I woke up today feeling like Bruce Lee! I am ready to power kick and jab my way through life. I have been idle for too long, and I am taking back control today. You see I have the tendency to over think situations, and I do it until I talk myself right out of a good idea. I have literally done that ever since I had children. I feel so guilty if I want to proceed at something new in life because I think about how this unique opportunity will take away from them. I try to be everything that I needed when I was a child, and I have to admit it becomes a little overwhelming. But that’s okay because I only have a short season with them and then they will be grown and starting their own life and creating memories with their families. So in the meantime and between the time I have found the perfect balance.
HOW DO YOU FIND BALANCE
You can find balance by giving yourself permission to create opportunities for you. Step back from your kids and husband for a moment and allow yourself to plan for your own growth. As a mom, I spend entirely too much time on making sure everyone in my household has what they need. It’s almost an obsessive behavior and a bit unhealthy for me. The last thing I want to do is look back on my life when I’m older and have regrets. I fear that my regrets will turn into anger and then animosity. That is the last thing that I want. So last night before bed, I had a long conversation with God, asking him to cover my decisions and give me the strength to take a significant step in my life.
Health and fitness have been a part of my life for so long, and I am ready to upgrade to the next level and kick excuses in the throat.
