Happy 17th birthday

Happy 17th birthday to the one who made me a mom and taught me so much. Jax doesn’t like to be recognized or his birthday, so I didn’t tell him Happy Birthday. I said Happy Friday the 13th, the same day you were born 17 years ago. He liked that. Then of course I said […]

5 Years Ago..

5 years ago my dad picked me up from jail. My fiancé at the time was starting a new job so he surely wasn’t going to pick me up. My fiancé was newly sober and I had went to the beach house and got a DUI. Honestly I’m glad it happened. It was the wake […]

Freedom

The last time I drove by myself with a license was 3 years, 8 months and 25 days ago. Today feels like freedom. Self reliance. Being able to drive to get a coffee or to wherever I need to go and not relying on others. I definitely won’t be driving like I once did, I’m […]

Toxic Positivity

Absolutely love this book I am listening too right now by a therapist. It highlights so much truth in just the 25% I am into it. I don’t believe in toxic positivity, I don’t believe it is in gods hands and that’s my belief and it’s ok if we have different beliefs. I do not […]

New Year, New Goals

I’m not a believer in New Years Resolutions. I am a believer in goals, all year long! I write them down daily to remind myself and often cross them off as I accomplish them. I registered for two runs today. I can run a mile. But I need to get back into shape and creating […]

Happy New Year!

2021 was definitely not what anyone expected, nor was 2020. 2022 here we are! The last 2 years have taught me SO much. The last three and a half years taught me so much more. What’s important. What’s not important. What deserves my energy and time, what does not. So many losses, so many gains. […]
