OK Ethel…Here We Go!

Mary Beitz
I am a Daughter, a Sister, a Wife, a Mother of many, an Aunt, a Grandmother, an encourager, Friend & Confidante!!! I have been blessed with a positive perspective (for the most part…a work in progress in others), with a glass half full attitude and a sense of humour that has held me up in good times and bad. I have always appreciated being able to reach out, seek information, surrounding myself with women who believe in supporting one another, encouraging, sharing & mentoring. As I enter another season in my life I feel led to share some of the things that I have gleaned in my life so far on a larger stage. We will talk about Family, Friendship, Relationships, Children, Leadership, Compassion, Work, Food, Empathy, Responsibility, Menopause, Marriage, etc. May you be encouraged…laugh often! Ours is not a solitary journey. We women are relational creatures. I believe that we are the best support for one another! Here’s to a Beautiful New Friendship!!!

So tomorrow is the first day of dedicated, kick my butt, no excuses devotion to bringing my menopausal self into 2017…please disregard the sobbing!

I’m writing this today as part of my accountability journal (now out of the top drawer), set out the scale (*-%#$) and have gone public…you know who you are…with my goal! I have a number of girls friends who are incredibly dedicated to loving themselves enough to stop buying their own excuses…it’s my time!

My promise to you is to follow up in 30 days with my progress…if you don’t care, ignore this. My first victory is tomorrow morning…5:50am!

Pray for me…seriously!
