Each of us has a perception of what beautiful is, as they say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. It has been eleven months of learning to see myself as beautiful and breaking down my own stereotypes and judging myself on what I can do and what I want to do! So many times in my life I allowed myself to only hear and see the negative. I never stopped to believe I was worth more than that!
On September 5, 2009 I took an incredible leap of faith, hope, and determination, and decided that I will put my past behind me and start a new life with Dr. Scinta.
I will be honest and say that during my first appointment I broke down and cried, not just tiny tears, but huge crocodile tears! Tears that were filled with years of frustration, fear and negativity! Dr. Scinta listened and took a considerable amount of time with me. Wendy is one of the very few doctors who said she would help me and never lost sight of what our agreed upon goal was!
Eleven months later I can tell you that I am so close to reaching my goal, that sometimes when I am looking at myself in the mirror the tears are still falling down! But these tears are not the same as before, these are filled with self worth, hard work and a bounty of happiness!
This journey has been priceless to me, and these are a few of my favorite thoughts I have taken away. Keep listening to all the positive things around you! Enjoy each day you have and keep believing that you are worth more than you ever imagined and that ultimately you will be better than OK, you will be GREAT!
There are not enough words to say thank you to Dr. Scinta and her staff for all they have done for me! I can also tell you that it was by pure chance I found Dr. Scinta, but in the end it was Dr. Scinta who found me and brought me back to a life worth living for!
