Ah the holidays!
I'm thrown off completely that it's 55 degrees outside instead of snowy, but whatever.
During this time of year I get awfully reflective. Normally, in the past, I have focused on what I struggled with rather than with what went well.
Well guess what?
I can't really think of any huge struggles this year!!!
Is this possible?!?! This is me we're talking about here....
But yes, it's not only possible, but it's TRUE!
In trying to figure out that magic formula of going with the flow and living a positive, healthy, happy life, I seemed to have stumbled across it. Somehow.
Perhaps it was all the work I've done on myself the past few years? I have come from a place of not liking my wimpy take-the-back-seat self, to being angry with myself about wasting time in negativity, to just, quite simply, being happy.
This is not to say that I haven't had any struggles this year - I have. Everyone does. But I have handled them in a more positive way than I ever have before.
I have let go of hurt.
I have let go of things I can't control.
I have focused on the amazing people in my life - there are a LOT of them!!!
I have enjoyed the small things. And the big things! And the small things that are big things to me and my family.
And all those things in between.
And I have found peace and joy and happiness and lots of love and laughter along the way.
So thank you friends, for sticking with me. I am grateful for you every day.
Thank you family, for holding me up. And challenging me. And loving me all the time.
Thank you, Sean and TJ and Peter - you are my heartbeat. You are my everything, every day.
And thank you all, for just....all of it.
