Boy life is continually changing. I am the mom of a 23 year old daughter and recently the step mom of 10 and 13 year old sons. My husband and I have gained custody of the boys and life is so full. Our home is full of love but it is also a very hectic atmosphere. Football practice, driving back and forth to school, preparing balanced meals, cleaning the house, being attentive to my husband, being involved in my church...the list goes on and on. (not to mention the outside requirements of working a full time job)
It would be easy for a woman to LOSE HERSELF. I remember a time in my life that I was so overwhelmed with life that I BURIED MYSELF IN THE COMFORTS OF FOOD. in doing so, I would only end up heavier, feeling guilty and disgusted.
I have learned to REFRAME MY THINKING. I still need to CHANNEL MY ENERGY somewhere when I am overwhelmed..Now it is in exercise, prayer and meditation.
I am proud that I have learned/made the sacrifice when necessary to rise early and have my own quiet time. I know how to create my own personal sanctuary while others are still sleeping. Some mornings it is to read and to pray and other mornings it's to the gym to hit the elliptical machine and the weights.
I am absolutely in love with and adore the WOMAN THAT I'VE BECOME...I AM FOUND
