My desire for a new way of living part 1
Now as I was nearing my 46thbirthday I began thinking about how I was going to spend the next half of my life. I was tired of just living the life of an abuse victim/ survivor , not finding strength to do what I really wanted to do- which was to get and stay healthy, body mind and soul. Just from my past personal experience I knew that it was going to be a lot of hard work on my part. And I'll to admit I was skeptical and a bit scared. After all if I was serious about changing it was something I would have to work on every single day from now on.
Now in order to be successful I had to remember two things; 1) this wasn't my past where every time something good came into my life someone was there to take it away or destroy it and 2) I was going to have to be serious about changing and realize I AM God's child.
But that also meant I would have to stop being in control and turn my life back over to my heavenly Father who created me in the first place. So with those things reveled I had to ask myself two very important questions."Was I ready to do the work it would take to get back on my feet, and two was I ready to get rid of the negative self talk and lifestyle I was now living?"
The answer was a loud resounding YES.
Stay turned for part two
