So… Today’s post is supposed to be about an “Obviously Photoshopped” photo, but I have decided instead to share a personal journey and struggle I have gone through and dealt with for the longest time…

It all started with a trip to Greece when I was a kid, the food there was soooo good. I don’t know what it is about another country and it’s cuisine that makes it so good, but it was, as I’ve already said (and may just say repeatedly without ever actually, adequately capturing the essence of the magnitude of its goodness), Oh so good, and since we returned I have chased that feeling of deliciousness. Sadly my awesome holiday had left a giant void in me I could not fill, and oh how I tried…

It’s been a long road of tears, food, split pants, more food, more tears, candy, pizza, ice-cream, chocolates, crisps, Akalwaya’s steak sandwiches, McDonald’s, you get the drift… A never ending spiral of soul devouring eating! It had eventually got so bad, that when I looked at my pet dog Colby I could see the cuts of steak which resided under his pelt, fattening him up as I waited for the Zombie Apocalypse which would result in the closing of convenience stores, restaurants and supermarkets so that I would, out of necessity only of course, have to do the unthinkable…

Thankfully for dear Colby, this all came to an end when I saw the topic of today’s daily create, and voila the moment of change hit and before I knew it, through belief, dedication and an appreciation of the little things (which I couldn’t previously bend down before to grasp), and within a day, I have managed to recreate myself, and you can too, all you need is a little belief…

…and maybe a little help from PhotoShop.
