I believe more in myself now that I have ever before. I don't mind giving a part of myself to others to inspire and motivate. I was afraid of sharing my story, I was afraid of being me, now I love every minute of my life. I realized that every breath I take is a wonderful thing. I am grateful to be alive and to have a wonderful family and wonderful friends that love me and cherish me. I am grateful to God for every minute in which I have a new chance at life. I read a quote this week that stunned me, it said "What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday" I then saw the significance of being grateful for everything I have.

Creating a Vision Board... Join in

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I will be creating my vision collage this week. I am very excited to be doing this. I will add a twist to it though. I am calling it my Personal Achievement Board. I will be including checklists/progress report and motivational pictures on it. I want it to work both as a tracking board and a goal achievement board that way I can see my progress and accomplishments all in one. I have to try out this theory and see how well it works still lol. I will be placing it somewhere I can see it on a daily basis and the board is a bit big so no where to hide it. This will be a family project and my 8 year old son is making one of his own so he can track his progress on reading and various other things.

Move on Ahead

Monday, February 03, 2014

This a poem that I wrote this week in my personal journal. It is talking about personal struggles in my own life but I believe it can be of help to others so I decided to share it. We all make mistakes and sometimes we do them when we know we shouldn't, other times we are blind to the consequences or ripple effects those mistakes will cause. Be it that week we were "too busy" to exercise, that extra donuts we ate because it was so delicious and our favorite, something we might have done to someone else or even to ourselves; mistakes are made and sometimes they can be unrepairable. But we all have to realize that we need to move on an this poem reflects that. I hope you like it.

What was I thinking?
Where was my head?
Where did my common sense go?
Today in hindsight it all looks so clear
Back then I thought I knew what to do
No gain there was
my loss I got
A lesson learned there was
So take a breath and move ahead
My head still held up high

    I can relate to eating something just because it tastes great. Barbecue potato chips, for example.

Life's Journey: 1

Thursday, December 05, 2013

In life we discover what bring us joy and what brings us sadness. We discover what is important and what is not. We sit down and contemplate everything we have done, everything we have not, and everything we are yet to do. We smile at our accomplishments and shake our heads when we remember our failures. We smile at those we love and look upon them fondly. We give thanks for those who love us and pray for those who don't. We meditate on the choices we have made that have brought us to where we are and we realize that past mistakes have finally ceased to matter. We realize that we are not done, that we must go on, and we continue to push forward. It is at this intercession that we pray we might be given the time necessary to do everything we must do; to be with those we love, to do more of what brings us joy, to do more of what is important, and to look less on the inconsequential things in our life's.


This Minute is My New Beginning

Saturday, November 30, 2013

November 30, 2013. I see the date on my calendar and contemplate on the past 11 months of my life, where did I start this year, what have I done, and what accomplishments have I had. A feeling of emptiness engulfs me. I feel I have no control over my life or over anything that concerns me. The optimism and energy I had at the beginning of the year is now depleted. I take a deep breath and allow my mind to go blank. I allow all my feelings to be what they are; the disappointment in myself, the lack of focus, the lack of direction, of goals, of believing in myself, of not doing enough and going beyond what I know I am capable of. I allow my feelings to encompass me, allowing myself to feel every one of them. Another deep breath. The nagging compressed feeling I have on my chest. I am aware of my heart beating at its own pace, telling me I am alive. A few minutes go by. I let go, I let go of the year behind me. I have a picture in my mind of what I want myself to accomplish, of where I want to be, of where I know I can be. And then I know, this minute is my new beginning.
