The Changes In My Life

I think that when we make changes in our lives we have to have the  desire so badly to make them and to see them through. For me it took several long years to actually figure out who I was and what I wanted. At first I thought that I wanted to be married, so I married David Garcia June 5th, 2004.  I started smoking cigarettes in 2002 and by 2007 I was smoking 2 packs maybe more a day. I was not going to church either. There were days I just did not know who I was, and that was scary.

So, I decided after the help of my sister and her family's help, plus the love and suppurt from my Aunt's, Uncle's and Cuz's I started to make changes. some big ones. I moved to Utah in March of 2007, seperating from my husband.

I stopped smoking, and started going back to church and to learn who was Marie Anntoinette Rowley. Now its three years later, and I know who she is. She is a brave, smart women who can over come anything that comes into her life with the lord on her side. She is an active member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, her relationship with her siblings is better then ever, (now that I can finally be with my family). I am losing weight and taking care of my self better then ever, I feel great, better then great fantastic. I know actually who I am and what I want.


I am still married but working on getting a divorce, as soon as I have the money, then I am going to the Temple, I can’t wait to walk through those doors, The first Temple that I am going to go to is Manti. (my mother’s favorite Temple, she went there when ever she had the chance, and I will to)

I am always going to be looking for the open door and for any opportunity that comes my way. As the changes come in my life I will open my arms to them and learn. I know that with Faith, Hope, the Holy ghost and the lords help that I will make it through anything, Plus, If my big bother Jesus Christ can go through all that he did, so can I. I can walk through any storm that comes my way….

For he is My Lighthouse, he will guide and direct me....
He will be there for me in my hour of need. For that I am truelly blessed.
I love this picture so much. I just have to look at it and it gives me HOPE.

I was late checking into SITS today too and stopped by to say hello. I'm so glad you continue to seek out who you are. I hope your journey into whom you are self improvement continues to thrive and that you hold fast to Jesus - he IS the way - seems so simple - why is it that we always seem to remember that AFTER we've failed so many times. Siigh - guess that's our sinful nature.

Have a wonderful day.
