Where to begin...

August 13, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This past month was both hard and amazing for us. We had to say goodbye to our dear Piper and at the same time we grew so close as a family traveling and spending precious time together. I will never forget time memories we made in Greece and most recently this weekend on our safari/waterpark trip here in Norway. It was amazing. I have so much to share. So many emotions are streaming through me now. 

My time with my family has become priority number one. It always was, but now, it has become so very important to me that all I want to do is savor every second with my girl and my dear love while I can. It is funny. While we were on vacation in Greece, there were times the world just seemed to fade away and it felt as if we were in our own little world all together. I loved it. I loved being away from it all. I think in many ways my journey of fitness and weight loss has made me a better mother and overall, it has been so good for me, but now, there is a new journey ahead of me. Perhaps one that is not online helping others lose weight, but a journey of my own. Truly of my own. No blogs, no posting, just me as a Mom, a wife and someone who is on a quest to become closer to the Lord and closer to my family. Maybe this next journey is one where God blesses us as a family in ways we could not imagine, one in which I become more, far more.....not in my fitness life but in my faith. I do not know where this next journey will take me but all I know is that I got a taste of what it was like to just together, and I fell in love with it. We all did. I think social media is great and can benefit many but I also feel that living in the now, in the moment with those closest to us is the most important thing we can do. Goals are good but sometimes life can happen all around you while you are trying plan everything out and help others reach their own goals. I only get this one chance to be with my family, and I intend on making the most of every moment before they pass me by. My new goal? To live in the NOW with those dearest to me. To become closer to the Lord, to teach my little girl as best as I can  and to never regret for a moment time lost with my family. 

I can say this with all my heart. I feel so at peace right now. I think it is good to let the distractions of the world fade away and to pull your focus back on where it belongs. 

I hope to be blogging about our trips more this week and we will do our best to post the pics asap!! I have a few on our site but only ones from my phone. The good ones are from Micah of course :)
