Holy Moly Do I Look Different!!!


I was looking back at some "old school" pictures to compare my before and after's and HOLY MOLY WHO IS THAT GIRL!?!??! For sure that is not me???? Even my daughter said, "Mom your face looks different"...lets just call that baby fat! But yes this is me in the picture...that was my husband and I when we were 16 and 17 years old and boy do we look different. 
It is amazing to look back and not only see the OUTSIDE transformation I have had but also the INSIDE transformation. When I was 16 years-old, I was very insecure, anxious, a perfectionist, and obviously NOT in shape. On the OUTSIDE I appeared happy, but I struggled with feelings of inadequacy and extremely low self-esteem.  I felt like I had to be perfect or atleast "appear" perfect...BUT NOW, I am 30 years-old, with 3 kids...I am the strongest that I have ever been emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically. I am confident in who I am as a women, wife,  mother, daughter, and friend. Of course I am no where near perfect and that is because I let those standards go but I am well-balanced. I have found peace, happiness, and joy in life despite the storms that have come my way. It was not easy to get here and I am still learning and growing to be the best version of me.  I thank God every day for the continued transformation that he is doing in me on the Inside-Out because if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be who I am today...

I know at one point in my life I felt so alone, hopeless, and fearful...but YOU are not meant to do it alone. My heart is to give hope to women that they CAN DO IT...they can be OVERCOMER'S and change their life too. So I ask you today, if you are struggling in any area of your life...physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually, please reach out to me or someone else and get support...get the help you need to become Imperfectly Balanced.
