The Pain of Change

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.”

Another Thursday has rolled around and yet again I am thankful. As I type this entry my hands and arms are literally shaking. No, I am not nervous about you reading my thoughts, you see I just got back from the gym. Today I did some arm exercises and to put it bluntly…I have a very weak upper body!! I know I have gotten stronger somewhat by just carrying Sebastian around. He’s become a big boy, especially after a meal. I swear he feels 10 lbs. heavier!!

So as I sit here writing very jittery, I have realized how thankful I am for this pain and uncomfortableness. Because these are the signs that change is happening in my body. Now, no one ever said change is easy or even comfortable. But I do feel that most say that change is good. In this case, it is very good. I am also changing in not just the obvious ways. I am changing my mind to think of taking time for me. I am changing my lifestyle so that I can be a good example to my son. I am changing now for a better future later.

I am also very thankful for my husband who is helping this change become a permanent part of my life. He continues to support my trips to the gym by his encouraging words and by the even more important task of watching Sebastian during my time away. Without him, I know I would be less inclined to take this time for myself and my health.

If you are going through a change right now in your life, I encourage you to be thankful for this time. It may be painful and very uncomfortable but, if you push through the discomfort, it can also be very rewarding. I hope that you see that change can be good. Here’s to believing in your life, it will be very good!!
