Lightly.

Today I have decided to purposely smile. I decided I would release my anger and worries and most importantly the expectations I put on myself. What a huge difference that has made. In a very short matter of time. Now I realize nothing is a quick fix and its something I will battle with for a long time if not always. But It is such a relief to know there is something I can do when outside circumstances are not preventable. I have no control over some things in my life right now and rather than dwelling on them, I am choosin to be grateful for all the beautiful blessing that I have. Which turns out to be a lot. Simply breathing in fresh air and exhaling all the worries expectations and pains, I feel a million times better!
There was a beautiful prayer request answered today, so thank God for that.
Here's to me- to all of us striving every day to be a better parent, spouse, daughter, friend, and Christian. And remembering we never have to be perfect. Because God judges our heart. And after all, He is what truly matters in the end. Every second is a chance to start new :)

Setting goals has helped me out a lot as well. Confidence and joy soar when I make those goals and now that I am remembering to forgive myself when I do not make those goals right away, I feel much lighter.
So much lighter.

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
