Embracing Transformation

Transformation is a process in which all who desires change must embrace. This process most times is a very frightening one because it requires you to reevaluate your current condition and unlearn all of the falsities that were applied during your previous journey.

Isn’t it something, that in order to go to the next level and transform to the next stage in your life you have to deal with and confront faulty operations and habits that you have become so accustom to! Confronting customs that no longer are true or no longer serves a purpose as it relates to new the direction in which one desires to go can be hard!!!  Concerning weight loss…. In order to transform I had to deal with unhealthy learned behaviors, I had to confront family traditions that were literally killing me, and I had to be bold enough to break a cycle that had influenced me for sooooo long!!!! In order to be successful during your process you must first admit that there is truly a need for change!!! Not simply a want or a desire…. But rather a TRUE need!!! I needed to not only be alive but I needed to live, and in order to live somethings embedded in me had to DIE!!!! The death of comfort during any TRANSFORMATION requires mental strength because letting go of things that provide temporary satisfaction or instant gratification will set your body into shock… Talk about DETOX!!!! So in the process of change you must quickly learn MIND OVER MATTER! Not only do you have to surrender your mind to this new route but true transformation often requires your environment and surroundings to change as well……. Just take that in for a minute…. For months I had to learn to make myself a PRIROTY even as it related to my immediate family. I had to learn to take off that super hero cape of trying to save and be there for everybody and I had to realize that the Super Woman herself needed to be SAVED!!!! Wow!!!! See those around you and closes to you are often blinded by your inner strength that you demonstrate in your support to them…. Yet fail to demonstrate within yourself. Example, when we look back at my FAT GIRL photos….. Those who love me the most say things like I don’t remember you ever being that BIG!!!! (I guess love is blind… lol) Trust me I was BIG….387lbs after that I stopped counting…. I had to wake up and embrace TRANSFOMRATION! I had to say YESSSSS to me and let some of my SUPER WOMAN services fall to the way side. I had to learn how to live and how to have balance. I refused to die in a stage that I should have never been in! I woke up and said today is the day let the TRANSFORMATION begin. I am still on this new journey and it is exciting and invigorating and yet it sometimes can be difficult and hard but I trust the PROCESS because it is working. I am developing into a beautiful butterfly who wants to share her testimonies and truths with the world. Empowering us to SLOW down REASSES and LIVE!!! I am still on my Journey because I found that when you open yourself up to change you often find even better ways to reinvent the wheel… or you simply enter into another stage of your transformation just as the butterfly….. As we embark upon the NEW YEAR and NEW SEASON I encourage you to be open to CHANGE and allow yourself to be TRANSFORMED. Be real with yourself, break free out of your comfort zone, and commit to the NEW YOU that desires to emerge! Being alive is good but living while you are alive is EVEN BETTER!!!! Let go of old habits that no longer serve a purpose in your life, open up your mind to setting realistic goals, be committed to change, embrace the challenge that comes with change, learn to love yourself, and learn to take time for you in order to TRANSFORM!!!!!!
