I can truly say that I’m in a happy place in my life. Despite what is going on in the world I’m happy. As many of you know I’m determined to work on myself and put myself first this year. And I have been doing that and getting some great results too. I feel better and my attitude is better. I don’t feel the need to always check on others before I check on myself. My marriage has gotten a lot better and I feel like we are in a really good space. I felt selfish at first because I have never put myself first and, to be honest, wasn’t sure what that would look like. But I take time to focus on my needs and wants. When I get up in the morning I check my attitude to see what is going on with me today. I pray about it and focus on correcting a negative attitude. Most of the time I didn’t sleep well and thus a negative attitude. I make sure I correct it before I start my day and engage with the people that I live with. I also take the time to do the things that I enjoy. I make this a daily habit because if I know that I’m going to be able to do something that I enjoy it makes the day better. I’m not saying that I neglect other people but I don’t make it all about them anymore. Since I have been doing this I have noticed a change in my household. They have noticed how happy I am and they are doing things to make a change in their lives as well. As a wife and mother, I had always neglected myself and didn’t find time to do the things that I wanted to do. It was always about everyone else. But since the kids are young adults and the hubby doesn’t need all my time and attention. I felt like this was a great time to set out and change myself. Change is hard and changes from within are even harder. But I’m committed to this process and see where my life takes me. I’m not finished working on myself but I’m glad that I started.
