live-intentionally

I just got through with vacation and it was amazing. I was busy! But it was so nice to have ME-TIME! Ya know? My eating did get off track some. Doesn’t everyone’s on vacay? I am getting back on a schedule and back to the way it should be. It’s funny. I prefer being on a schedule with my food. It sounds a little nuts. As much as I hate being back at work and back to the daily grind, I don’t mind being back to food schedule at all. I feel better that way. So I am trying to just do better and get totally focused again.

Yes, I have been doing my Juice Plus. I have done well enough that I am now listed as Direct Distributor. Not a big title or anything, but it meant something to me. I really want to help others with their health. I know the slightest improvement can make a huge difference! And I am not even just talking using Juice Plus. I mean, when you make a change, you FEEL it! I feel the difference. I feel different. Then I act differently!

It is amazing. It truly amazes me how big of a snowball effect it all really is. Ya know? When one thing is off, the rest just follows. When I was depressed and feeling like shit, it affected the rest of my life and really caused some problems. The weight went up. The depression worsened. I felt worse about myself. I didn’t want to do anything. So on and so forth. It gets to be a pattern. There comes a point where we have to find something that breaks it. If not, we’re going to live miserably. I don’t think God put us here to be miserable all the time. I just don’t believe He is that kind of God. We can make ourselves miserable. We can allow life to get us. And believe me! I know how easy it is. I have had so many crappy things happen to me that I could write an album/cd of country songs. I just had to finally say that it was in the past and figure out a way to live the life I want.

I am nowhere near where I want to be. But I’m a lot closer than I was before! That’s progress! And that is how you have to live. Intentionally.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
