When I first started my blog I wanted to complain about having a type 1 diabetic and celiac son. I wanted to complain about being a mom and a wife. And then I just wanted to complain period.
Then later I thought I could do something towards health or something of the other and I had a million things I wanted it to be about but I could never quite feel it and get in my groove.
With so much complaining, all I wanted was it to be something of an outlet but not an outlet that was me whining, having a pity party, day in and day out.
One night as I lay in bed trying to figure out what I was wanting in life, I heard These words “choose today”. I was tired of being negative and whining . It wasn’t getting me anywhere, which came about my thoughts on how I would CHOOSE today.
I thought, I can choose today to be so much more.
To make a difference. To be who God wants me to be. To be who I want to be. Though I struggle and it’s hard, I still get to make that choice.
As I have been in the process of changing my thoughts and my perception, I have really been trying to figure out what I want and how I want to portray who I am. I had this thought in my mind but I couldn’t see it clearly, It kept changing. I kept growing.
Today my blog is about inspiration.
It’s about being a mom and a wife.
It’s about the ups and the downs and all the in between.
It’s about making dreams with my husband and seeing sometimes that the other ones may go away.
It’s about stepping out and owning a business while trying to raise our kids and do so much we never thought was possible by just having a little faith.
It’s about sharing my love of adventure and travel and photography and all the little things that make life seem so special and to create memories.
It’s about not always getting it right but sharing that it’s ok to be down, it’s ok to be up, its ok to enjoy all the little moments.
It’s about showing my kids how to keep hanging on when the going gets tough and to come out stronger in the end.
It’s about teaching them to be so much more than they could ever see possible and for us to be so much more than we thought we ever could.
It’s about creating the moments that make up our life and that we get to choose how we react in those moments, good and bad.
Each day is a new day.
I get to choose how I want to make it.
It may take time to break the bad habits and to get where your goal is but each moment adds up to bigger moments until you have finally reached your goal and then you are ready to make a new one.
It’s about making those moments exciting and finding the laughter when all we may seem to find is sadness. It’s about sharing my story so I can hopefully inspire someone else to share their story and we can all create a bright shining light and help others to see their life is worth living.
It’s worth thriving!
It’s worth making all your moments count. It’s about not taking anything for granted. It’s about being thankful for all things- every little moment!
And so here it is, where I want to share with you how to, choose this moment, today, even when sometimes we don’t feel like it.
It is not possible for it to always be perfect or for us to always be happy. We are going to have down days and bad things that may happen but if we can choose how to grow in those moments and be grateful.
If we could share our story to help someone else who may feel all alone and let them know, hey you are not alone in this. You got this. You can make it through that trial. You can make it through today.
All you have to do is choose today, choose this moment right now and I promise it will all be worth it!
Be a Shining Light for all to see!!
