After one of the longest, saddest, most stressful and trying years of my life I decided no longer would I allow life to just happen to me. My life was mine! Things happening is inevitable however how I allow them to affect me was my decision.
I was allowed to be angry. I could cry if I wanted to…even lay on the couch (I have two kids so that didn’t last long) and sulk. My whole 2013 was on “the couch”…figuratively speaking. Being a single mother being able to work through emotional things isn’t easy due to the fact that you have to be “present”. In this time I did what was absolutely necessary. I will be honest…I washed clothes as needed, I cleaned as needed and I did what I could to make it through the day. It was a rough year! Based on conversations I have had with my children they didn’t seem to notice. However, I felt like the worst mother.
So long story short…at the beginning of 2014 I got up off of my figurative couch, dusted myself off and moved on with life. This is one of the best quotes I read after that year…just wanted to share a short snippet into me…
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday! 🙂
Do you have a quote that you just love and can feel down in your bones?
