn't sure if my ex was going to show or not. Unfortunately, things were hanging in the balance as to whether this was going to be a final hearing or a preliminary hearing all based on whether he showed. He did. He wasn't very civil to me and barely said 10 words to me, but you know what, that's fine. I'm not the same woman he knew and married. I'm different, in a good way, on the inside and out. This year has been a year of growth for me, and I know I'm strong. I just didn't want this to drag out any longer than it needed to. Thanks to all who wished me well. I think your positive thoughts helped make things go as well as they did today.
