Positive Affirmations


Hey everyone :) I'm easing back into the blogging life after my hiatus. The time off was desperately needed, and I'm in a really good place right now :) More to come on that later ...

I wanted to share the following positive affirmation ...

What is Life but an opportunity to wake up, open up, stand up and BE YOURSELF!! It takes the courage of a Hero to be who you are! This is YOUR life to live, not someone elses! BE BRAVE!

I don't know how to describe the feeling I get when I say this out loud to myself. While on hiatus, I realized I had fallen astray, and really wasn't focusing on the things that were important. I realized I had fallen into my old habits of trying to be something for everyone, and not saving enough of me for me. As much as I love helping people, and giving encouragement and motivation to others, I think I gave too much, and stretched myself too thin. It was wrong for me to just shut down the way I did and leave people hanging, but it was almost a case of going cold turkey for a while, and just taking care of me.

I'm excited for the future, and appreciate all of your support and emails during my hiatus. You have no idea how much it meant to me! :)

My plan is to have this blog back up to "normal" on December 28th, but will be blogging here and there until then. I hope all of you are doing well, and can't wait to catch up with you!

xo,

P.S. "Going astray" does not mean I fell off the wagon and binged myself into a food coma. I did lose a few lbs, and am ready to get back into the swing of things!

Welcome back! I missed you but I can understand that you needed time for yourself. If we don't look after ourselves how can we look after anyone else.

Glad to have you back.
