A Winneconnie Weekend
This weekend, I'm headed to WinneConnie! It's a beautiful place north of OshKosh, Wisconsin. My Aunt (Ciocia in Polish!) has a lake house there and I'm spending the night! Marc will be home taking care of Nana and going to work but I'm excited to go and just enjoy some time with my inlaws!
Finding these pictures on Facebook, I was startled to see pictures of myself where I could barely recognize me!
I showed these to Marc yesterday and all he could say is wow, I really couldn't see the difference until seeing it in pictures.
To me the differences aren't all skin deep. I can look at these pictures and just feel the sadness and despair.
I also notice that I have only a handful of pictures of myself from this time in my life. All of the above pictures were from friends Facebook accounts.
It's important to see the difference's between where I am now as a person, and where I was then. I am strong now, emotionally, physically, and mentally. We are all growing and learning and what we take from our past shows us where we can be in our future. All we have to do is work hard! Show yourself that you are worth it, whatever it is that you are struggling with!
Have a wonderful weekend all, I will be back Sunday night!
