It's hard to see people we love in rough situations. Being apart of the solution may seem like helping, but is it really? You can't help someone who doesn't want to help themselves. Listening, caring, and asking thoughtful questions shows that you care. You can't control others behavior, or let it effect you so deeply. I struggled with this last night. I cried myself into a headache. The only time I get headaches is due to stress. My body is physically telling me "no more". One of the major reasons for my self awareness, self love, and positivity journey was my headaches.
So what can you do about being around negative situations? It's not nice to avoid people because their in a bad mood. However there is nothing wrong with it. If someone is constantly in a bad mood that you are around, you have a choice to either stand by them or not too. A quick way to find out who you really care about. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you care or love someone. No one has the power to change another human being. Think about how hard it can be to change yourself. It takes work, constant effort, trial and error. If its hard to change yourself, how can you change something you have no control of. Let it go.
Today I ran until my mind was clear. I got on the treadmill and just ran. Something I plan on doing quite frequently. It helps that my amazing mother in law has a full gym in her house. So on the days that I go up there, after work, I plan on running. As long as its something that I feel would make me feel better. The truth the hardest part of exercising is getting motivated. I haven't been paying attention to my weight. I have just been loving myself the way I am. However over the last four months with diet change, daily exercise, and after not being pregnant for a full year I was curious. I stepped on the scale and in the last four months ive lost 35 pounds. I was proud of myself. Inside and out I am proud of myself. I am at my lowest weight in 3 years. I feel amazing. I am only at the beginning of my journey but over the last four months I've slowly been improving myself, and without rediculas expectations. Now I have a set goal in mind as far as achievements. Weight isn't one of them. However finding myself by putting in an honest effort for myself is.
The world of exercise is unlimited. There are so many different techniques and styles. I personally have found a hidden interest in yoga. I found a Hot yoga, Pilates, and cycling class near my councilors office. I'm so excited to try it out. Being in an environment with other positive women looking to better themselves is a great chance to build some real friendships. Quality vs. Quantity. So happy exercising and I wish everyone good luck on their way to a healthier lifestyle.

This page is to bring you along my journey to find positivity and harmony. Its started as a 30 day challenge to learn more about ones self and how to truly take care of yourself. To take care of others, you have to be able to take care of yourself. Instead of a 30 day challenge I'm turning this into a year of positivity and the journey we venture to find what truly matters in this world. It is important as a mother to show children positivity can be found everywhere and anywhere. It starts with right now, and right here!
