Spring forward. Such a simple sentence but full of meaning. Each spring we turn our clocks forward and start fresh. With a spring birthday coming up, I have started thinking of ways to "spring forward" my life.
There is so much I can do to make some positive changes in my life: health, happiness, spirtuality and faith.
I have begun to watch what we eat. I live with a junk food addict and that is a big downfall for my self control. Anyone who knows me is aware that I am not a vegetable person. I actually ate tomatoes in my salad tonight, that is a big step for me.
My daughters have decided to do a 5K and I am determined to join them. I have half heartedly taken to walking but must put more time and effort into it. I know this is what I need to do.
I have been questioning my faith and spirituality lately. I was raised in the Presbyterian church and attended Sunday school, youth fellowship and choir practice every week, because my parents said I had to. As I grew older, I continued to attend services and made sure my girls did too but I feel like I just go through the motions. I don't feel that deep connection I think I should. I can recite the Lord's Prayer and Aposteles Creed but I don't really understand what they mean.
I need to look into myself and discover what my faith means to me.
I will be 53 soon. My family genes aren't all that great and I want to be the one to break that cycle. Spring is a new beginning, and that is just what I intend to do this year.
