Opening Day of Birthday Season

Yes, my friends, it is that time of the year again...Birthday Season! The month long celebration of the little things in life that make every day a reason to celebrate.

I so enjoy time with my boys.

Some big news was announced today, as well...I became a Beachbody coach!  I am excited to see where this new adventure leads.  Aside from a few "cosmetic" changes to some social media sites, I am still the same me being me with a new intentional purpose: Sharing my story to encourage others to begin rewriting theirs. It all begins with a choice to embrace change.
30 more days to celebrate my birthday...cannot wait to see what the days bring!

I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
