14 May


I finished my last day of work at the bank. It was a very surreal experience walking in there yesterday, realizing that it would be the last time I ever do this. It was even weirder having to take off my keys and hand them over before I left. Everything got completely “real” on me in a hurry. One chapter on my life closed, and now another one opening up. Time to see what this new chapter brings my way. I know God has the perfect path to lead me to.

Ironically, I got the perfect email from my daily meditation newsletter this morning. It was so fitting for me and made me feel a lot better about my decision to leave work.

Tired of Life Pushing You Around?

by JANE POWELL on MAY 14, 2011

“Change makes the difference.”

If you want your life to be something other than it is right now, your only true option is change. Change takes courage and isn’t easy, especially if you’re feeling safe and secure with the way things are.

The hardest part about change is instigating it. This feels risky, but once you take that first step you set things in motion.

Today, is your day to take that first step and stop letting life push you around. Today, is the day you take charge of the changes you need to make in your life.

Start by identifying small things that you would like to change, just tiny things – things that are holding you back. Make a promise to yourself. Then, stick to that promise and watch yourself change. As you tackle small changes, your confidence will grow. You’ll find that bigger changes don’t seem insurmountable. And, most important, that change is rewarding and fun, after all!

Today’s Affirmation: I have made changes to better my life.


Time to enjoy the weekend to the fullest! I just got back from a great sweat sesh at the gym, lifting it up with the all the muscle heads…ya know, the usual. Now I’m getting ready to get mani pedis with my sister! Hope you all have a great day! ❤
