Happy Monday!

Monday is winding down and I am pretty tired. My friend Jennifer used to engage in this blog called A Thing A Day, which is a crafty thing and I want to get involved in something similar minus the crafts. So my 'thing a day' for today was to take a sculpting class. Each day I want to do something different. It can be as easy as listening to new music, say hi to someone I have never met, wear perfume to the gym....whatever would be different than what I normally do. Changes are good. And they create the person we want to evolve into. We have to explore the unknown and take chances.

The sculpt class was tough. It is a lot of slow movements with weights using your core to center and balance yourself. The instructor KC said I did really well for my first time. All I could say was, "My a$$ cheeks are BURNING!" LOL! It gave her a good laugh. I will continue to take this class on Monday afternoons knowing my goal is a bikini for this summer. ( :

I also said hi to someone today that is always at the gym. They never seem to make eye contact with me. Today, I was not going allow them to pass by without a hello. When people see me I want them to know that I am not shy, in no way snobby, and I am people person who cares deeply for others. I love life and really want to share my happiness with the world.

The next "new" thing I did today was look up Life Coaching. Never did I think it was a career. If it is written in the stars I am hoping to check out online schooling to get a certificate in life coaching. I would love to spread the positivity to the world.

Although life has thrown me some major curve balls and I have allowed my son to take I have decided to take my life back. I made a decision this morning after a long prayer that I was not going to allow his stress to consume me any longer. You know what happened? He went into school by himself without any problems. Today, he played outside, voluntarily cleaned out the rabbit cage, and is now back to playing video games with Jeremy. It has been about two months since he has done much of anything. Now whether or not he stays this way, we shall see. All I know is that this is my life and no matter what goes on around me, no matter who is miserable, I have to do whatever it takes to be happy. My children will bask in my happiness and it will just spread like wild fire.

My advice to anyone who feels stuck in their current can change it. But you have to start with YOU. I cannot change my son or the people around me but I can change how I deal with them. Try new things, step out of your box (even if it makes your butt hurt). Put on some happy music to drown out the sorrows. You only have one chance at life. Live it. Oh, and before I forget, stop trying to live everyone elses for them, be non-judgmental, and concentrate on you. We do not know the chosen paths for others.....we do not have to agree with their choices but we do have to let them be.
