Rockin the blue today! The fabulous blue butterflies were my inspiration… along with an old journal entry… that broke my heart.
Enjoy the video!

As I was reading a journal entry in one of my journals from several years ago…. that read “I feel powerless” I got so sad, and grateful for where I am now. I wrote steps on how I could stop feeling powerless. Part of that process was owning my story…owning my decisions and owning my attitude. Changing things did not happen over night. I made the decision to make the changes right then…. and then took the steps to change. I decided to stop giving away my power and really taking ownership of my life and once I did that everything changed. That’s not to say that things were perfect or I didn’t slip into old patterns. Life is a cycle and things come and go… but for the most part, I never looked back. I dealt with my depression, made health choices, spoke to a therapist, and little step by little step… the light started to shine in my life again. YOU can do the same!
My friend… if you are feeling like you have given your power away, make the decision today to take it back. Own your part in your story and go! Take care of yourself, loving yourself and make the list today for what you can do to make the change.
You can do it… you can own it…. you don’t have to be a victim…
Always know that you are loved!
