Life isn’t always beautiful, but it certainly has been quite a ride thus far. The rough times in life has made me appreciate the wonderful ones, made me realize just how strong and capable I really am. The wonderful moments remind me just how blessed I truly am. Today we went to a family reunion. Spending the time with my family certainly filled my heart with joy. I loved spending time with my family. There were people there that I haven’t seen in a very long time. There were some bittersweet moments as well, most especially when talking with my grandma. She’s not the same woman I remember growing up. She kept forgetting who I am and that was very difficult for me to deal with. However, I am glad that I got to spend time with her. My cousin Lisa said that we’re going to do this every year. I certainly hope that we’re able to arrange that because we don’t get to see one another that often. Each moment spent with my family, each member, is precious. I have another reunion next month, that time will be for another side of my family. I am excited for that one as well. I am most pleased that my son gets to see his family, get to know them, and spend time with them. He had fun today and looks forward to next month as much as I do. Family is important and it’s in times like these that remind me that petty differences aren’t important and we ought to cherish each moment that we have to be together. I feel the same way about my friends as well. They are the part of my family that I got to choose. Chosen or not, they are all special to me. I hope to remember to cherish them every day I have left on this planet. I want to make the most out of life, enjoy it, have fun, be successful, and spend time with those that I love that love me. I encourage you all to do the same….don’t waste your days being angry, spiteful, bitter, or holding onto the past. We all get angry, hurt, jealous, and find ourselves doing and saying things we shouldn’t….but one must bounce back from all of that and keep moving forward. I have to keep telling myself this every single day because yes, there are days it gets difficult to think happy thoughts. We all have really rough days, it’s an unfortunate part of life. I am not here to say that life is going to be all sunshine, kittens, your team winning the Super Bowl, or that fat bonus on your paycheck. However, I am here to say that when the tough times happen, you must find a way, no matter how difficult it might be to do so, to push through. Pray, talk to those you love and trust, listen to music, take a walk, scream, cry, sing, dance, write, draw, cook, or maybe just take a nap….something….but just get through, don’t give up and don’t let the negative win, no matter how much easier it might seem to do so. We have but this one life to live, don’t waste it, but make it wonderful, one worth remembering. ❤

    Does your grandma have some sort of Alzheimer’s? Mine does and we constantly have to remind her of who we are.
