Good morning, friends!

I apologize for so much time between posts but I’m doing my best to deal with the things life has tossed at me. I can tell you that the grieving process is rather unpredictable.

If you’re a reader or know me personally you know my routine…. sitting in the hammock chair on the balcony is how most of my thoughts begin.

So, I made a simple post on Instagram. I shared a meme. It was something that struck a chord in me so I thought I’d share. It was a simple meme. I’m not even responsible for penning it.  But I shared it. And the response has been incredible. It lead to what I will write.

I want to be brave and say a million things. Tattletale everything in my heart and on my mind. But I’m afraid of the consequence. But then people started to message me….

I can’t tell you how many people I know and certainly don’t know, that suffer from life. Yeah. From life. We live strong, love fully and get broken, hard.

And we settle.

For what’s left.

And we breathe to survive.

And we eat. Not tasting.

And we work. To pay bills.

And we go from day to day not remembering anything or making any memories.

And time passes.

Wasted.

And we look back. At what was.

And we wish for more.

And dream forward.

At what could have been,

If only…

And we sit.

And time ticks.

And we.stop.living…..

And yet wake each day just to do it again.

That was my life. My existence. The crumbs I accepted.

Friends, why do we do that? Why do we think that if we just make it through today, to next week, to the weekend, the new job, the new whatever! that things will be better?

I’m telling you, they won’t! We have to take charge of our own lives and make the changes within ourselves to create the lives we want.

I did it. And I’m just realizing what taking a chance will do.

My story is ever evolving and I have so much more to tell.

But for now, please friends, don’t give up your dreams. Don’t believe that what is is all that will ever be. Things can and will get better if you take the chance to make the changes.

Continue to be kind, continue to dream. Don’t give up on yourself or the life you are meant to live!

I will try to be back soon…..I’m still working on me.
