How did we get here?

How did we get here?

Welcome to my new site and blog.  I've been putting it off for so long.. I can't believe I'm finally here.  Where exactly is here you might ask?   Here is a space where I start to journal my dedication to living more abundantly.  Abundance for me isn't necessarily about material things.  Its about happiness.  It's about embracing self-care and making conscious healthy decisions pertaining to your mental and physical health.  Practicing things that genuinely make you content.  It's about realizing that no matter what age you may be, you may just now be learning how to commit to these things.  And that's OK.  As women, we often deny ourselves proper self-care.  We put others needs before our own; our children, our spouses, etc.  When we finally get around to taking care of our needs, we're run down, and possibly bitter because we didn't do the things we wanted to do.  We put so much guilt on ourselves about self-care.   I'm very guilty of this.  Saying no to things that I want and having an excuse for why I shouldn't do it.  "I don't have time to meditate and journal."  "I don't have time to exercise."   "I can't go on this trip by myself."  Doing things by myself is a major one!  I'm social, but slightly introverted, LOL,  so stepping out of my comfort zone is one of the most beneficial things I could do.  There is no sense in denying myself things that will ultimately make me a better person and will set a good example for my daughter and other young women.  So this blog is a journal of my commitment to "say yes" to myself and live in the present because life is truly too short.  

Be positive. Love Life.  Live Abundantly
