Letting Go

In the past month I've made several major changes in my life.  After debating for several years about gastric bypass surgery, I finally decided that this was the best tool for me to help me lose the extra weight I've been carrying.  Less than 3 weeks later, our house closed and we moved to a rental property while we wait for our new custom designed home to be built.  

Most exciting of all for me is that I decided to assume my husband's name.  After being called "Mrs. Smith" in the hospital multiple times, I thought that's not who I am.  I'm Mrs. Longstreet.  So, I made the change.  

I still felt that I could run my coaching practice and Pinkpreneurs while I healed, packed, organized, sent out notifications of address change.  All this in addition to making design decisions on our new home.  Oh ya, on top of all of this, I'm studying for an 8 day course that I'm taking at the end of May.  

Yes, I am fortunate that I'm able to get a lot done in a short amount of time, but even I couldn't live up to my high expectations.  So, several things dropped.  Our new place is still packed with boxes, the furniture isn't exactly where I want it located and I haven't spent as much time studying as I thought I would.  But, guess what?  Everything always works out in the end. Every time, no matter how much I stress or worry about it.  It always works out better than I can imagine. 

So, along with my maiden name of Smith and 25 pounds, I'm releasing my worries and concerns and enjoying the journey.  Because at the end of the day, this is what I'll remember.
