Making a Change

EThis morning, I ponder to myself, as my baby boy sleeps next to me on the couch. I have reached a point in my life where I'm ready to make a change. Not one that will only be talked about or dreamed about. Ones that will become my reality. Today, I'm going to "step up". I'm going to strive to better my life. These changes will not only better my life, but be beneficial to my family as well. 

At the beginning of every year, people decide to make changes or goals. Things to better themselves and their lives. This year, I did the something. Although, now that I think back on it, I don't think I was truly ready to commit to those changes. I think I was excited off the high that simple comes to people at that time of year. But, now that my life has changed, I have come to the conclusion on my own to change. 

We now have two handsome boys. These boys who have captured my heart. These boys whose souls and hearts are pure. They also make me want to change. I want to be a better person for them. That I might be a wonderful example to them. Especially as they get older. Which is why now is the time to change. So it is well established and it's just part of who I am. 

So, I spent 18 months out of the last 27 of my life being pregnant. I no longer am familiar with my own body. I don't feel comfortable or condfident in my own skin. So, instead of mopping and feeling sorry for myself, I'm going to change it. I'm not going to diet, but change my lifestyle. I'm going to start by reading: Power Foods Lifestyle by Kristy Jo Hunt. 

Also, as many of you know, I jut started up my own Mary Kay business. I'm not even a week in and I'm already loving it. I started for a few reasons. One of them being, to build up my self-confidence. I know this is going to be great for me. Am I nervous? Yes. Overwhelmed? Yes. I mean, come on, I'm a mother of two boys under the age of two. (Side note: Alister turned twenty months old today). Excited? Absolutely. I can't wait to get this business going. 

I'm taking control of my life. Physically, emotionally and spiritually. I'm ready for a change. Will I struggle? Of course! Bettering your life isn't easy. Making change is hard. Will there be days I want to give up? You bet'cha! But, with prayer and encouragement, I know I can do and have it all. 

Take control of your life. Make the change. Be a better you. And never give up.
