Simply Fab

Simply Fabulous Me

“I am going to make everything around me beautiful. That will be my life.”

Hi. It's me again. Now I'm Simply Fabulous. Don't you agree? We all are fabulous so join the club. We all have special gifts that make us who we are. One of my favorite songs is from the Broadway Musical, On the Town. It's called. "Lucky to Be Me". That's what I have just found out after all these years. I really am, Lucky to be Me. So take a deep breath and look in the mirror at the person starring back at you and say three times, "I am Simply Fabulous". Yes, you are. Just ask me. I'll agree.

 If you haven't guessed by now, I'm a throwback to the old musicals. That comes from my showbiz days. In my youth I won "Most Talented Miss Florida World". Yes, I was a singing songstress and cruise directress back in the days. I learned a lot about myself through song and I love sharing my songbook with you.

Well this site is part of the puzzle. Who am I? Do I really know my authentic self? Would I recognize me if I saw myself at a party? Probably not. Hopefully, someone will notice me. Right now I feel like the song in the musical, Chicago, called "Cellophane". Yes, it's true." You can look right through me, walk right by me, and never know I'm there."

“One day someone is going to hug you so tight that all of your broken pieces will stick back together.”

The song you should sing everyday also from Chicago sung by Richard Gere is, " Razzle Dazzle Them"! That's what we all must do. No one wants to hear our sad story however, invent a new you and tell them what they want to hear. It's true. If you tell your story enough times even, you'll believe it and become the person you really want to be. Nobody knows your story accept you so why not Razzle Dazzle them?

So let's get our paint and powder out and put that permanent smile on our face. Let's feel that Million Dollar rush! You are already a winner! So make it 10 Million$$$.

OK. Now comes the truth. I am reinventing myself. I am on the Mood Foodie Diet and  have already lost 45lbs. Rarely is it recognized how depression takes a toll on the body. Either you lose weight or gain weight. This is looked on by society as good or bad. Who cares what you feel on the inside. It's only, to many, the outside that counts. You're secret is safe with me. Well, I'm on the see-saw side of the scale that proves I'm way over my healthiest weight. Emotional eating is one of the worst side effects of depression. Many of us don't eat and others, like me, overeat. Food is my comfort zone. I guess that is why they call it comfort food. Alone, I can eat a whole pepperoni pizza and a pint of Ben and Jerry's Fudge Brownie ice cream even before dinner.

Enough of that. I am now really going to be, "Simply Fabulous" and true to myself. While my weight doesn't bother me, my doctor says otherwise. So together we can reinvent ourselves to be all that we can be.....whatever that means. One thing to know for sure is that "God loves you and so do I."

Write me your story. Let's do this together. In closing one of the songs that inspires me most is from LaCage aux folles entitled, The Best of Times is Now. So go out and take charge of your life! Live your life in the Now this is your moment in time! And yes, you are Simply Fabulous!
