Surviving is not Living

About Me

with 3 comments

Always becoming, looking deeper and refusing to accept the status quo of the mundane. Surviving is not living. I saw that once and I continue to steal it without quoting because I can’t remember where I stole it from. Whoever you are, thank you, because I am constantly attempting to model that with my life. I wish my passion to be contagious and for my energy to feed others, in a productive and inspiring way. Negativity breeds negativity, and I don’t wish to create any more bad than what already exists. I want to be the best version of myself I can be, which involves taking the journey to health, to escape out of debt, and to organize my life so that I reclaim control. No more floating by waiting for tomorrow to come.

I thought I’d create this blog simply to chronical my weightloss journey, as I have been inspired by so many who have made amazing changes in their lives. I’ve also considered having a blog about child/infant loss because against my wishes I was forced to join that club when I delivered my son Damien on November 7, 2008, knowing he’d never take his first breath.  But I decided that no one thing can define who I am, and instead of creating several blogs with several themes, I decided to use this to reflect me, all parts of me. Of course I’m self-involved enough to believe I have a lot to tell people, so I do wish for my readership to be like, a million or something like that. That’d be pretty awesome. Okay, I’d settle for half a million.

And please visit the blogs I’ve highlighted in my blogroll. They’re all people I’ve very much enjoyed reading. And I hope they inspire you as they have me, even if your story is different than theirs.

  1. This is a wonderful “about me” page. I hear ya! And I’m so sorry about Damien.

    I found you on Eat, Live, Run today and I also live in Colorado and wanted to give a little hello. 🙂

      • Carrie,

        I’ve spent the last…forever….reading your blog this morning. I didn’t realize that you too had a stillborn baby boy…..I SO feel your pain! Somehow our stories seem to be so similar, yet they’re so different.

        Thank you for writing this blog and being such an amazingly strong woman – an example to us ALL!
