ONE Simple QuestionDec 19, 2018
8 years separate these 2 pictures, and the transformation you can't see is the one I'm most proud of.
There's a 70 pound difference between the two pictures. Back then I didn't know what self care was. I fondly remember sitting on the couch at 3pm still in my pink robe, un showered, unshaven, and crying because I had no time.
4 months after this picture was taken I become a single mother and was in my doctors appointment getting anti-depressants and sleeping medication because of "situational" depression. I took a stress leave from work.. Not my first one either. I took two.
LIFE. Knocking me down. Stress. Chaos. Single Parenting. Financial Trouble. Trauma.
You see... it took me nearly 4 MORE years after this to make a change. TO get serious enough to realize that my life and circumstances weren't going to improve unless I started getting VERY serious about the direction of my life, my health, and what I wanted it to look like.
I speak to women on the daily. Burnt out. Exhausted. Stress. Depressed. Overweight. Miserable, and while I can DEEPLY sympathize with LIFE.. and STRESS, I also know this:
One day you will simply look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself ONE simple question.
What was my life going to look like if I remained on the same path as I'm on right now? What would it look like if I didn't make a change. If I continue to still stay stuck in the past and playing the victim.
For me.. I didn't like that answer, so I got VERY FOCUSED on spending all my time BUILDING the NEW, and I'm so not the same person I was 8 years ago.
Will it be easy to change your life? Nope... but chances are it's a hell of a lot easier than staying stuck somewhere you don't belong.
You got this girl. One day at a time. Trust me when I say, spending 30 minutes on myself every morning change my life... Making time for self care.. proper nutrition...
The secret to success is actually pretty easy, but it's also super easy not to do too. ;)
