When your story doesn't make you cry, you know you have healed! #quote Truth.
words of wisdom
But still sometimes a good cry feels good and helps you to heal. Crying shows that you still feel.
1 year later, not there yet.
Such a great life lesson!
"When you can tell your story and it doesn't make you cry, you know you have healed." This is so true! I remember a night at one of my friend's houses when we had her parents over, and when they wanted to know more than my stock surface answers to what was going on, as I told them, I found myself Sobbing. Embarrassing, but that's where I was at that point.
Breakup Quote 51
Do not wait by the phone for his call...you are worth his attention, and he is being rude and disrespectful to you if he just calls when he feels like it, expecting you to be doing nothing but waiting for him. Do not date for years on end expecting a proposal either...if you are ready and he isn't, move on.

#Barbie's proportions brought to life: 5'9" 110lbs 39" bust, 18" waist, 33"hips.--I've never understood this. Wouldn't Barbie just look like Barbie is she was real life sized?
” Some people have skeletons in their closet. I have an enormous Barbie in mine. She stands about six feet tall with a 39” bust, 18” waist, and 33” hips. These are the supposed measurements of Barbie if she were a real person. I built her as a part of the first National Eating Disorder Awareness Week (NEDAW) at my high school, later introducing her to Hamilton College during its first NEDAW in 2011. When I was a little girl, I played with my Barbie in her playhouse, sending her and Ken on dates that always ended with a goodnight kiss. I had fond times with my Barbie, and I admired her perfect blonde locks and slim figure. Barbie represented beauty, perfection and the ideal for young girls around the world. At least, as a seven-year-old, that is what she was to me. In January 2007, I was looking for a way to make my peers realize the importance of eating disorders and body image issues. I was frustrated after quitting the cheerleading squad, frustrated with pressures to look and act a certain way and most of all frustrated with the eating disorder controlling my life. I wanted to do something that would turn others’ apathy into action. That evening, my neighbor and I found two long pieces of wood and started measuring. With a little math, nails and hammering, we built a stick figure that stood about six feet tall. The chicken wire came next. Surrounding her wooden frame, we created a body that wasn’t much thicker than a stick figure, but had the womanly and unattainable curves and proportions that impressionable young girls idealize. We stuffed the chicken wire with newspaper and created a body that creepily leaned against the wall in my neighbor’s basement. She now needed some skin, so I brought her back to my apartment and employed the masterful art of papier maché. Taking stacks of newspaper, glue and water, I skipped my high school semi-formal dance to give my girl some skin. Oddly, I started to feel my fondness for Barbie return, now not as a plaything but as a tool to reveal the negative body image that she promotes. As I papier machéd, I couldn’t forget Barbie’s impressive bust and blew up balloons over and over again to achieve a perfect 39” measurement. Once her chest was secured, I spent hours dipping and smoothing the paper, and later mixed paints to replicate her seemingly perfect white skin tone. With a little hard work and a lot of time, a headless, footless and handless body soon stood in my apartment. But it was then I became stumped. I couldn’t figure out how to recreate the recognizable face of the Barbie we all know and love. With NEDAW just around the corner, I was panicked. On my way to get office supplies, I drove by a Toys ‘R’ Us, and that’s when it hit me. Remember that Barbie with just shoulders and a head, meant for you to practice brushing her hair? I confidently walked into the toy store for the first time since I was a kid. I found the Barbie head, found a friend to assemble that head, and clothed Barbie for her first debut. I dressed Barbie in my old clothes. The skirt she still has on today is a reminder of who I once was. That skirt, a size double zero, used to slip off my waist when I was struggling with anorexia. I put it on Barbie to serve as a reminder that the way Barbie looks, the way I once looked, is not healthy and is not “normal,” whatever normal might mean. My Barbie’s role is simple. She grabs the attention of apathetic onlookers and makes them think and talk about an issue that thrives in silence. In the last four years, Barbie has surpassed my expectations, attracting attention and sparking conversation among listeners and readers across the nation. Once a year, at the end of February, Barbie comes out of the closet to meet my friends, strangers, and those apathetic onlookers. During NEDAW, she reminds people that eating disorders and body image issues are serious and prevalent. Holding an awareness week in high school or college is just one way to get students to discuss these important issues. However, constant discussion and education is key to dealing with and overcoming eating disorders. Despite her bizarre appearance, Barbie provides something that many advocacy efforts lack. She reminds of something we once loved, while showing us the absurdity of our obsession with perfection. More “Get Real, Barbie” statistics:* • There are two Barbie dolls sold every second in the world. • The target market for Barbie doll sales is young girls ages 3-12 years of age. • A girl usually has her first Barbie by age 3, and collects a total of seven dolls during her childhood. • Over a billion dollars worth of Barbie dolls and accessories were sold in 1993, making this doll big business and one of the top 10 toys sold. • If Barbie were an actual women, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe. • Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs. • At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia.

barbie's proportions brought to life: 5 feet, 9 inches tall, 110 pounds, 39 inch bust, 18 inch waist, 33 inch hips, and size 3 shoe. this is why eating disorders are so prevalent in our society. being "skinny" is what is viewed as perfect, but in actuality God made us perfectly beautiful the way we are, no need to look at barbie for inspiration on how to look. here are some random tid-bits of information about barbie. • there are two barbie dolls sold every second in the world. • the target market for barbie doll sales is young girls ages 3-12 years of age. • a girl usually has her first barbie by age 3, and collects a total of seven dolls during her childhood. • over a billion dollars worth of barbie dolls and accessories were sold in 1993, making this doll big business and one of the top 10 toys sold. • barbie calls this a "full figure" and likes her weight at 110 lbs. • at 5'9" tall and weighing 110 lbs, barbie would have a BMI (body mass index) of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. she likely would not menstruate. • if barbie was a real woman, she'd have to walk on all fours due to her proportions. • "slumber party barbie" was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled "how to lose weight" with directions inside stating simply "don't eat". this is part of the "get real barbie" campaign :)

http://howtostudyforcpcexam.com/icd-10-training/ - Get ICD 10 training before the deadline, it will be worth it. Trust me. ICD 10 is the future of medical coding, and it is vital for anyone in the medical field to know about it.
Much of the doubts that are thrown towards the ICD-10 come from the fact that this has been the second time that the ICD-10 implementation has been delayed. As a result, nearly everyone in the healthcare industry (which probably includes you) has, to say the least, felt like the adjusted deadline will once again become unmet. www.mpaagroup.com #ICD10 #MU #practicemanagement #mpaagroup

Women are all beautiful. The top women aren't hotter, nor are the bottom! You aren't helping a body positive movement by putting down skinny girls. We are ALL beautiful the way we are!
HELL YEAH! You know, I am so SICK of all the crap floating around that shame one body type in order to validate another. People make such horrible comments about skinny women... assuming that they are un healthy, or calling them "scarey"... or saying "she should eat a sandwich"...claiming that "real women have curves"... etc etc etc. You know what I say? F*CK THAT! Come on! Women come in ALL shapes and sizes. I don't advocate that women starve themselves to achieve a size 0, but I also don't advocate over eating and being obese. Just because a woman has curves does not make her any more "real" than someone who doesn't. We need to stop body shaming. We need to stop the crude remarks. We need to stop making fun of fat people, we need to stop making fun of thin people, and we MUST STOP making fun of women (and men) who suffer from anorexia. These people are in as much pain as those who suffer from a food addiction. It is an illness that requires a little bit of love and understanding. Love and accept women for who they are as a person, and not what their clothing size is. The body shaming must end!
I love this because a lot of people think they are doing good by saying oh curvy women are beautiful and being skinny is in attainable so skinny women are bad or anorexic. They say this to make curvy women feel better but the truth is they are making skinny people feel self conscious or ugly. I am tired of people always putting down people with the opposite body type. Body type should not be a beauty standard. All women are beautiful, no matter what they look like.
exactly. I am so sick of seeing people hate on curvy girls, and more recently, skinny girls - every body type can be beautiful as long as a positive attitude shines through!
Wow finally.....a positive message about body image that doesn't bash every opposite body type

What sort of person thinks there is nothing wrong with asking the folks tasked with teaching our children to take a 20% cut on a $50,000 annual salary, but thinks it's a terrible idea to ask millionaires to pay an additional 3% in taxes?
Being Liberal posted this on Facebook: The correct answer, of course, is members of the Republican party and tea party.
The rich have no problem sending their children to private schools so they're blind to the value of our public school system and our teachers. Tax the rich!
What's wrong with this ... they only work until 3:00, have eleven weeks off in summer, are responsible for the emotional, social and educational well-being of 25 or more children all at the same time ... sounds more than fair to me!
