This is probably my favorite picture an the hardest.
He did not win, but he worked his hardest and for that we are so proud of his hard work.We have several more compeititions coming up and are looking for ward to them. Maybe one day Hubs and I might compete. With the change in my life, I just might be able to. BJJ has really been a great focus for our family. It has taught me a lot oabout patience and staying calm. It has helped to change the way I look at life. The Tae Kwon Do and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Female Kick boxing have been wonderful! I cannot thank my tainers at Corral's Marital Arts for all the help and the pushing me to do better.
One things I've learned in this journey is that I am the only one who can make it happen. No matter how many struggles or trials that I go through, if I don't accpet or push through them, I cannot change a thing. I cannot help my children to make better choices if I don't. I can't help them to eat better if I don't. I cannot expect them to obey and listen if I don't.
There are many things that I don't do that my boys don't do. To change that, I have to ensure I am doing the right things as well.Not everyone will agree with me and you know what that is okay. I am okay with not being like everyone else. I am okay with my boys having to have correction at times. I am okay that right now in this season, I am semi healthy and feeling great.
I am okay. This has been the hardes to accept. That I am okay where I am right now because I have come so far from where I was last year.
