Thursday's Workshop(although it is Sunday)

So forgive me Momma Kat because Domestic Goddess forgot to post the workshop..I usually am not so scatterbrained but I still blame it on the two kids and my broke husband(who has upgraded his hand brace to a full arm cast)

So here is the weekly assignment.

I decided to pick:

3.) Describe a "new road" you've taken in your life.

I chose this because my life has changed a lot in the past few months. I thought living here in Alaska was going to be the worst experience in my life. (Okay, I tend to be a bit overdramatic) I decided that after a few failed friendships I was never going to go out and make any new friends because I was getting crapped on and things weren't going well for me at all (read: boo-hoo little ol me)

I decided that feeling sorry for myself was not going to make my life better and no one was going to come to the pity party, not even my own husband. So after everything that happened I decided to go to PWOC so I can be around positive women who will be there for me if I needed someone to talk to. I had met Angie when I first went to church and she started picking me up and we would go to PWOC together. Her mentoring has been such a drastic change in my life that my worrying about what other people thought of me just washed away. I don't plot revenge against the people that wronged me anymore. I pray and converse with God about what to do when people had wronged me and what to do instead of thinking about doing things that will do more harm than good in my life. God has been such an amazing part of my life nowadays that I am mad at myself for not turning to Him sooner. I think it would have saved me a lot of heartache thats for sure.

Now, I can't say I have changed overnight. I think it will take awhile for me to become a better person physically and mentally. I know through God and having positive women in my life I will keep going down my "new road" and be a better friend, mom, wife, daughter, sister than I ever imagined. I pray that my friends will begin to see the new me and accept it. I also pray that I continue to find friends that will be a positive influence in my life throughout my journeys as an army wife.

As I close this I want to say thank you to my readers and my friends who have stood by me when I was at my lowest. It takes a great friend to have that much patience in someone like me thats for sure!

What a wonderful story of self re-evaluation and positive change. It takes a strong character to be able to look at one's self and determine that there are a few flaws that can be corrected. Congratulations on finding a group of women who will help you grow in the direction that will make you a happier you.

HI! I popped over from MamaKats because I'm usually the Queen of Tardiness and I wanted who was trying to take my crown! LOL!

I have another bloggy friend who is also an army wife and is ALWAYS talking about missing Alaska. If you haven't already met her, you might want to pop over to:

She'd probably love to hear from Alaska.

TTFN and God Bless!
