LIVING BETTER: CHANGING FOR A BETTER YOU


Change is not always easy particularly when you are around people who want you to stay the way that you are. Sometimes the only way to make the necessary changes in your life is to leave the environment you are in.

The cost of change goes far beyond dollars and cents. There is an emotional need to be around things familiar. It hurts when people think the new you is offensive: “You lost all that weight and now you to cute to be around me.” Family can be the most discouraging when you want to do something different and there will be those who will remind you of your failures.

When you decide to make a drastic change in your routine: get a job if you are a stay at home mom, retire, or start your own business, this can disrupt the status quo in your household. No matter how much you have thought it out, no matter what you said to your spouse or your spouse said to you, even if you prepared the children your changing can be upsetting to those around you and cause you to give up.
There are benefits to moving to a new location.  Many a person has found the perfect mate when he or she moved because of a job opportunity. Young people who grow up in a violent neighborhood seem to excel in a positive way when they leave and become surrounded by men and women who study and work hard. Have you ever known a person who was overweight in high school and lost quite a bit of weight by the time he or she returned for a class reunion? Sometimes you have to love your family and friends from afar until you can stay focused on your goals regardless of their opinion.

We all need to make adjustments in our lives not just on January 1, it is a continuous process. Sometimes we decide to do one thing, like get debt free, but we do what we did not want to do, spend money.  What is important is that we realize the set back is not a failure unless we quite.

My faith is the source of my encouragement. My first eBook: MOVING FORWARD BY FAITH describes how I was able to make the necessary adjustments to live victoriously in discouraging times. I do all things through Christ I cannot imagine a life without Him. (Philippians 4:13) Change is not always easy but it is possible.

Matthew 19:26
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
