I am one blessed person.

The people I'm surrounded by couldn't be any more supportive than they already are. From my family, friends, Danny, to my co workers....

Everything will be okay because I have them.

Our Story

I love life and all of the individuals in it. All of our stories are different.

I would've loved to have the traditional life where I ended up with my high school sweetheart. But things happen for a reason. For all the 5-6 years we were together definitely contributed to the woman I am today, anything longer than that would've been wasted time. Wasted time because when you realize your values and priorities aren't aligned with your partner's, how could you build a future together?

Time spent with others (men/boys, friends, and family) and myself made me realize a lot (notice, I didn't say everything). I realized who I wanted in my life, what I wanted out of my life, and what I needed to do to get there. Came up with a plan and then...

Came him. On the day I had a huge shot taken to my ego. What I thought was going to be a good distraction with friends from what had happened earlier on in the day ended up being serendipity.

I feel new year's resolutions are corny and unnecessary just because why do you need to wait until a new year to start something....

But I've been thinking a lot about the person I was 10, 5, and even a year ago, and although I've definitely grown, I'm still not the person I want to be.

With having so many people walk in and out of my life, I've come to realize that the problem is me. With that realization, I've also realized how unbelievably blessed I am to continue to have people who've stuck with me through my worst mistakes (or life lessons if you prefer to be optimistic).

I'd like to call this my personal growth plan for 2013+...things I'd like to work on to become a better daughter, sister, family member, friend, significant other, colleague, and human.

But I can only do this with the help of the people in my life. EX: being w/Danny he calls me out on things I do that drives him insane or let's me know of a mistake so I'm AWARE of my actions. From there I try to get a hold of what my thoughts and feelings are before my actions and try to prevent it from happening. It's tough, it takes time, but it works.

I want to retain the ones who have stuck by me.
