Aha moment after Ladies Night

Wow I don't know how to describe how awesome the ladies that spoke tonight really are but I was so drawn in by all of their stories and how they got to where they are today and I LOVED each one.  All I could think of was this could be me someday and using Advocare as a vehicle for what God has planned for me!

I will be honest I have been so afraid of failing at anything that I really have limited myself to what I think I am capable of doing.  I learned tonight that I am CHOOSING to stay where I am in life because I am scared of failing, but by not ever starting I am doing what I fear most and am failing and I don't want to be that example to my children.  I have given up so much of who I am and what I want, loosing my drive in life, saying well my girls come first or making up some other excuse as to why I couldn't do something but the reality is that I CAN do whatever I set my mind to!  I need to start building myself up instead of tearing myself or my ideas down.

On my way home I was contemplating what I heard tonight and was listening to the Fish Christian Radio station and this song called "Overcomer" by Mandisa came on and it just hit me on such a personal level.  I can overcome this hand that I was dealt and I could choose to fight because my girls and myself are worth fighting for!  I need to grow as a person and step out of my comfort zone and move forward, moving my life in the direction that it was meant to go and on the path that Jesus has for me and my family.
