Lately I’ve started to take my health (both mental and physical) a lot more seriously than I ever did in the past. I’m beginning to realize that there are so many things in life that can’t be controlled, and sometimes terrible things happen when you least expect it. But taking care of my health, my body, and my mind in order to feel good about myself is something that I CAN control! I’m learning more and more to appreciate the process, and just do the best that I can to be there for myself and the people around me.
I have such tremendous support in my life and want to pass that same support to others who are trying to create a better life for themselves.

This candy frog mold will work nicely for making edibles, soaps, candles, wax melts, poppets and other magical tools for enchantment. For those of you who aren’t aware, frogs have a magical correspondence with fertility, health and honesty, as well as transformation since they evolve from water to earth.
These two pictures are approximately 4 months apart. The one on the left was taken when I wanted to start the Bodybuilding.com 200k Transformation challenge in January (never committed to it), and the one on the right was taken today.

In January, I was in a bad place. Depressed beyond belief. Immobile. And in a very unhealthy relationship.
But today? Gosh…. I feel strong and confident for the first time in YEARS. My moods have stabilized, I’m taking the steps needed towards improving my health, I’m meditating daily, and even though there are many things I need to work on in my life— I’m at peace with myself. And I’m very proud of how far I have come in such a short amount of time.
The future is so bright. I am thankful.
