I don't usually do a Throwback Thursday photo, but I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my life, the choices I was making previously and the changes I am making to get to where I want to be. This photo was taken 3 years ago, when I was really struggling with my energy level, keeping up with the kids and was really unhappy with things physically and mentally. I have made a lot of progress since then, especially this past summer - getting more active, focusing on my goals, taking time to figure out where I want to be and who I want to be. It's not an easy process to look at yourself and realize that you need to make changes in yourself in order to reach your goals, it is so much easier to look outwardly at others around you.
Once I took the time to reflect, I realized I am the one that will make me happy. Once I do that and start to make changes for myself, then I will be happier with everything else in my life.
