Isaiah 40:31

31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

You Raise Me up!




I hope you found your way from my previous blog address without any difficulty.  I have been thinking about moving for a few months, but hadn’t wanted to change addresses because if I had begun to build  a few followers I didn’t want them to get frustrated or confused with a sudden change.  In the end I decided to make this change because it is what I wanted to do and I felt like I needed to have a fresh start with a new blogging direction. As the end of yet another quarter came to an end I realized how horribly I had been balancing all parts of my life.


I realized how unhappy I had become with writing my blog, so much so that I didn’t want to write anything. After pondering this fact and mourning the loss of this writing outlet I realized why I no longer wanted to write. I had placed myself into a genre of blogs but was not focusing on everything that makes me a healthy person.  From the time my finals finished till the time I decided to start this new blog was the wheel of health that I learned about while taking one of my many classes for a Certificate in Drug and Alcohol counseling I never pursued.

Like  many times before I began to forget about  a portion of my wheel.  The portion I most commonly forget is the spirituality and the relationships. I generally get so busy with other portions of my life I no longer make time to read scripture or to spend time with friends that does not include work or school. Also by writing only on working out and what I cook and eat I was bored.

So to help with this boredom I decided to clean the slate, though I decide what I do and don’t write on my blog I felt like I was locked into writing about my food life since that is what I had originally started writing at New GF Life. It was going to be all about my journey through Gluten free eating, but I am more than just a gluten-free eater as I shared with a child we all wear many labels.  I label myself as a woman, a supervisor, a cook, a student, an aspiring healthy eater, an aspiring workout guru (ok not guru but I don’t want to be a gym rat), a woman of God, and many more labels than I have time or energy to name. So  this is where a new blog address comes in.  Balancing Life and Love is where I am going to share all of my labels and be able to write more than weekly about what is going on in my life and where I can share my healthy living journey.  So I welcome you to a new adventure for 2011 to  Balancing Life and Love. 

Love and Sugarplums
