Change Your Life Friday has been a blog for over 2 years, and it has been a term amongst friends for about two and a half years. However; I had my first CYLFriday event 6 years ago today. In happened on March 28th, 2008, which just happened to land on a Friday.
The night before I had run out of options to a problem in my life and felt hopeless. I was able to seek out a group of people who had an answer to my problem. My problem did not go away over night, it took some tough work and soul-searching, but I have not had to allow my problem to run my life anymore since that day.
My life has been nothing but a blessing over the last six years. It has not all been easy, and there have been plenty of times when I had to do things that I did NOT want to do, but did it anyways because I had seen other successful people do it. In the last 6 years I have been able to help family, graduate from college, pass on the solution to the problem that was given to me, and land a dream job.
There have been plenty of low spots during that same time period. Loss of relationships, death, hard times with family, and general fear just to name a few. I did not let these things distract me from the solution to my problem, or principles I continue to try and live by. It has not been perfect, and there is still a lot of growth ahead, but I am grateful for that specific Friday, and every other Friday that has added to my life.
Affirmation: This Friday is perfect just the way it is. I take my life as it is, and if there is change needed, I know that change is possible.
