i believe in positivity & tend to look on the brighter side of things. until our big move, i have been a cup half full kind of person. this year, i want to get back into that old groove of seeking joy & claiming it as my own. that's what my newest project, print:: is all about. i also want to share it with you. so- here are some positive changes in my life. maybe they'll inspire you... it is the little things, right?
:: eating well & losing weight. i wasn't sure if i wanted to share this part of my life with you because it is such a hard topic for me, but these last several weeks have made such an impact on my life in such a good way. right now i am participating in the six sisters' get healthy challenge with my close friend, mother-in-law & sister-in-law. i am a believer! weight has always, always been an issue for me, but it is so much easier to stay healthy within a community. for the most part, luke & i eat within the seasons & have an overall healthy diet. i have noticed throughout this challenge, though, that i used to rely on high carb foods & sweets as easy go-to snacks. i have eliminated most carbs & sweets from my diet, avoided dairy products, & lost ten pounds! it feels so good to be exercising regularly, eating well, drinking water & openly communicating with girlfriends. love it.
:: weekly chores. once i read all of your cleaning & organizational tips, i knew i needed to get to work. i have created a weekly chore list that helps me get through the week. before preparing dinner, i try to complete the work that needs to be done for the day. it usually only takes thirty minutes or so & it makes such a difference. i have completed one week of this new routine & i already feel much better.
:: loving fully. it is so easy to not love. i confess that i sink into those patterns of blaming & pointing fingers with very little effort. & that just isn't fair for the man of my heart. i am so thankful for our partnership & commitment to one another. i am making every effort to forgive more, cuddle more & love fully. it makes life so much richer.
cheers to positivity!
