When I woke up Thursday morning I was pleasantly surprised to see myself on the WordPress homesite as apart of “Freshly Pressed”. I was honored to have been selected. The amazing comments that followed made me feel even more grateful. I want to thank EVERYONE who viewed and/or commented on my “Perfectly Pleated” post. Your comments mean so much to me because this time last year I was not the confident, smiling woman you see. I didn’t like myself and would bombard myself with hurtful thoughts. The way I dressed mirrored how bad I felt inside. I would wear frumpy, unflattering clothes because I felt ugly and wanted to hide my body. This began to change after having surgery to remove a 20lb tumor from my abdomen in November 2011. As I recovered from my surgery at home, I did some real soul searching. The outpouring of love from family, friends and co-workers helped to me stop hating myself. I decided to banish all negative thoughts about myself. I threw every piece of frumpy clothing I owned in the trash. I was not going to be that Georgette anymore. I was going to be the Georgette I always knew lived in inside of me. From that point on, Ive never looked back and couldn’t be happier.
Again, thank you for being wonderful and have an awesome weekend!!!
