I know I have mentioned in quite a few posts that people and things in life...those "bumps" in the road try and drag us down.
When we meet challenges like these, we have a few options.
We can stay true to who we are, what we believe and FIGHT.
Or we can let that "bump" take over our entire life.
This week was rough. From a person that puts others first, in all aspects.
It hurt to feel attacked by someone that doesn't know me...doesn't know me at all.
Dirty laundry will not be aired in order for me to move forward BUT I do know that it tested me.
My strength. My weaknesses.
I allowed the walls to cave in around me over one person and their thoughts.
Why am I sharing this? Because it is important to know that in life, people and things will try to drag you down, try to test your strength and it is how we push forward that measures our strength and the kind of person that we are.
As a parent and former teacher, we put children first. No matter what. When someone doesn't have our child's best interest at heart, we get ANGRY. An anger that sometimes we've never felt because they are our world, our lives...
What I learned is that I cannot be intimidated by fear OF ANYTHING.
Not only with fear of failing at healthy living, weight loss, Head "Move It Momma" for my women, but for all aspects of life.
I was tested, felt defeated but NOW I'M BACK!
Whew it feels good to know who I am, what I stand for and that I did what was right in a very drawn out, awful situation.
And while all of you have NO clue what I am talking about, I know you may be able to relate to life's "bumps" and maybe you will define your strength once again by knowing you came out and did what was right.
Running Club and he reached 18 laps! That's almost FOUR MILES before school!

Today I choose to push forward, no matter what "bump" tries to drag me down...and I hope you will too!
