2017 has been a year of…growing…to put it gently, and my recent get away to visit my gal pal out in Northern California I can safely say DAMN IT FEELS GREAT TO BE HAPPY.
Ok, so maybe that was a little extreme but after the last year and a half of ups and downs it has been a truly humbling experience to really look back and see my strength and happiness grow.
We all go through things in our lives that challenge us, that push us, that make us think we can’t get up off of the floor…but that is a small portion, in a long chapter, in a long ass book that we call life. I have taught myself not to regret things, not to hate things or people, and to just let go and breathe…I have learned to value those traits the older that I get and I can’t explain how much happier of a person I am because of them.
When your mind is clear and you can bring the focus back on yourself you are able to see things and make decisions that you might have been overlooking in the past and that is when you can make some incredible progress for yourself.
A friend recently sent me a link to a write up by Jason Connell and I suggest reading (as it was so appropriately suggested to me) and instead of paraphrasing it, just go read it yourself and take a walk outside this weekend and get some fresh air.
