Making Changes In Your Life

I been doing a lot of thinking lately about myself and my life and I feel that its time for a change. It feels that I am missing something in my life. That one thing that would really make me happy and feel complete. I mean, I have a great husband and kids. I have an adorable 2-year grandson and another grandbaby that will be here any day now. So, you would think I would have everything I wanted. Right?  My life has been full of drama and chaos over the past couple of years that it has really taken a toll on me and almost my marriage.  

During this time I feel that I lost who I am.  I used to not let things bother me and the leveled head one. I always stayed positive, especially when times got really rough. Believe me, they have! Now, I am more ill-tempered, reserved and just at times plain  unhappy.  I just turned 42 the other day and I don’t want the next years of my life to be filled with doubts, what if’s or even unhappiness. I want to laugh, be free and be emotionally and even financially stable.

Sometimes I feel selfish for feeling this way, but I also know that at one point in my life I have to think about ME. I have spent most of my life taking care of everybody else and still do.  I am just so tired physically and emotionally. My husband and I have thought about starting over fresh somewhere else and we may just do that after my youngest daughters go to college in 2 years.  I feel that would help me and even us.

But, in the meantime, I need to find the common ground. I need to stop being afraid and worrying about everywhere else. I just need TO DO IT! Find what makes me happy and go for it. Does anyone else feel that same way? If so, what did you do to change it?

    There are lots of things in me that I need to change. One of the things that I would like to learn is time management. I am prone to procrastination and I need to change this habit.

    I’ve also thought, sometimes, specially when I’m tired, if everything around me deserves the effort… Sometimes we all need a change, and, if you have the opportunity, go and do it! When you spend your life taking care of everyone and everything around you, it’s normal you feel that way, so, think about making a change!
