Celebrating a New Me for Christmas
Friday, December 25, 2009
There is no way to express the overwhelming joy I have in my heart this year during the holiday season. Usually the holidays leave me feeling melancholy and even a little depressed. I usually struggle through all the events and preparations trying to 'make' it joyful.
This past year I have been so blessed. The process has not been easy and was far from joyful. At times it was down right painful to work through some of the mental and emotional layers that I had allowed to keep me in bondage. As I challenged myself to work through those layers, I discovered a new inner strength that I didn't know I possessed. I discovered my inner warrior. The warrior that defines what is worth fighting for and aggressively goes after it.
Knowing that I can handle struggles without binging or other forms of self loathing, makes me feel powerful. I love that I can nourish and care for myself in a way that allows the true me to radiate out to those around me. This transformation started on the inside, in my heart and in the attitude of my mind as I addressed areas of pain and sorrow. The results have been a revealing of the woman I was created to be.
I'm not at my physical weight goal, but I am the woman I want to be be and that is beautiful.
