Finding peace, contentment, and myself

Life can be challenging. Good things happen and bad things happen. But lately, all I have been able to see are the bad things. I've been feeling sorry for myself and drowning myself in a pool of my own negativity. I have been repeatedly pushing my own head back down again every single time I try to come up for air. I'm done with it. It is time to consciously make a change and find the me I used to be. I'm tired of living with this person I have become. I miss joy, and passion, and fun, and adventure. I owe it to the people I love to give them someone who isn't sucking the happiness out of life.

Anytime is a good time to make a change, but it feels all the more appropriate because it is the start of a new year. It is time for a fresh start. It is time to remember the things that bring me joy that I have neglected. It is a time to be grateful for all that I have. It is a time to learn more about myself, and become the person I have always imagined myself to be. I will devote more time to nurturing my soul so that I am able to be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I want to radiate light and peace to those around me.
