It's easy to believe that we always have our best interest at heart because why would we be doing anything to self-sabotage the one person who is closest to us. I think that the only way to know for sure if you are doing your absolute best to improve your life is to look at the choices you make for yourself everyday. There is no better determining factor to use than to see your everyday routine and the way you handle life's stresses and by seeing the results that show up in your life continuously. The choices we allow are what make up daily life for us. Are we happy with the results? Maybe we are happy with the life we have but certain aspects are lacking because we just haven't put that one thing that really needed attention as a priority. It does have a spiral effect if you let too many of these priorities fall off the list and you'll find yourself not really honoring yourself and your family as much as you think you are. Healthy decisions are number one because anything that could potentially harm you by causing emotional or physical distress is not going to help anyone in the long run. Sometimes it takes a nice long walk or conversation with a friend or loved one to decide if you are happy with the way things are or if you could be making life altering choices one day at a time. The great way to look at it is that there is never a wrong time to make the right changes to put you on track to living the best life possible!
