Be-You-tifully Fit: Quiet Contemplation.

20151215_124831.jpgLooking towards 2016 with lots of wondering thoughts...

What should I do?  What do I want to commit myself to doing?

I have already come so far over the last 3 years (2 years post last pregnancy).  A lot of my doubts and negative thoughts have disappeared as I have sunk into an awkward comfort in my routine.  Each day I used to question myself in the mirror.  Am I pretty?  Do I look how I want to?  Do I look like I am on the inside?  Am I happy?  Those have left but been replaced with other questions.  Am I pushing too hard?  Do I remember how to stop and enjoy without worry?  Is there balance?

It was not until recently that I realized all of this was actually happening.  I have been in quiet contemplation.  Each and every night before I go to lye down, I do the following.  Every single night.  Never did I realize that it actually looks like an entire workout in itself to some.  Maybe I need to really search my heart and find if I have the balance still.
