Today We Celebrate Life

Man, this time of year is hard. I can’t believe it has been 5 years. Year one I definitely questioned if I could make it to this point and here we are! Here is a look back over the last 5 years and “lessons learned” from my blog each year. Writing is my therapy and reading what I wrote is even better because it is proof of the progress, much like a before and after photo. I wouldn’t be where I am today without some very important people in my life. So thank you friends and family for your support and love. Cheers to...

Unconditionally

Everyone is going through their own journey and has endured pain. The amount pain influences decisions we make and when we hold onto pain, our outward actions tend to reflect that pain we feel inside. Everyone has been there. We’ve all been selfish, insensitive and hurt someone that was innocent. We are humans and being flawed comes with the territory. Lately I have been asking myself so many questions. How do you continue to love someone when they have hurt you so bad? So how do you forgive a person when everything inside of you wants...

Falling in Love with the Same Person, Every Single Day

Falling in Love with the Same Person, Every Single Day

Love is an undertaking, you have to feed it, nourish it and work like hell to make sure it thrives. I am convinced that love is to accept someone despite their imperfections and shortcomings. We live in a period wherein almost everything is disposable because replacing broken things is easier than trying to fix them. Most people don’t commit to relationship with someone for the same reason. Love is not an emotion, it is a decision. You wake up every morning not only thankful for another day but also thankful for the relationship you have with...

What Forgiveness Means

What Forgiveness Means

Perhaps one of our favorite poisons is not forgiving someone else. We go about life carrying the burden of resentment and bitterness inside. We hold on to this thinking that we are hurting the person who hurt us. Instead of wounding the other person, we end up hurting ourselves. I have struggled with forgiveness in my life. However, it is a choice that I am faced with when I feel like someone has done something wrong to me. I think it is something we can all strive for in our lives. Recently, I treated a friend in a way that wasn’t much...

3 Years Gone- Lessons Learned from Suicide

Anyone that has lost someone they love to suicide knows how the loss changes a person. It shakes your world in a way that no other death does.  The questions and thoughts consume your life. The act fills you with anger as you question why they would do that and leave so many behind, completely broken. I know these feelings and thoughts all too well. Three years ago today my life changed dramatically. Someone I loved deeply committed suicide and that is a day I will never forget.  I can tell you that there have been so many overwhelming...

What Would You Try in Life if You Knew You Couldn’t Fail?

What Would You Try in Life if You Knew You Couldn’t Fail?

This words in clip ask good questions, questions I think we should all be asking ourselves. Oh would you try if you knew, that you couldn’t fail? Oh would you dream if you knew, that your dreams had sails? There’s a gulf you can never give us, there’s a lot of fuel in you and below Would you give it all you got if you knew you would be loved? In a way, this question is also related to that one which you have probably heard a million times: What would you do if this was your last day on earth? These are two simple questions...

Year in Japan

Year in Japan

Today we have been in Japan 1 year. I wanted to take this time and reflect on where I currently stand. One thing I do know is that this last year has been full of a lot of ups and downs. It was an amazing year of new experiences and a new journey. It was also a year of trial and failure. Life isn’t easy but and everyone is dealing with their own things, but we are all in this together. Like many people, I don’t always know what my actions mean. I do know that in life I am doing the best I can with the information that I have. I...

First Love Yourself

First Love Yourself

Today I asked on Facebook: Question: What aren’t you doing that you should be doing (or doing more of)? For me that answer is blogging. I love to write. I think about so much throughout a day that writing it down slows the thoughts and helps me think through things. The last 4 weeks Matt and I have been working out and building a healthier lifestyle. In the process we have been working on loving ourselves more. We decided to work on this together because we do value each other and our relationship and we owe it to ourselves to be the...

Life Lessons… ohh and Happy Anniversary

I got onto Matt for not knowing it was his parents 50th Anniversary this year. Then a few days later to find out I missed my parents 25th anniversary and didn’t even know it. I talked to mom and said “don’t you have an anniversary coming up on the 20th”? Only to learn it was the 2nd of September and it was their 25th. Guilty as charged. So I decided in honor of my parents 25th anniversary, I would write 25 lessons I have learned from my parents and their marriage. Happy Anniversary Kids! Here is to 25 more!!! 1. Commit...
