It's all how you look at it, isn't it!
The path can be frightening and full of rocks and cracks and potholes..and instead of turning around and running back to your comfort zone, ...you can turn it all around by choosing to look at that very same path in a different way.
Instead of "frightening", you can look at it as an amazing adventure, just waiting for you..full of new experiences and people to meet, ..new things to discover with lots of blessings!
Don't be afraid,...just believe.
Have a happy week ahead!

Every time I get going..something gets in my way!!! My children's father was diagnosed with level 4 lung cancer..so my daughter came up from Alabama for 2 weeks to visit and spend time with her dad. (not my current husband, John)
So..there goes the plan..right out the window!
I will keep mounting the horse and eventually...WE WILL RIDE!!!! haaaaaaa
Life just seems to want to sweep you away at times, doesn't it!
Guess I'll just call myself the Champion of New Beginnings because that's all I seem to do is start over again and again and again and again and again.
Oh well...I'm good at it...lol.
Hope all you sparky lovely people have a wonderful day and get out to enjoy the sunshine.

I'm tracking my food today and I got hubby to do the one mile walk /Leslie Sansone indoor/ with me today. He made it to a half mile and I finished the full mile. Well, that's a start..and I'm proud of us! We're going to start a healthy heart diet. The doctor says that he will have to have a defibrillator put in in several months and so that's that.
He's been going through a depression. As an over the road truck driver, his world was always moving...rollin', rollin', rollin'. Now...everything's different. His world has come to a complete STOP. My world was also moving with little hyper Haley and now my world has come to a complete STOP.
Time to get rollin' again..lol.
I was walking around the grocery store and noticed that my lower back muscles were starting to hurt. It's simply from being too sedentary. I don't like it...so, it's back to...
Begin Again...and that, I shall. It should be easy with John on board. I just know that he'll start feeling better after one week of doing the walking tape and eating healthier.
Time for the blues to go away and the sunshine to come out! (Unfortunately, here in our town in Michigan, we just had a good 6 inches of snow dumped on us last night..haha) Oh well..that's the way it goes, eh? :)
Please pray for us. I basically had to brow-beat John into exercising....but it worked...now we can build on it.
Day #1 : Success
Hope you're all doing well and accomplishing your goals.
See ya soon!
