“Walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.”

Hello Word Press Family 🤗 Im back after a very long extended break!

I had a lot of soul searching to do. 2017 was an incredibly tumultuous year for me & before the year ended I made a decision to take care of me first. I am of no use to anyone else if I’m not ok.

I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions..not anymore. I always break them before January is even over so I decided to make small changes with myself. I started those changes mid December. I started getting rid of “clutter”.

“Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits. Clutter is anything that doesn’t support your better self.”

I started cutting back on my social media presence, changed my diet & removed myself from toxic relationships/ friendships. This all happened in December. January came & I was already in motion. I felt stronger & more prepared because I was already in the midst of my personal changes.

I went back to my old love…daily hiking! I’m reading again, I’m halfway thru a book I got for Christmas and I’m making small daily goals and accomplishing them. I have to make a note for myself every evening of what I want to accomplish the next day and I stick to those short term goals. I feel great when I get these things accomplished.

I want to live more in the present, not only for my loved ones but mostly for myself. Being glued to my phone 3 hrs a day commenting on people’s posts & responding will not help me achieve my greater self. That’s 3 hours of my daily life I will never get back & I will never let that happen again.

I want to do more things I enjoy like hiking, reading, writing & traveling. I want to live each day more fruitfully. I want to make the most out of each day on MY TERMS cause memories are not made by clicking the keyboard. 😉

A negative mind will never give you a positive life. I decided to turn my sons death into a positive movement because I cannot allow his death to be in vain. I figured instead of being angry at life and the world (which was getting me nowhere) I’d start helping those less fortunate and help spread my sons message which is “take better care of yourself” I will happily share my journey here. 🤗❤️

  1. Awesome. I am very happy for the happier, healthier you. I have had to do the same de-cluttering. I feel more free, and more like me. Wishing you peace and strength.
