The big difference is I was not adding positive value to anyones life, including my own. I was very lost and collecting treasures for my life but not collecting treasures for heaven! I didn’t realize when I got into that industry that it was totally un healthy! Everything about it looked shiny and glorified from the outside. It isn’t so much that way when you are in it! I was drinking heavily 3-5 nights per week (and getting in my car and driving home!), I was out all hours of the night, and it did not stop there. I also had no idea what I truly wanted for my life. I thought I had it all figured out, but I was super lost!
My life started to change in 2009 when I gave my life to God. The changes were small, and bit by bit, but over time the changes were immense! They were huge! They were God sized! I was married to an incredibly loving Man, I had a healthy beautiful baby girl, and I became a Beachbody Coach and found a career of purpose! I decided to lead my life with the word of God and follow the principles of the Bible the best way that I could at the time. Over time I became better and stronger in my walk with God. It isn’t perfect and there are still days I wrestle with self doubt but I am always searching for those reminders of where I came from and where I am today.
How has your life changed for the better in the last 5 years?! What do those changes look like and what are you thankful for?
