Hard Work And Self-Discipline Pays Off


Today, I feel great! As in no pain, tons of energy, and a beautiful feeling of peace. Honestly, I don’t know that I have ever felt this amazing in my whole life. I wish God would give me the words to fully translate this beautiful transformation He has given me. 

For seven years or longer, I have woken up every day in pain. My thoughts were consumed with this pain and how to function despite it. Most days I felt drained and just unwell. It took every ounce of strength that I could find just to keep going. Sometimes people would ask me what I was going to do on the weekends and I would always think, rest and recover from the workweek, so hopefully I can do it again. 

Now, the quality of my life has changed. I find myself thinking of fun things to do with my kids. I laugh more, and enjoy things that I never enjoyed before. For the first time, deep in my soul, I am so excited about my future. I’m no longer worrying that I will get worse or that I will reach the end of my strength and end up giving up. And when I look in the mirror, I no longer see the deep pain in my eyes. 

All the early morning workouts, the healthy food, the shakes, and the discipline to do the incredibly hard things have paid off. It didn’t happen over night, but it was worth every effort and heartache along the journey. 

It all started with one decision to change my life, and many prayers along the way. If we show up, willing to do whatever it takes to have a better quality of life, God will guide us in the right direction. He will put the right people in our lives, at the right time, with the right information to help us.  

If you’d like to know more of what I’ve done, please send me a message. I’d be happy to answer your questions. 

Love and blessings, 


Candida
