Embracing A Change In Life

Embracing A Change In Life

All throughout life, you’re going to experience change. Whether we want it or not, it’s going to happen. Many people have heard of the saying “Change is good”. In some cases, it could be. In others, I just don’t see it happening. Good changes for me were to: exercise more, try to eat right….TRY lol, focus more on me and I need and want, and pick family and friends that I know I can depend on no matter what. Bad changes would be in the future: being about to rely on a man without feeling he’s going to leave or not support me, pretty much being able to rely on anybody without feeling neglect.

Growing up, I use to love being active. I love being outdoors, playing around, and just having fun without realizing you working out your muscles and being healthy. I’m 31 now; exercise is a challenge for me. After I get through working cleaning up the house, I do not want to exercise.

Plus, I do not want to get up early than I can to get up and work out. With people close to me either sick or just passed away, I want to do everything I can to be healthy and active. I want to live to be 100. I think I can do it. My grandmother is 94. It’s definitely in the bloodline if I get to move. I started out slow; and now, I work out 4 times a week. YAY me!

I love to eat! That is one of my favorite things to do. Just writing about it, I get very happy. When I used to be younger, I use to eat anything and everything. I didn’t have a limit. I said I’m 31 now, I can’t eat like I used to. It will definitely catch up to you quickly…I know this first hand. In order to maintain good health, I take vitamins. Also, I make smoothies that have fruit and vegetables in it.

I still eat what I want. I just do it in moderation. What I wanted and needed became very important when I got tired of giving my all to people; and, I wasn’t getting anything in return. For us that are natural givers, you will get to a point where you’re tired of giving but you not getting anything in return. I know I did. I made a lot of people mad at me too. I didn’t care. I wanted my peace and happiness.

If I allow someone to take advantage of me in any way, without giving back to me, I turn into a nasty person. I know a lot of people have cut me off or I cut them off, but at the end of the day neared, I knew I’m happy. What about you? That’s why I have a small circle family and friends that I know are my rock. For the rest of y’all, it’s whatever I feel like on that day.

I have a hard time relying on people. My patience gets real short when I ask something that I know I can’t do myself…which is rare…you say you’re going to do it but you eventually don’t do it. I can’t stand that. If say you’re going to do something, just do it. If you don’t want to do it, just say you’re not.

My feelings are not going to be hurt if you tell me the truth. This is an area I been working on for years. I still have to do it myself in the end. But I like doing things for myself, although sometimes it would be good to get help. Maybe I’ll get that one-day …we’ll see.
