I AM!

Image

I don’t take those words lightly.  I have recently changed my life for the better and I am making a conscious effort to experience and be present in the day, hour and even the minute.

For years I have been a mere spectator.  Keeping my head down as I walk through the gale winds that have defined my life.  Never lifting my chin to see that the wind was under my own control 99% of the time.  Lifting my head, breathing in and opening my eyes and truly wanting change were the switch to creating a life that was a good one.  One with clear wonderful memories not just looming dark shadows that I could not define.  I finally inhabit my body!  Even if the events of the present are painful, I am feeling.  That is something that I never let myself do before. My hiding places were many.  Alcohol, food, sex, and outright denial to name a few. My core though, never stopped crying out to be whole. Now I am listening and acting on my soul’s request for the beautiful feeling of being truly alive. before me is a truly happy woman with a beautiful existence.  I am loved deeply by my family and friends but now, most importantly, by me.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

Today I begin a journey that for now will be just for me.  I had to laugh when I had an option, upon creating a blog, to upload a picture.  At least for now, thats not going to happen.  For years and years I have struggled with my weight.  Now, at 46 and facing wonderful, productive changes in my life, it is time to get on the path to good health.  Currently, I am 100 pounds overweight. I have four children and someday do want to see my grand kids.  I have succeeded as a mom and a professional and am so proud of how far I have come in my journey.  In one week I am moving into a new home.  Directly accross from my front door is a fully equipped gym for my use.  I am committed to disciplining myself to make that gym a staple in my day.  Today I say goodbye to fast, fried food and commit to becoming a healthy, conscious eater.  If I want to truly live I must change. and change I will!

Today is the fi…
