It has been too long since the last time I did a “Transform Your Life Post.” I think I just needed a little break to generate some new ideas and more creativity.
July was a decent month, but August has been much better. The weather has still been warm, but not scorchingly hot. Last month, I made a commitment to blog everyday and I successfully followed through with that commitment. It was so empowering to know that I have it in me to follow through.
This month I have committed to blogging everyday and also working out everyday. I thought this would be more challenging because I spent months feeling lazy and unmotivated. Working out consistently has boosted my energy and helped me to feel more creative.
Additionally I have set a date to begin Brightline Eating. I finally completed the getting started checklist!!! The next biggest challenge will be getting started…
This past week was my sister’s 19th birthday and I felt so heart broken about the fact that I didn’t get to see her and wish her happy birthday. I sure miss her.
On her birthday we went Blueberry picking and that definitely helped to cheer me up ❤
Now back to brightline eating… Initially, I wanted to start the program on my sister’s birthday to honor her, but I have since decided that I will begin on August 27,2017. That is the day after my birthday. I chose that day because I was worried that I would feel deprived if I put any dietary restrictions on myself before my birthday and rather than sticking with it I would just be setting myself up for failure so that is my realistic start date.
That will give me ample time to get mentally and physically prepared for those healthy changes in my life. This time I will commit, follow through, and ultimately succeed. I have my mind and heart set on it!!!
I also love the month of August for the fact that it is my birthday month! I mean, who honestly, doesn’t love their birthday month?!?! The only problem is that I still have this fear of growing older… I am turning 29 in 10 days and sometimes it gets me down because I haven’t fully discovered what my purpose in life is, yet. I am just going to keep on bettering myself and moving forward.
What were some other highlights of the past two weeks?! Well, my bf created an automated sprinkler system which is super convenient when you want to water your lawn without stepping foot outdoors. My Grandma Alice came to visit. My sister turned 19. Oh and we sold our motorhome and our Cadillac.
The motorhome was pretty amazing and was probably the coolest Christmas gift I have ever gotten, but we have been too busy to travel around and I am glad that we sold it to a family that can enjoy it and make use of it. It is a shame to let such a beauty just sit. So we let her go ❤
I think that the Cadillac was harder for us to let go of, but I am glad that it is in great hands and we got a good price for it. We had payed it off and my car is also currently paid off. So we let it go and have more money in the bank!
I think as a whole we want to simplify our lives and letting go of some possessions is part of the process.
- Quit nagging.
- Cultivate healthy relationships.
- No Dumping.
- Give proofs of love.
I feel like I am doing a good job with my areas of focus for this month. Last month I was feeling a little uneasy and insecure about myself, but this month I have been actively working on building my confidence by working out and being more positive. It really makes a difference and makes it possible for me to love others too.
What are your goals for this month? Please comment below to share!!!
Love, Joy, and Blessings always,
