My name is Larie and I'm an addict.
One definition of addict is: To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively. I'm addicted to quite a few things, writing, cooking, collecting aprons, and some other quirky stuff but I am most addicted to becoming better; a better Larie. I DESIRE to do and be better each day. There are days I feel as if I could have exerted more effort, but I don't beat myself up about it. Instead I thank God for giving me another chance to work on it and guiding me through.
Working on being a better me requires prayer, honest self reflection, and accepting that I will never be perfect. I have learned that I must focus on being a better Larie first because doing so then allows me to be a better mother, friend, author, entrepreneur, and chef because those things are labels, not WHO I am.
Everyday I'm a better me
