Where Do I Begin?

Seriously?!  It's September?  That doesn't seem right.  It should be, like, March.  I've gone through many changes this year - so many that I hardly know where to begin.  I've had a change of mind, a change of heart and a change of plans.  Things are different now - some are better, some are not, and some are just different in a ways I can't articulate.  But I do know that everything will eventually be all right again.  This is just one chapter coming to a close.  That's the only way the next one can open.

With all of these changes in my life happening at the same time, I'm taking this time to reinvent myself.  This is my time to re-evaluate and detox.  It's something that I've needed to do for a while but I kept putting off.  It's time.

It's time to cleanse and cut through the crap - that includes cleaning out my closet, redecorating my room, clearing my schedule, wearing less makeup (something that feels so freeing), wearing what I feel good in, getting back in shape, eating right and filling my life with positive energy.

So without further adieu - here are some things that are motivating me towards making that positive change.

 I love this photo that I took of my mom going for a walk last fall...

Eating healthy -

tofu and stir-fried veggies over rice - yummy!

Have you read Wild by Cheryl Strayed?  My mom recommended it to me and I'm about to start it.  It's a book about reinvention and going through the process of healing - just what I need to read right now.

My life is definitely different now, but different isn't necessarily a bad thing.  I'm going to do my best to accept whatever comes next and remember that my past is simply that: past.

time to move forward with a smile :)
