I loved hearing the awesome responses to the first before and after post! Hearing your individual journeys is so beautiful and helps me remember that we’re not alone in becoming, staying, and living healthy!
Knowing where I started, and where I am now has been one of the most positive things I’ve gained from this blog since last August. While the physical changes are obvious, the mental, emotional and spiritual growth/changes are even more beneficial and…were even more necessary. Over the past month, I feel like the WORLD has been lifted off my shoulders. Those of you who are in life coaching with me know that sometimes the WORST thing for your life and your future is being involved with a “life-sucker”. It’s that simple. If there is someone(are someones) in your life that drain you of time, energy, thought…you NEED to separate yourself. It is what is best for your life, but also what is best for theirs, believe it or not. You will not only feel more peace, I guarantee it…but you will start to see drastic changes as you dedicate the “lost time” to your spiritual life, physical health, and those relationships that are healthy, mutual, and beneficial.
Here are some of my favorite quotes on change/improvement.
“Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C. S. Lewis
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein
“Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can’t prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power. ” Blaine
I hope you all had a day full of love and laughs with your dads today. And for those of you whos hearts are hurting without a father today, know that you have a Father in heaven who loves you more than you could even imagine.
Here’s another before and after.
