So I realized the other day that 25 is almost here for me! Only three weeks away! Where did 25 years go?
The biggest thing about this for me is that my life has gone in a direction completely off what I had thought my life would be. That's not a bad thing, just a thing that I didn't have planned out so I am still trying to put some pieces together and sort out which step to take next. Wouldn't it be nice if life had a bit more of a manual?
I suppose, if there was a manual that wouldn't be a whole lot of fun now, would it?
I can't say that my life has been bad. I have graduated high school, worked various jobs, dated different guys, had a baby, got married, went to college. I'm currently still at college and pregnant with baby #2. I honestly can't complain a whole lot. I have been having a pretty decent time of things.
But what things will 25 bring my way? Well, good things!
I have been spending some time learning about affirmations and the law of attraction and you know what, it's so true! If you want good things be positive! Find happiness in daily life and smile at the little things. These types of practices are something that I have been lacking in lately, but no more!
I have been slipping in and out of depression. Fighting with hubby about all kinds of things, much of it unimportant bull crap! I have been feeling down, lost and hopeless. Those types of feelings just don't get you anywhere! That's why depression can be so hard to get out of, you create a rut for yourself and focus on the negative all the time.
So, where am I going with this? What is the whole point of me writing this?
Well, since my 25th birthday is only a few weeks away I have decided that it is time to make some changes in my life! It is time for me to start working at getting things sorted out, getting some things in place nad starting my 25th year off with a BANG!
What sort of things am I looking at changing?
My health, for starters. I am a type 1 diabetic, I smoke, I am overweight. All of those things are just not good. Time to get to work on getting those areas of my life under control.
My mental health, is another place that needs some work. I am a high stress individual who gets worked up over everything! I get stressed, then I get depressed and I just don't seem to know how to relax!
I am completely unorganized! For anyone who doesn't believe me about this, you have not seen the state of my house! It's a disaster! I will be taking some before and after shots as I work my way through my house and get some organization happening!
Add exercise, healthy foods and a more natural lifestyle in there and get myself back up on my feet!
And this is only the beginning! I can't wait to see what the future will bring!
