Peace has been made with fellow small town community members, there may still be whispers, but then again, that's life. I've made peace with the people that I called "friend" at one time in my life and I think it's good enough on BOTH sides to help us all move forward and heal. I'm learning to find "myself" again, without all the spiritual talk, without all the false, I love you's. Six years of investing my family, our lives, and time into a church family gave a lot to us in many ways. I try to live my life without regret. There will ALWAYS be something or someone to knock you down to your knees. Life isn't perfect, we don't make perfect decisions, but what it really comes down to is HOW exactly we pick ourselves up and move on.
I read this on Elephant Journal this morning after a friend posted it and I sat here with chills, smiling....knowing in my heart that while this season of life has been H-A-R-D for me, I've actually been letting GO. I'm on the road to freedom......
"Letting Go" is very simple, it's just a decision YOU have to make.

So,I "pinned" this idea and was SO excited to do it for the kids!! I have really learned over the past couple of years what my limits are and decided to do 14 days of LOVE instead of the entire month to make sure I could be consistent! They LOVED it! I bought heart doilies at Dollar Tree to make our even easier! :)

One of my favorite things she said was,
No one tells you how much you’ll love it, and how you’ll sacrifice time and shoe money for a microscope, snap circuits, and art classes.
This is week 3 of hitting the gym 5 days a week and THAT is success for me! I started this year off back at the better nutrition, physical activity and spiritual focus that works for ME, in THIS season of my life. I do miss group runs at times (though, not in this freaking cold weather), but I have my #1 supporter by my side, the one that has always been my constant.....my hubby! I have an almost 11 year old daughter that wants to join my at the Y. All three kids love coming with me, no complaints so we are doing what works for us as a family.
Today gave me some great perspective!
