After hearing the news of the passing of one not much older than me. I have reached a realisation.
Life is way to short.
I have been letting the ones who have walked away from me have too much of my headspace and allowing them to cause me heartache.
I am going to cherish those that walk alongside me. My pretty awesome husband Alan and my beautiful children. My fantastic dad and stepmom who are always there for me and of course my amazing friends.
I have had old friends come back into my life which I am so grateful for. People who I have missed dearly.
I have made new friends that now feel like they have been in my life forever.
I have a new church family and a place where my husband has found his faith, which I am so very blessed by.
I have been welcomed into a new community of plus size bloggers who have shown me that I am beautiful whatever my size. They have given me confidence I have never had.
I have friends that have stood by me for many years. Being a light in the darkness. Special needs parents, grieving parents all have walked along side me.
I am truly blessed.
2014 is going to be my year of moving forward.
