The past two years have been a ride that has brought me to My Moment of Yes. My husband and I have overcome some pretty heavy and negative situations. Things that could easily make anyone spiral. The best thing that has come out of all of it has been how much our relationship has grown together. We have become an incredibly strong family and I have fallen more in love with my husband and kids than I knew I could.
My Moment of Yes
As a mom and a wife, seeing my husband make it out stronger on the other side of things has been nothing short of inspiring. This was the beginning of My Moment of Yes. He did not let hurtful situations create bigger monsters by giving into anger or hurt. Rather he took a stand for me and our family. He inspired me to come together as a team and make a real lifestyle change from all of this.
In our lifestyle change we have decided to make better choices in our foods, stress less, and cherish family even more than before. We refuse to let negative people and situations affect the amazing life we have. It has only made us want to improve it beyond what we thought was imaginable. My Moment of Yes was empowering when I could let go of things I cannot control and took full control of the things I can. Yes, I can control how people make me feel. Yes, I can rise above the obstacles that others try and place in front of me. Yes, I can guarantee that in this New Year of 2018, this is going to be the best we have seen yet.
Your Moment of Yes this New Year
If you are going through rough situations in your life I beg you to not let it completely place you in a place of “no”. Make it a place of “yes” in the New Year plans! Take these steps to make lifestyle changes that are positive. Make life-changes from life’s lemons.
Focus on What You Can Control
You cannot control a lot of what happens in life from the actions of others. However, you can control your reaction. You can control how things affect you and what you take from life’s lessons. I like to think that I never fail at things. I learn from them. Take control of what you can and drive that so hard into what you want to make it that nothing can stop you.
A Healthier Lifestyle is the Foundation
A healthier lifestyle was the foundation of My Moment of Yes. When you chose to truly acknowledge what you are putting into your body to fuel it, you find that it also fuels your mind and emotions. Ever since my husband and I have begun making better choices in our foods I have noticed that our heart rates have come down from the 90’s to 70’s, we both sleep better, and we overall feel better. Knowing that we are giving our kids examples they can look up to is encouraging.
Lunchtime can be tough for both myself and my husband. I am a work-at-home mom and my husband works full-time outside of the home. We often forgot to take time for ourselves but not eating is the worst thing you can do to yourself. That is when we found Well Yes!®. Our new favorite line of soups made with nutritious ingredients. It is “A Soup in the Right Direction®”!
Well Yes! soups are made with nutritious ingredients, like chicken meat with no antibiotics, sweet potatoes, kale, and quinoa. As a mom, I love that they are made with non-GMO ingredients and the cans contain non-BPA lining. Each can of soup equates to two-servings so it can easily be enjoyed by you and a loved one. My husband and I enjoy sharing a can of Chicken Noodle on a cold day after working outside in the yard and feeding our chickens. Good foods, like Well Yes!, make for a simple way to make better choices to a healthier lifestyle change that creates a happier you.

Cut Out the Negative, Keep the Joy
It is okay to say “enough” to negative influences in your life. If someone or something is creating hurt for you it is time to remove them. This opens up so much more joy for those who are a positive influence in your life. It blows my mind how much focus we give to negative people. I am guilty of it.
I always thought people were like me and my family. We got things on the table and worked things out without gossip or getting people involved that didn’t need to be. I was naive because I learned this year that I and my family are a minority in that thinking and we shouldn’t be. Get rid of that in your life if it is there. No one needs to feel the weight of others who only wish to lower the bar of others to raise their own. Be with those who lift you up and free so much of your heart for them that you won’t even know where to put all of the joy and love. I promise you that the quick moment of cutting the negative out will open up a lifetime of happiness.
Never Let The Whispers Keep Your from Saying “Yes”
Most of all, never let the whispers keep you from saying “yes”. Don’t let someone control what YOU want to be or do. Don’t look over your shoulder waiting for the judgment. I have done that for far too long. People judge what they cannot do. There is no better person to say “yes” to than yourself. Never let anyone keep you away from being the very best you.
Take these empowerment starters and make this Your Moment of Yes. My Moment of Yes was when I realized that I couldn’t let others control me and that I have an amazing team with my husband. Our family is stronger than ever and I am thankful for the hard times. Yes, they were hard. Yes, they were life-changing but in the end, they changed our lives for the better. We are now focused on a healthier lifestyle filled with better choices. Better choices in our food, better choices in our friendships, and better choices in ourselves. You can be this too!
