Just Give Me a Reason

I know it's been out for awhile, but I have got to say I LOVE that Pink and Fun song: Just Give Me a Reason.  Chris and I have had some pretty dark times in our marriage (early years), I really like how this song encourages holding on to even the littlest piece of hope.  I couldn't imagine my life if I had given in during our difficult times, but instead we're stronger and happier than ever before.  And I hope I'll remember this when we enter our next dark time and the next after that, and we'll come out even stronger!  Anyways this song speaks to me..

New Journey

These last couple years I have grown so much as a person.  I've set goals and reached them.  I feel really good about my spiritual and mental heath (besides anxiety).  This blog as kind of been dedicated to those goals these last couple years, but now I'm ready to add a new subject.  I feel like I'm a great wife and mother, I'm happier than I've ever been, and completely drug-free, I'm motivated and on a great schedule (I still need to work on this when Chris is out of town), I've turned into a back to the basics, natural, crunchy-ish mom.  My house is clean 99% of the time (Probably more like 80%.)  I've basically made a 180 from where I was a couple years ago.  But now it's time to push more and keep growing.  I have been procrastinating on my physical health, because I dislike exercise, and I love eating junk.  But it's time.  I need my physical health to be up to par with my mental and spiritual health.  I've started changing how I eat.  I'm not on a diet, but I'm trying to stay away from processed food (or anything that hasn't been around for atleast a century), most dairy, super fatty meats, the only bread I eat is organic wheat bread, and I eat lots of organic fruits/veggies and nuts/seeds.  Like I said, I'm not on a diet, and I definitely don't plan on counting calories.  I just want to be healthy, not skinny.  I'm also hoping that this way of eating will help with my anxiety and energy.  I'm really giving juicing a shot, not a huge fan so far, but I'll find some yummy recipes as I play around. :)  I'm excited to take this new journey to becoming a better person inside and out. :)  Shout out to my Momma and Amy Flynn (one of my very bestfriends) for motivating me!!

This week I'll blog my health goals. :)

Austin Dream

Last night I had a dream and Aus was in it.  I can't remember the specific, but he was definitely in them. This is significant, because he hasn't been in my dreams since he passed away, it like I couldn't handle them or my mind blocked them or something.  But I'm so glad I had this dream, I've been praying for an Austin dream for awhile, and I'm glad I got one even if I don't remember it.  Atleast now I CAN have Aus dreams!  That makes me so happy!
