You Can

You Can…

You can are two words I have to remind myself of a lot. Facebook reminded me this week, that 3 years ago I started this Journey again. I did well, losing 40lb. Then I had foot surgery and just never got back into the groove.

But here I am today, I got up when my alarm went off, dress and went for walk. It wasn’t a big walk, 30 mins, 1.7 miles, but I could and I did. My life in my head is utter chaos at the moment.

Organize my brain

I am trying very hard to restructure what is going on in there. Imagine just having tons of colors (which are ideas) popping up like fireworks and they are all over the place and it never stops. That’s my brain. So I am working on figuring out how to make it more look like an old-school library catalog.

I have a task list on google, I have a daily planner for my To-do’s, a personal health planner and a small planner that goes with me. When I got out of a very toxic friendship 6 years ago, my brain was messed up. I was on anti-depressants, in therapy and riddled with anxiety. I am good at hiding those things.

What changed?

I have a beautiful family, my husband is my rock, he is there for me no matter what. He is my voice of reasoning and goodness he is a saint when it comes to patience. My kids have been my driving force. I have been functioning, but it’s time to start living again. The magnesium for depression and it seems to help a lot. I also learned how to say “no” which is a very important word.

My goals are:

  • Enjoy my family
  • be healthy
  • be better organized in my business
  • enjoy my friends
  • live my life

So here I am on November 5th, knowing that I CAN.
