Trying new things!

Okay so this has been a very stressful week...even though I am on spring break! For years I have been wanting to try yoga, but to be honest the people who do yoga seem so intense and serious about it I was afraid of embarrassing myself. Then God blessed me with a friend named Tiffany Wilson. I took her yoga class on Tuesday and it was AMAZING!! She is so wonderful! She has such a gift for teaching yoga. I was not even scared to go into the class. She was kind enough to meet me before the class, walk with me into the class and get me all set up. She was motivating and encouraging and REALLY KNEW HER STUFF! I am so excited that I now feel that I can go into a yoga class and do it on my own...Although I would prefer to continue to take her class...she makes it fun! Tiffany really gave me a lot of courage for a new activity that will help me with my stress and anxiety!

"Every Journey Has Road Blocks"

Hi Friends,

Ok so here is the deal. If I got on here every time and told you the good news you would get sick of hearing from me pretty quickly. The deal is 90% of my journey is good news and great things! However, every journey has road blocks and this week I ran into two.

First road block was the weekend! I am not gonna lie, I am gonna be straight up honest with all of you. I ate bad foods! It was disgusting. I was disgusted at myself and disappointed in myself. However, there is a light in all of this. I did not eat them because I craved them or because I had to have them...NO I ate them because I was living my life and sometimes in my life there is going to be a weekend where I go to a BBQ and then go to a party where all they have is pizza and I don't plan for that. It happens that is why it's called life! I will be okay I just have to work it off at the gym, not get down on myself and know that nothing can stop me ... I mean look how far I have come.

Second road block. I know I am ashamed to say it ... A guy!!! Wait read on and see how I handled it...you will be stunned!! Ok so let me protect this guy a little bit and give him a fake name, we will call him "Joe." "Joe" is a guy that I met. He asked me out and I thought it was a date (as did everyone else I spoke to about it). Then there was a second request, which was canceled. Anyway, during this whole process I realized that "Joe" was not dating me he was just going out with me to be friends, which was fine. However, the way that he was portraying and acting prior to all of this was VERY misleading!!! He hurt me. I spent a week or two getting past this and realizing this was NOT about me!!! Okay so here is the road block... then he asked me out again!!!!! Hello is that a test from God or what!??!?! I told him to call later so I could check my schedule. The truth is he took me so off guard that I did not know what to say. I know that if he calls I will have to tell him no. He is not good for me in the relationship sense. We can be friends but nothing else.

Getting past these road blocks that God presents us with are difficult, but it is what makes us stronger and people and more prepared for relationships further down the road.
