My journey to find what really makes ME happy

I'm 37 years old and after a wake up call..woke up and realized that I had totally lost my personal identity. I was a mom and wife and that's about all I could come up with for my identity. It was sad and scary. I had a few months without my husband and I started to get myself back. I found some things that gave me pleasure that I had given up somewhere along the way. I got some self confidence back and also got a lot closer to God.

I'm 37 years old and after a wake up call..woke up and realized that I had totally lost my personal identity. I was a mom and wife and that's about all I could come up with for my identity. It was sad and scary. I had a few months without my husband and I started to get myself back. I found some things that gave me pleasure that I had given up somewhere along the way. I got some self confidence back and also got a lot closer to God.

I made a pledge to myself to NOT let myself get in my 'comfort coma' again. To make sure I do thinks that I ENJOY..not just put all my needs and wants aside to serve others. And, also to love MYSELF so that I CAN love others.

Some things that I re-discovered...I'm a country girl! I love nature and being in the country. I love organic gardening and preserving what I raise and harvest. I want chickens in the spring. It would be so nice to go out and get my own fresh eggs. I love to cook but need to get back into the habit of making things from scratch. I've been really lazy the past few years and most of what we eat is processed junk. That's what made hubby and the kids happy and it was fast and easy so that's what we've gotten used to eating. But, we all feel lousy a lot of the time because of it!

So, now my goals are to get back to eating a whole foods diet. As much as possible. I refuse to cut out entire food groups or say i'm never going to eat a certain food again. That just leads to temptation and failure. For me anyway. Been there..done that. I want to continue to be active and I want to shed these pounds that have been making me feel like a failure for 6 years now! I can do it!

Hey there! Thank you for the sunshine goodie the other day. Unfortunately, the mediation didn't go well. I trust that God is still working, though, so I hope that the stress and hurt wasn't for nothing.

I hope things are going well this week and that you're seeing a little sunshine yourself.
