Change has come!

In the past week, I have decided to no longer stay at my current job and start on a new adventure. My current job is working at a hospital in the food service area, I have enjoyed getting to do different things at the hospital and expand my job knowledge. Never, before this job, had I ever brewed coffee let alone be able to stay in an environment surrounded by the smell of brewed coffee without throwing up. Coffee tends to make me nauseous which is shocking to most of the world, but it was something that I have had to deal with. But anyways, this is now becoming my former life. I am now moving on to CLEANING. Not really done this before besides around the house, but I’m willing to try. The hours of work are the same and it is also gonna be full- time, but still something unknown. I’m told that this is a good thing to do as a job because if you work efficiently then you get done early and still get paid the same as if you were there the whole time. That is good!!! I also look forward to having a consistent schedule and 2 days off per week! It’s a miracle!!!  At the hospital, I am luck to get 1 day off a week and sometimes the is in between working  two 7 working day weeks. Time off is much wanted! 🙂 I’m looking forward to this and see what the future holds. Like Katy Perry says, “after a hurricane is a rainbow.” God has this!!!! God has me!!!

Need A Change

As I have said in some of my past posts, I am wanting to have a happier leave on life and therefore better mine and my husband’s life together. One of the things that I have not been able to get a grasp on is the influence that others have on us. As a Christian I do believe in the power of words and even the belief that if you think positively then more positive things will happen just because you are looking for them or see them more easily, plus the power of God of course!

All throughout mine and Daniel’s relationship we have been told by many different voices how bad we are for each other and how nothing good can come from us being together. FYI I still take offense to this. Even after 2 years of us being married nothing but negativity surrounds us. Not because of anything we do or do not do specifically, but because we choose to do things differently than the onlookers would want us to do it. Yes, we do need help. Neither one of us know that much about cars or things of that matter so we reach  out for help in that matter, but there is a lot that we don’t ask help for. Here recently we have had a lot of car issues and therefore keeping my dad on the run, but it is just temporary and we are very grateful for the help.

What I am asking for and was hoping would happen on it’s own is that mine and my husband’s lives be filled with people who are going to support and love us. Giving advice is a good thing too but do it in a positive and loving way rather than anger, hate, emotion, fed up, etc because that is what makes people not want to listen to other or even be around others. Each generation, each person is different and each person’s options in life are different. Time changes so much in so many ways and there are only a few things that can and will be constant: Love, God, Hope, Grace, Etc. God can and will provide all our needs but we would like to have family and friends too. We can keep each other happy by ourselves if we need to but interaction with others would be very nice under the right conditions (being positive, supportive, and loving).

I am beyond blessed to have a loving husband and a family that is concerned for me, but I know that there is an overwhelming amount of negativity surrounding us and I am saying NO MORE! “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!” Philippians 4:13

In the End

The Detox is now over! Yay!!! It was a very interesting part of my life which I may never forget, might repeat, might not, but it was interesting. Over all I did not enjoy it, I believe it was because where I work I am not allowed to bring food to eat with me because they give us an allowance for food on every shift we work. This goes to say that the food options at my work were not at all conducive to a detox. I ate the same thing every day and even then it was the best option I had but still wasn’t detox worthy. This made the task at hand a lot harder than it should have been, that and adjusting to my new sleep/work schedule. I did manage to loose about 10 lbs and that did make me happy, maybe next time things will be a bit easier, we’ll see.

Detoxing and Leaning

I decided a couple weeks back that I would join part of my family on the journey through a detox, but I was a little late. 🙂 I started my detox just a couple days ago, after some of the chaos I have been facing has calmed down some, so I could face this thing head on. This is the first really detox I have done and I am not being extremely strict, but I am learning just how hard it can be. As you all know, Easter just passed and during the holidays it is always harder to try to eat right and loose weight than in other parts of the year. Oddly enough for me though (somewhere in the last month), I somehow had managed to loose 20 pounds!!!!! That’s awesome! And I wasn’t even trying!!! However, now that I am trying, I am very interested to see what the detox will do for me. Right now I and praying for God’s strength over temptations and patience as I continue on this path. Wish me luck!!!
