Day 19/20 – Affirmations

I’m trying affirmations to myself all throughout the day. Like when I’m walking from one place to another, when I’m standing in line, on hold equals saying something good about me. I also am trying to visualize what I want weight wise. A friend told me holding onto weight is protection and I know I’m protecting myself from the pain I felt before and so I need to really let myself feel. I need to not hide and I hope these affirmations help me on my journey. I’m such a work in progress. What are little things you do daily for your self care?

Day 16 – Motivation

This woman motivates me. I have PCOS and I’ve had this heart attack and I’ve gained weight. I want to lose the weight and I get so hard on me like I can’t lose it but I can. It helps when women like her share their journey and you watch them for some time and see they do walk the walk they talk. I want to be able to give back again like I used to and one day I will. Loving this post from yesterday and I want these words to settle in and make me feel good about my journey.

Here’s to this next year ahead. Let’s see what I can get done!

Changes, They Happen…

I decided to change my major, my career. I’ve always loved school. I wasn’t a good student when I was in high school. After some HUGE life changes, I decided to head back to school and get a degree, for me, for my children, and for others who may feel they’re too old to go back to school.

My original major was Business and I was determined to be a CPA. You know, I’m good with accounting and other finances BUT my passion has always been to be there for others. To do good. I’ve changed my major to English which means I have one extra semester of Jr. College before I can transfer. It’s OK. That’s what I think holds some of us back. We think we have to have something done in a certain amount of time but that isn’t true. We just need to finish our path and I will do that.

Here’s to an adventure in education and one day I will be able to give back what was given to me for years.
