I AM WORTH IT!!!!
I am worth investing in. I am worth the sacrifice and the dedication. I am worth the sweat and tears. I am worth the discipline. I am worth the struggle...because I AM investing in me, myself, my happiness, my health, my lifestyle, my habits, my desires, my values, my wants, my needs...I AM investing in ME!!!
Only Believe: This is my motto. There is power in believing. What you speak out of your mouth directly affects your heart. If you want to feel something, speak it. There is power in our tongues, our language, our words.
There is power in what you believe in. Do I believe in myself? Do I believe in a higher power, a spiritual force that can provide me with strength, mercy, grace, hope, and what I need to succeed? Yes!!!
My strength comes through my faith. My faith in Christ and the Holy Spirit. I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens ME!!!
To Him who is ABLE to do exceedingly abundantly more than I can ask or imagine....Ephesians 3:15 This is where my strength comes from.
My strength also comes through WHO I AM. I AM valuable, an honest and caring person. I am devoted and loyal. I am a great friend and a wonderful wife. I am a mother and a daughter. I am a sister. I am a child of God.
I say all these things because there are many times that I need to repeat these things in order to believe in me and believe in who I am. I am capable and I have the ability to lead a healthy life. I can have a lifestyle that promotes health and happiness. I am a role model to my girls. I am making so many changes in my life, and I am cleaning house.
I am sweeping out the bad - which is habits and thoughts and I am disinfecting any germs that have come out of my mouth to effect my heart.
I am redecorating and putting up new decor. I am redesigning and creating a routine that will promote positive energy and healthy returns.
As seasons change...I am changing....and It is my season for change!!!!

I want to have the energy to spend quality time with my family and to promote an active lifestyle we can all enjoy.
