For the last 6 years I've been on a journey. A journey on becoming the best me possible and during this journey I continue to learn a lot about myself and others. My outlook on certain situations continue to change as my mind continues to grow. When I started my journey I was just looking to help others as I helped myself. I wanted to share what I've learned, because I was hurting and I knew there was millions of other women going through what I was going through too. My life became an open book and although I was becoming successful at what I was trying to accomplish in life. I was at square one again. Losing myself doing something I loved. As crazy as it may sound, you can lose yourself in your passion if you don't have some type of balance.
Now, I don't believe we can ever totally master each and every part of our lives, but we can become good at trying to. I strongly believe that the biggest part of "Controlling your life" is becoming "Accepting" of it. We have to become accepting of each and every area of our life. We have to accept that we can't make others think the way we think (and we shouldn't try). We have to accept where we are and own it to get up out of it. I remember seeing myself on Dr. Oz and wanting to cry my brains out, because my reality was staring me in the face. I had gained an overwhelmingly amount of weight and although I knew it, I was comfortable with it. Well, not really. But if I wasn't comfortable with it I would have accepted, owned it and took the necessary steps to change it a long time ago. To make a long story short after my pity party for one. I decided to make a change in this area of my life. I started out doing everything the wrong way, with pills and diets and gained every ounce back and then some. Eventually, I took time out to study my body and read books on health and nutrition and figured out what works for me.
I had to put in the work, but first I had to "accept" that this was my life and I created this problem and then I had to "accept" that I had some changes to make and accept the responsibility of doing so.
