I'm Back.... never really left

Friday, January 22, 2021

My last blog was 2011...
My husband had just left me for another woman... I was scared..I felt small... and worthless. It was pretty dark.
Fast forward 10 years...
I am remarried to the most wonderful man! I love him. My kids love him. My parents love him. My extended family loves him... see a trend here?? :D
If I only could have seen how much I would grow. How much stronger I would become. I would not have felt afraid....just excited.
My kids are now grown. Both graduated high school with honors. Both are in University. I am so proud of them.
My life isn't always easy... but it is good!

I follow a social media personality: Kristina Kuzmic. She is awesome... last year she posted a blog about changing your outlook on life. So each night, for a year (all of 2020), as I went to bed for the night I typed into my phone(I am usually on it anyway) 1 good thing that happened to me. (not just one thing I am grateful for... lol that is easy... I would have had a year of saying husband and kids!) Sometimes I had to think... especially on a hard day... but even on the hardest days, SOMETHING good happened... even if it was small. I now have a year of good memories. (in 2020 even!!) By February, I had started to see the potential power of this to change my outlook. I started another daily entry: 1 thing I did well today...Each good thing was followed by a compliment (as if someone else had given me a compliment on that good thing I had done ) This was harder to do... I am very hard on myself... but I can readily compliment others. It is amazing to read back on a year's worth of compliments. These 2 simple entries changed the way I look at my life and also the way I look at myself.
Any way...
Now I am back... working on my weight, working on my health and confident that I can do this. I know I can reach my goals... again. The future looks good. It is no longer scary. I am excited for the opportunities that are coming my way!
