I want to become the best version of myself day by day

Keywords: weight loss

I’m just another ordinary mama keeping herself accountable.. I needed a place to document my life’s memorable moments, weight loss, foods, workouts, and inspiration without feeling like my family and friends are my only spectators. I’d rather relate/support accounts similar to mine, clap for one another, and not annoy those who don’t feel like being a part of my journey.

I am learning to live day by day, picking up the pieces and taking baby steps to create the life that I want for my kids and myself

It wasn’t until both the devastation and anger passed that I finally began to self-reflect on myself. This caused me to really look at the person I was, who I wanted to become and the life I truly wanted to have. So, my marriage was over. That totally sucked but that doesn’t define me as a person. Yes, I was a stay at home mom and housewife. I loved being able to be so involved with my kids this way, but I knew I could find a way to still be involved while supporting our new life as well. I had never really been alone, and that terrified me. Was this my dream?

Help me gain more confidence in my work and when presenting my work to others

I would like to get to a place where I can take criticism without getting defensive and acknowledging that everyone has their own opinions. It is crucial within design to be able to grow from criticism, not every potential employer will like your work, not every client will understand your creative vision but that is ok. If I can work on honing my skills to the best of my ability, learning from criticism and creating work that I am proud of then I hope everything else will follow in time.

I am stronger than my thoughts, I am in control of my own mind

Recently, I have been practicing that phrase to help center me in times of high anxiety and doubt. It did just that, and this time it helped me remember how badly I want to think back on this moment 8 months from now and laugh for being scared to start, how badly I want to feel comfortable 3 weeks from now when I shop for my wedding dress, and how badly I want to continue to write these blogs with an honest hand.
