Finding out you’re pregnant sparks a number of emotions- you’re excited, nervous, emotional, and over joyed that you get to bring a new life into the world.  There is so much to think about in preparation for your new bundle of joy, but in the midst of all these sensations and feelings, there is someone you cannot neglect- you!  During your pregnancy, keeping those emotions in check is important, and that all starts with you.

            Holidays: the days marked on our calendars that we look forward to, the events that bring people together, and the affairs in which we celebrate tradition. 

            Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Easter, or New Year’s Eve, we are constantly using these bold days on our calendars as an excuse to spend time with the people we care most about.  Usually, there are messages everywhere reminding us of the true meanings of these holidays.  And rightfully so, we need the reminders in today’s world to keep us grounded.  But Independence Day is different.

           From the time we were born, our lives have been a running string of balancing real world tasks, and the breaks we take between those tasks.  As children we took breaks from playing by taking naps or enjoying a snack, in school we celebrated winter break, spring break, and (everyone’s favorite) summer break.  Now our breaks could be as short as stepping away from the office desk for fifteen minutes, or as long as a vacation away from home for a couple weeks.

 

            We are constantly watching the clock or the calendar for these long awaited breaks in our days...

            Selflessness might be handing over those few dollars you have in your wallet to the homeless man on the corner, or paying for the person behind you in the drive through line, or even the things you do for your own children.  You know the way your heart feels...

          For the next five weeks the gyms will be crowded with the “New Year resolutioners” attempting to achieve their goal of losing those extra pounds, getting healthier, and getting rid of that extra holiday weight. For those of you who are already regulars at the gym, good for you, keep up the good work, but for the next several weeks, hopefully you’re ready to wait in line for a treadmill. If you’re one of those goal setters, challenge yourself even more than you already are.

          To you, the biggest struggle right now might be getting out of bed and...
