...have always scared me. Just to be honest here.
It has been safer to live my life choiceless. The victim. Being controlled by everyone around me or what I think they think of me.
Lately, though, God has been challenging my thinking. My husband and I have been doing this parenting/relationship series that talks about being a powerful person.

Powerful people always have a choice.

Powerful people can't control anyone but themselves.

This thinking has revolutionized my parenting, my marriage, my relationships outside of my family, etc. etc. etc....
I feel like I'm being turned inside out and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The quote from todays Healthy Reflection gives me goose bumps!

"Our lives are a sum total of the choices we have made." -Wayne Dyer

It makes me aware of how the little things add up. Calories, minutes, pennies, momentum.
Hmmm....makes me ponder.

    Great blog!

So true...I think our society is "encouraging" its members to be choicelss and just float through society, accepting what "it" feeds go with the WRONG...and our families, relationships pay for it! Proud of you and your hubby for making a change, challenging yourselves...for being willing to seek GOD and let HIM deal with change you!
