CHANGE YOUR HEART…CHANGE YOUR MIND…CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

After many struggles, tears, sadness and determination;

a willingness to work hard to make my life better;

AND A HUGE CHANGE INSIDE OF MY MIND AND MY HEART,

I have reached a milestone that I am DAMN proud of!

i am happy

I love the inside AND the outside of me!

Yes!  It’s true!

We all carry baggage from the past that can make us mentally, emotionally, and, ultimately, physically disabled.   However, I have learned that making a change in what you say to yourself about the way you look AND by opening up your heart to others you can change the way you feel about LIFE.

The first step that I took to lead myself in the right direction was simple.  I started smiling in the car while I was driving.  I’m sure I looked like an idiot to other drivers that noticed I was alone, but smiling has a positive impact on the way you start your day.  And then, while I was smiling, I began thinking positive thoughts.  A huge one for me was “I deserve to live a happy life”.  Some other good ones I have used are “I am a thin person”; “I will find blessings everywhere”; and  “Keep your head up and your heart open”.  Eventually, over time, you start believing what you are saying to yourself and it changes the way you treat yourself and others.  My mantras led me to believe that I am healthy, thin, and happy.  And guess what?  It happened!   The absolute best part about changing the way you feel is that it opens up your heart and that love radiates to others.  You can impact other people by loving and accepting yourself!

Today I bought my first size 6 pants and a smaller bra (not saying what size!!).

I feel loving and giving and HAPPY and I think that other people sense that in me.

If I can do it, you can too….. BECAUSE:

you are worth it
