Tested out a different gym consistently this week. also switched my pm workouts to 7am and i must say.. my days felt longer, more productive, energized and just plain happier..by a lot. never thought i’d say it but, i think i’m transforming into a morning gym person 😯☀️ #whoami

It doesn't have to be a weight loss transformation. it could be lifestyle, strength, body composition.
Sometimes you just have to pause. that's what i did this week. the past two years have been a year of losses. on january 4, 2016, my husband and i lost baby ezra addis. pregnancy loss wasn't new to me, i had experienced pregnancy loss in my early 20s before i was married. it hit me on a different level being in my 30s and married. why? because i allowed myself to feel it. i was grown up enough to understand that loss doesn't mean lack. it means, life and growth. ironic, huh? 2016 was the year of grounding in the midst of that pregnancy loss. god was grounding me to truly understand myself, my beliefs and what i stood for. with that growth, another loss happened. i left my job in ministry, i let go of a church that i knew in my heart of hearts god did not want me at any longer, it no longer aligned with where my heart was and what i believed in. (yes, i still believe in god before anybody starts asking questions). that was loss for me. everything i once believed in was self tested and i had to respond in obedience to him. obedience is sometimes painful, especially if your heart is involved. since moving to the pacific northwest almost a year ago, our family (including the hubby's side) has had nine deaths, now ten with sweet daisy. i took this week to pause and just be. just be sad, confused,lost, uncertain...most of all i took time to embrace. i embraced the pain of loss from the past two years. god is still good and he is still brilliant in his ways. he reminds me in my pain of his grace and love. he does the same for you in your pain. we just have to embrace and let him in. #pause#justbe#pain#feelit#ownit#butdontbeit#change#love#grace#growth#him#pregnancyloss#miscarriage#family#friends#newseasons#changehurtssometimes
