My Birthday

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Yesterday, I celebrated the big 44! Lately, I have been struggling with my emotions. I am not sure if I'm going through the "change" or what! But, I haven't been myself at all! Just at the drop of a hat, I could start crying for absolutely no reason. I know something is wrong. So, I scheduled an appointment to meet with a counselor this month! I'm not ashamed to admit this, because sometimes we just need to get some help to get through some difficult times.

However, with my birthday, I felt so much love! When I took my little buddy out for a walk, I said a little prayer to God and said thank you for another year! Then, I proceeded to do my workout. Even my heart rate monitor wished me a Happy Birthday, which put a smile on my face! Just the little things sometimes can get me going! Then, it started! I received multiple birthday wishes from my family and friends! Even, my Spark Buddies and Spark Team members showed their love! My co-workers decorated my office door and celebrated with me. I haven't felt this way in a long time! Once more, I just thanked God for my special day and I want to thank all of you that wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday! It meant more than you will ever know!

As far as my workout went yesterday, I lifted weights and ran for 20 minutes without stopping to walk. I was so proud! Then, in the evening, I did my Insanity workout, which kicked my butt! But, how many 44 year olds can say they did this? LOL!

Here is my birthday picture. Not bad for 44!

Thanks again Spark Friends! You truly made my day!

    You look gorgeous ==== Happy belated birthday in passing. And well done for your journey emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

There is NO SHAME in going to a counselor. I see a therapist once a week. I called him when I felt I needed some neutral support. It is working well for me. I am sure it will for you too. But it takes times.

YOU CAN DO IT. Sometimes we just need a little help.

    Happy Belated Birthday Beautiful! I'm glad you enjoyed your day. emoticon emoticon

I have been to therapy before and it worked well for me. I'd go again if I felt the need. Usually when I start crying for no reason (or one that I can immediately think of) depression is setting in! I try to keep myself out of that place. I hope you're feeling better and that you enjoy your day! Wishing you the best! emoticon
