The Simple Stuff

July 31, 2015

"Strength is gained in the struggle. We have to learn to stop being afraid of difficult things."

Life has definitely thrown me for a loop this past month. Going through some tough things AND taking care of a toddler AND having a job has really gotten to me. Honestly, I've been on one of the most emotional roller coasters of my life. Through this wild ride, I've quickly learned to take a deep breath and relax. Turn my mind off and enjoy what I have in life. Enjoy the blessings God has bestowed upon me.

At one point, I ended up letting life take over and I simply forgot to live. I forgot what it was like to have fun or have a passion. To act silly and forget all cares for one second. I can't remember the last time I was able to do just that. And it's sad. I'm only 22 and I don't know what it's like to be my age. I've been doing so many other things because that became my role in life. I'm the mom, the wife, the chef, etc. My day to day activities became so repetitive that I didn't even notice the life draining out of me and the problems beginning around me. Finally, after this wild ride I've had, things clicked. I knew right then that I needed a change. To change myself and how I pursue things, because I know I wasn't fully happy living the way I had been. I got so busy trying to be there and take care of everything for everyone else that I forgot to be there for myself. I then decided that it was time to work on me. To be a better mom, wife, friend, and person.

My goal for the next six months (and the rest of my life honestly) is to really live. Be outgoing. Be spontaneous. Be fun. Be so wonderfully nice that people just can't stand it. Be witty. Be true. And to be a handful of a bunch of other things. Because in life, we tend to take so much for granted. We are all guilty of it. But it is possible to turn things around. Because one day, within a blink of an eye, your whole life can change.

So, in all, don't be afraid to live and enjoy life! We only have one, so let's not waste it!
