Refocus; Now is not the time to quit!

Sunday, May 05, 2013

This is my attempt to encourage myself to re-focus my efforts on becoming a healthier woman. I admit the last few weeks has been rough. 4/13/2012 my mom died; 4/13/2013 my sister in law died....It has been emotional and I have not focused on eating right and I have missed too many work outs. That's ok. Sometimes life is pretty rough. Sometimes we need to focus on other things.......Now I need to re-focus on making healthy food and exercise choices.

This is a journey. I was side-tracked in the house of grief. I've done my crying; and may lose more tears, but now is the time to leave that house and get back on the road. I will never forget my dear Mother, or my lovely sister-in-law. One day I will see the both again...just not today.

Today....God has chosen to leave me on this earth. I have the privilege of getting to know Him more and more. He has people for me to love; and people to love me. There are adventures God wants to take me on. Songs He wants me to sing. Words to be heard, repeated and written. ....Life to be lived...So the road is calling me.....God is leading the way...He says, "take my hand, come with me and let me take you where you have not been. Let me show you things you have not seen. Let me love you more that you have ever been loved." I'm taking His hand....I'd be a fool if I didn't.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your losses. Sounds like you have a good plan to recover by staying close to the Lord. He knows our sorrows and weeps with us and for us. You will see your loved ones again one day in his good time, and in the meantime, do what you are doing: Re-focus on the work you have to do here! emoticon
