To say I am shocked that people still read my stuff is an understatement.
Thank you for sticking with me after months and months of me standing you up....kinda sorta.
I am so effing happy that 2014 is almost over. Next to losing my daddy in 2012, this year has completely sucked big fat hairy balls and can ride off into the sunset and be forgotten.
Just like jelly shoes....
....and Rainbow Brite.
Despite the crappyness of the past 6 months, I have been told by many, many people that I seem more relaxed and happier than I ever have been.
The truth is, I was living a life that I did not enjoy. I tried my hardest to be the person I thought I should be. I tried my hardest to make others happy.
But realized that I was not living the life I wanted. I was not the person I wanted to be. I was not happy. It took a big fat punch to my gut for me to realize it, but, who cares now. I realized it and acted on it because if I know anything after losing my daddy, it is that life is too fucking short to be unhappy.
*side note. I did not get punched in the gut. It just felt that way at the time.
Soooooooo........my plan for 2015?
To be me.
To find happiness. I am already starting.
To live simply.
To love harder than I have ever loved before. Myself and others.
To be a happy mom for my kids, even if it means saying no sometimes and teaching them that life isn't always rainbows and candy.
To get a job. HA.
Amen Hallelujah to new beginnings.
