It’s been such a long time since I blogged, that I feel a little rusty.
I am happy to say that (after starting this transformational program that I’m on), that I have now lost over 15 lbs. It has been a very joyous time after the first few weeks and the support group that I am a part of have been out of this world. I feel as though I finally fit in somewhere, and that feels good. Living life one day at a time, and on a quest for optimal health is something I can honesty say has been life changing for me. The weight has merely been a bonus. I feel physically well. And my energy level has drastically changed. I find myself doing walking videos every day. Not because I have to, but because I want to. This all has been an answered prayer. I have a health coach that helps me keep on track and one that contacts me every single day. The accountability has been a joy. My spirit soars at even waking up each day.
Even though I have been very healthy, I still have found myself (most recently) to have some stress about my son’s school. He will be starting Kindergarten this year and out of the nest he will go…I pray and hope for him to have a great school experience as back when I was a child, I don’t always remember things being so easy. At the time there were a lot of changes that were taking place, not just within the school, but in the world. I grew up without the Internet and things were just generally…different. I remember going to a mom’s group when he was very young and expressing my concern for him even then and another veteran mom told me to “raise him with my arms wide open.” Meaning, allow the Lord in, and all will be as it should be.
It has occurred to me most recently that even though I have been spending more time walking and doing healthy habitual things, that I haven’t been spending the time I used to with the Lord in the morning. I would say that that is a major factor in my anxiety right now and it’s something that is so near and dear to my heart that it nearly breaks in thinking I could have unintentionally taken this new road without Him at my side. Blogging is a large part of my spirituality and how I can reassess where I’m at in my life but especially with God. There is no life for me without His guidance. It doesn’t work. And just as I was before, my life without Him, is nothing. From now on I must be renewed every day, and then I will continue to transform my life, healthy habits and all—and Amen to that!
I pray you have a great day and remember, as always, that God is with you. Don’t forget to reach for him each day because he is there and happy to hear from you with every second that you need Him. Amen.
