Now Playing: Day 2747-Next GP Chapter... Turning Lemons Into Lemonade :)
Change is inevitable
Today I have taken another monumental step in the process of change. Becoming a better me! Perfect? No one is perfect. We all have our own set of imperfect flaws. Far from perfect decisions. What we don't need is to live in the past. A past filled with right, wrong, good and sometimes even bad choices.
With change comes personal growth. Learning lessons from the past and applying them to the here and now. Towards the future. Who doesn't absolutely LOVE a great ending?! The ability to self-reflect by continuing to choose the road to happiness.
I have an amazing therapist whom has also directed me to her friend who is a life coach. The reason? Why of course...To become the BEST possible version of myself that I can be! A far better me than days prior, months prior, years prior, decades prior. The lessons haven't been easy ones. The road before me is placed with what I am sure will be, many difficult hurdles, challenges and temptations. What I am setting is a very high bar. Not just for myself. But for others. I strive to not just set an example. But to be the example. No matter what has transpired or has happened in your past. As my life coach put it best today...
"Let it be."
There are many reasons why I made the decision for a legal name change. The most important one is because I choose to be happy. A choice to be who I want to be and rid of anything that is in my past that didn't serve me well. Things happen. Life happened. I now have the reigns to choose 'wisely.' A fresh start on a clean slate. A new and far better version of ME. It's been hard to make that last and final change. But with the help of others. I have finally realized that no one can create your happiness. The only person to do so is...You, Yourself and I. We all have the ability to be happy. We all have the ability to allow ourselves to be miserable. I now choose very wisely. ~Happy
A huge project still in the making. Repairing and repainting our entire home has not only brought with it many rewarding moments. But most importantly, it has allowed for me to be in the moment of self-reflection. Being at peace with the past. What is and what will be. Welcoming the future on my terms. It's called being undeniably, absolutely, unmistakable, HAPPY! There are times when we all will have our weak moments. But during those times it is when we find our best moments. The power of strength. Being and staying STRONG, determined and FOCUSED like never before!
There are no pity parties on this journey of life. We all create our own happiness and are 110% entitled to it! We all have our flaws. We all have our weaknesses. But one thing we all have is...God.
Today I make another monumental step in the right direction. A chance to change for the better. No one is perfect. Yet we all can strive to be a far better version of ourselves today, tomorrow, next week, next month and next year. A far better and much happier version of ourselves. If sometimes that means making decisions that might not appeal to others. Just remember...Your happiness is determined by one person and one person only.
