MY "AH HA" Moment that made me who I am today!

 We all have that "Ah, Ha" moment where we realize that something has to change. I bet you all could tell me one time in your life when something changed you in a way that you would never be the same person again. Well, I had that moment in June of 2012.
My 3rd child was 6 weeks at the time, I had two other children under the age of 5, my husband was traveling for work, I had insomnia, I was breastfeeding, I was a grad student, and my hormones were all over the place. And on a Monday morning I experienced my first panic attack and it was life-changing and my life has never been the same since that day. God had opened my eyes and made me realize that my priorities in life were not in line with his and that something had to change...I HAD TO CHANGE. And that is when my recovery of panic attacks and anxiety began. I had to completely uproot BAD habits that I had developed over the course of my life and I had to start developing NEW HEALTHY habits that made me a better women, wife, mother, daughter, and friend.  The first 3 months were very difficult but I was making PROGRESS not PERFECTION. I was becoming a NEW ME. 
There were two things my counselor said to me that have profoundly changed my life...1) You are not SUPERWOMAN and God never intended you to be and 2) Start working out!
Those two statements helped transform me into who I am today. I had to let the standards go I placed upon myself and ask HIM what his standard was for my life. And then I had to figure out a way to workout while juggling my role as a wife and a mother of a breastfeeding newborn, a 3 year old and a 5 year old.  And it was not easy. But I made it a priority for my health and MY FAMILY. I had to be the best women, wife, and mother God had called me to be. And my life has been forever changed since that "AH HA" moment. No, it has not been easy and yes, I still struggle every day with wanting to be SUPERWOMAN and learning to DE-STRESS....but I am working on it and I am constantly becoming a better ME...IMPERFECTLY BALANCED in all ways spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
So I want to ask you right now to evaluate your life and what is your "AH HA" moment. What is it going to take for you to change your life, change your health inside-out like I did?
If you are ready to make that change email me NOW because I want to help you be the NEW YOU, IMPERFECTLY BALANCED.
