For the last several months I have been working towards a healthier, happier me.
From my mental health to my physical
(less of the physical I have to admit because I refuse to exercise or eat better!)
But I have been looking into natural and alternative forms of medicine to balance out and gain control of my hormones and to give me a sense of energy I have perhaps never felts.
At my work we have been discussing this idea of a frog in boiling water.
If you put the frog in a pot of cold water and slowly turn up the heat
he wont jump out.
but if you threw him in the hot scolding pot he would jump.
For so many of us women this is how we react to the changes in our bodies.
We learn to accept the hormones, the unwanted weight gain, the restlessness,
and so on... and from what I hear it just gets worse. uggg.
So I have decided to jump!
I am tired of the ups and downs of my moods, the constant irritability, and the lack of energy.
I've spoken with my doctor a little bit about these issues but have never really felt like she was listening. If I'm not anemic, why am I tired?
I'm going to try some natural products from Secrets of Mother Nature
If you are interested I'll be more than happy to share with you all how and if these products help me. But I'm very excited to try ANYTHING at this point.
Also I've decided to go the natural route because as many of you know
motherhood is getting closer for me (not pregnant yet!)
and I want to be as health as I can be to carry a happy healthy baby into this world.
As I said I am also working on my mental life too.
I've been reading self help books about marriage, self esteem and many other issues that are important to me to work on.
But most importantly I have been opening up to my friends and family
I have such a small view of life.
It's so comforting to talk to others who are on my same path or up ahead
about the issues I'm having
from the challenges of marriage, self acceptance, copping with everyday stresses,
or letting go of the past.
Life is hard... but it's wonderful!
In blogland and we tend to show just the happy go lucky side of things
and thats fine - I love that about blogging
but what I also love about blogging is the community of woman
the bonds we have and the wisdom we share
All of you effect my life in such a positive way!
On a lighter side of things
I haven't made friday Mosaic in a while.
I love putting these together!
This one really makes me over the top happy.
Such happy cheerful colors.
This last week you have all left such lovely comments
on my blog and in flickr land!
Many of you are really excited about my paper dolls! YEAH!
But unfortunately I'm going to sadly make you all wait one week more.
I know, that's not very nice but I have a few more ideas...
and I think you will conclude they were worth the wait.
This weekend sadly wont be a creative time for me.
It's spring cleaning time
We are cleaning our garage which is scary beyond belief.
And today I am starting to paint our now guest room and future nursery
to look a little something like this.
Thanks Jenny for the inspiration!
Have a lovely weekend Gals~
