~Personal blog post~
This time of year always makes me nostalgic. No difference in this year, except everything… Me, in true fashion and form, am being transparent and open about my life in hopes it helps other people, as well. Life and love truly are what you make of them…
I have gone through the most remarkable transformation in the past few months and I really don’t know where this came from, but I am now living my happiest life I ever have as an adult…it’s pretty amazing. I almost let someone go from my life that should have never even been a question about his intentions there. I now don’t have any idea what I would do without him…and us…we have truly been through it all and are so much stronger and we are now connected in a way I never dreamed possible. It truly is miraculous and I am so happy!!!
My son has decided to go to college, and actually got an amazing scholarship to a wonderful school. That used to grip me with fear-him leaving home and me, but now thanks to the above mentioned transformations, I am truly happy for him and this new endeavor he will take on, and for the life I will have in his absence, it is still bitter sweet, but at least there is some sweet in that mix now instead of fear and dread. I am happy to have a partner by my side to soften the blow of empty nest syndrome!
I have lost family members this year to death, and to life…things change, people are not always who you think they are (or try to pretend to be) and I choose to not be around toxic people anymore. I will love them from afar and still be available, but it will not come above my well being. For the ones who have passed on, my heart aches for their absence. On the flip side, I have some friends in my life who are like family and they have gone through some really tough battles recently, but I am so excited to watch their transformations and the things they are going to accomplish in life. Sometimes you have to take a minute to breathe, then watch out world, it’s on!!
My business has been absolutely fabulous! I have had so many women in front of my camera who have stated it has been life changing for them, I can’t tell you how humbled that makes me feel…I am living a dream of getting to do this calling that, if someone would have told me five years ago when I started thinking about doing it, I would have laughed, who knew it would be as life changing for me as it has been.
December is notoriously my slow month, I am taking advantage of the down time and have a beach trip with my hubby, an overnight trip out of town with my son to see Hamilton, and a week long trip to Disney with my two favorite guys in January planned. Work hard, play hard lol!
Next year, I have big goals and plans, as usual…not really planning on stopping! Stay tuned and watch us go! I hope the next year brings all of you even half as much joy as I have in my life right now…if you find that you aren’t happy in your circumstances, then change them!! Life is TOO SHORT to ever settle for less!! Eat the cake 😀
