Just typing ‘New Beginnings’ caused a few tears. Man, the past few years have been overwhelming, difficult, tearful, great, depressing, amazing and rewarding. There have been so many changes. For one, I went through a divorce in 2013 and I also met my now husband, James. There have been so many new beginnings: healing from a divorce, a new relationship and a marriage.
For my husband, his new beginning came after his open heart surgery. I can’t begin to explain the difference the surgery has made on his life – it’s almost like night and day. James has always had a GREAT sense of humor and that has not changed one bit, but his energy has increased so much. I am so proud of him. He has started working out this week and he has been so committed and devoted to regaining a healthier life. He has truly been an inspiration. He just keeps on ‘ticking.’ Ha – he has a mechanical valve, which causes a ticking sound when his heart beats.
For me, my new beginning came just this year. And with the help of a friend, I have forgiven myself. Actually, this year, I have tried to forgive myself and others for all sorts of various reasons. I am so tired of being mad, angry and depressed…I want to be happy, positive and most of all, I want to enjoy life with my family and friends. With this new year of making all things positive, comes letting go of feeling sorry for myself.
I urge you to try and make your life more positive. Let go of the anger. Stop holding onto grudges and just simply let go. Your soul will thank you.
As far as working out this week, I completed an entire week at CrossFit. Woop – go me!
