I’m baaack! I must admit, I was pretty shocked when I noticed how long it had been since I lasted posted. I convinced myself that I did not have time and did not need to write in my blog. It is amazing how if we tell ourselves something enough times, we will really start to believe it. A phrase I have seen many times states that “we become what we think about”. Our attitude really does make our world. It can make or break our day.
I have recently joined the gym after wanting to go back for several years. It was humbling after my first workout. I ended up very sore and tired. With anything new, it’s easy to fall prey to fearful thoughts. I payed for an entire year up front and I have asked myself several times if that was a mistake. I have been in the same routine for so long that it has become a rut. I spent so many days at a time at home caregiving, cleaning etc. that when I actually did get out, I was a little shocked.
The truth is, I need the exercise, we all do. It keeps us strong and less prone to injury and combats depression and anxiety. I know it will improve my life so long as I keep on keeping on! As I continue on this journey, doors will open, opportunities will present themselves and the walls I have built up will begin to fall.
Hi! I’m Lisa! I am a mother, wife, daughter, caregiver and friend. These roles I put myself into are good and rewarding, but the most important role is to be me. Creating this blog is just the beginning and I look forward to sharing it with you! To be honest, this is the second running of a blog that only lasted a couple of days. Why? Because I convinced myself that I do not have time for this. What is that phrase? Something about needing to make the time? Truth is, I was making excuses for not taking care of myself, which is easy to do, especially in my role as a caregiver to my two awesome sons! Will I not be a better caregiver and set a good example for others, offering inspiration, by simply diving on in and not looking back?
I have often told myself that I cannot make a difference because I am home so much. This is simply not true. Do we not make a difference by being all we can be, all God created us to be? Do we not make a difference by serving with our hearts on fire and loving others?
Like everyone else, I have dreams. Dreams of running marathons, writing books and doing something really big. This is a good thing but I have let it make me lose sight of who I can be today, right now. Bloom where I am planted. The road I am on may eventually meet up with the road where these big dreams are the destination, but if not, that is okay too.
For those of you that read my short lived blog, thank you and bless you. And for the rest, God bless you and I am excited to walk this path with you!
