Beautiful People

February 10, 2012

There have been times in my life where I thought that my life couldnt get any worse. I have been through some things in my 31 years that most people go a lifetime without (and should go a lifetime without). When my life was at its lowest I couldnt imagine continuing on... I had no idea what my life would be like and how changes would affect me. Rather than taking that internally as a poison, I decided to embrace my life and use every negative as a positive. I have done my best to use the hurt, the pain, the sorrow into making me stronger and more passionate and its given me a new outlook on life. When bad things happen I do my best to really stand tall and be strong. Sometimes that works, and sometimes it doesnt... just like everything else...

I look at my life now and know that even if I told you all the things I have been through you may not believe me when I say that I am one of the luckiest women alive. I have been blessed to have people in my live who have the same values and morals as me. My parents, as I have said before are the two most influential people in my life. The relationship I have with them is indescribable. My husband, my brother,  my friends, my family... they all stand by me when I need someone to lean on or talk to... or when I have a weak moment and I can not thank thank them all enough for that.

I love the fact that I know the people I have in my life are all important for their own reasons... when I have something I need to talk about I know which person to call. I love that I have growing relationships, old relationships, rekindled relationships... and all of them grow with every conversation, with every piece of advice and with every hug, laugh, smile and tear. I am blessed with beautiful people.

That was all pretty deep for a Friday but I had the BEST night with my brother Eric tonight. I love you, I look up to you, I am so thankful for our relationship and I am so thankful that I am in this life with you. You are my inspiration.
