Choice, Chance, Change

Change, transformation, alteration what ever you what to call it , it is hard! It doesn’t matter what, or how, or even why; change is hard.

 
So many people resist change for many reasons!
 
Fear
Unknown
Lack of knowledge
 
The the thought of the word can make some of us literally physically ill.
 
Ugg Listen, I am not knew to change. I have been through many changes in my life.
 
I was a young mom and military spouse moving every few years,
Divorcee, single mom, a mom to a child with Down syndrome, Full time career woman, to a work at home mom.
Those are just to name a few! I have seen my share of change and I can promise you that none of them came easy!!
 
Change is inevitable, we all go through it but we are creatures of habit ! But, we are also creatures of change and adaptation.
 
Our habits are created in our brains, and our brains are constantly changing in response to our changing environment. Our adaptability is the secret to our success as a species.
So what is it that makes change a little easier for some than others. Some are able to harness adaptability and use towards something positive, to make those choices, those decisions, of how we want things to be; and who we want to be in this thing we called life.
 
You have a lot more power to become the person you want to be more than you might think. You are not predetermined by external environments, nor by the genes that created you . The secret is to learn to retrain your brain, yup, retrain those habits!!
 
I am not expert, therapist, or psychologist ,  and I have always found it difficult to deal with change. I am speaking the heart here because change is weighing heavy on my heart tonight. 
 
As much as I wanted to think of myself as a flexible go with the flow kind of person, It never went with out internal struggles. Aside from my OCD, I like to be in control of my situations!
I like to know where I am, what I’m doing, where I’m going. I like to have things layed out in black and white on my many lists of to-dos, and ideas.  Basically having a plan and being prepared I minimize the level of uncertainty in my life. Less uncertainty, less stress right?
 
My discomfort around uncertainty means I am usually very in-decisive.   In some ways this has been beneficial;  for example, it’s allowed me to take my time making the right decision on hard choices of change!!  In other ways, it’s been a disadvantage, especially when it does take a long time for me to make those changes, those decisions. I see others in places where I would have been had I not made the decisions sooner.
 
In the past when life threw me curve balls of change, It left me feeling uncertain!  I had to do whatever I needed to do to regain my sense of control.  Keeping my options open or “going with the flow” provoked feelings of restlessness, insecurities, and eventually a whole lot of stress!

My relationship with change, took a indisputable turn three years ago when  I embarked on the adventures of a home based business.
Some people think   Direct Sellers or Multi Level Markets as scam artists, or crooks. Some think of them as annoying, and bothersome.  Well I am a direct seller, a so called Multi Level Marketer and though my name may not be in spotlights just yet I feel like I have already succeeded beyond my dreams.

Change happens, and learning how to cope with that change I learned by being in this business. It has taught me how to be a better me. To live a life without fear! To live for change!  It has taught me that everyday we wake up to a new adventure with no way of knowing where it will take us!!  To adapt easier and accept things  good or bad! To enjoy the ride, to live to the fullest!!

Change is hard, but with out it what do you really have?

MY WHY MY HOPE!

A WAHM voice!!
WAIT Stop scrolling, please take a minute and read this!

This boy is my why for everything that I do!! He is also my hope!!
You see one of the reasons I am so passionate about Beachbody, being a coach, getting healthy, and the life style that goes with it is to bring hope to other families with special needs.
The statistics and evidence is clear and shows that families with someone in the home with a disability are more likely to live in poverty! There are a lot of factors that go into this from caregivers employment to increase in expenses needed to care for the individual.
Statistics and evidence also shows that children living in poverty are more likely to develop disabilities. There are also many factors in this from nutrition to health care.
I searched a long time for data and research on this and I found a one fantastic comprehensive report that tells all!! It is worth looking at!
👉 https://www.ucl.ac.uk/…/WP25_Childhood_Disability_and_Pover…

My heart is full and I hope that our family can be an inspiration to others!! Life does not have to be unhealthy! You don’t have to live in poverty just because you have a loved one with a disability!
Is it easy??? Of course not, but nothing in life is easy!! I would rather work hard at trying to build a business from home, work hard at living a healthier lifestyle, then work hard worrying about how I am going to pay my bills!!

For many of us that have these precious angels we spend so much time away from them just to provide for them!! I know I did it for over 10 years!
💚I have hope and I believe with all my heart that change can happen!!
💚I have hope that we will flood the Network marketing area with special needs families and caregivers!
💚 I have hope in my heart that caregivers will hear my story and begin to live a healthier life so they can be the best for their loved one!
💚I have hope that my son will learn from my passion and one day be able to have his own business so that he can care for himself! ( also a healthier life)
💚I believe that if just paying it forward gives just one family hope to a better life then it is worth it.

I want to be home with my son!
I have to be home with my son!!
My son has a lot of needs! My son deserves the best!! downsyndrome parents
My son deserves to have me around for a long time!!
Your Loved One Does to!!
So YES HE IS MY WHY, MY HOPE for a better tomorrow!!!
