Have You Been Encouraging Negative Feelings and Emotions in Your Life?

This is a tough question. One that I have been trying to answer these past few months. I haven’t been keeping up with blogging or jogging…

These past few months, however, have been quite a crazy ride for me on multiple levels: physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It’s been such a crazy experience… That it almost feels like I’ve grown tremendously within the last six months (if that), MORE than in the last ten years … and then some.

These past six months have been a total eye opener, smack in the face, kick in the seam of the pants, {INSERT YOUR OWN CLEVER PHRASE HERE}. I have been through a lot. I have seen a lot. I have doubted a lot. I have trusted a lot. And I have gotten hurt, bad and often. I have struggled, cried, laughed, ached, panicked, anticipated, moped, slacked, and everything in between. I am done with it all. I am done with the pity party. I am DONE!

Now, I am picking myself up, dusting myself off, collecting my baggage in a dust pan with a handle brush and chucking it in the trash can of excuses. I am not letting this crap get in the way of my life, my happiness, my future, and my success and my health. Nothing is worth feeling like crap. Nothing is worth feeling hurt, worthless, small and insignificant!

I don’t know what you believe in, whether it be God or Buddha or The Flying Spaghetti Monster, but I believe in God. He loves me unconditionally, and I have been returning His love with treating my body, His temple, like crap. How ridiculous is THAT!?

Today is a new day! Six months ago, I started, slowly, on this journey. But today, I am making it known! Today, I am making it public. Today, I have given you (all, five of you… Haha, I don’t know how many people will ever actually read this…) a part in my success—accountability. You don’t even have to do anything. Just be there, read, and wait. You may want to offer words of encouragement, by all means, do so. You might even want to call me a loser or an idiot or a strange rantess of common babble, do it. Anything that makes your day, do it. I just hope it’s not trying to make mine insignificant, because then that means you need to make your own New Start/Beginning for a Journey to a New You.

Have I inspired you yet?
