Seriously? How in the world are we halfway through the year already?
2013 has been an absolute whirlwind thus far. My dog [best friend] died on January 1st and I had a feeling that was setting the tone for the entire year. I was right- I just had no idea how bad things were going to get. I apologize for how vague I’ve been about the things I’ve gone through but I don’t think my blog is the ideal place to open up about family issues. Plus, the gritty details don’t really matter.
All of the crap comes down to one thing..
We can’t control it and it will never go the way we’ve planned. All we can do is try to stay positive, surround ourselves with people that make us happy, do the things that bring us bliss, and smile.
Has this year been difficult? Yes. But I’ve learned more about myself than I ever thought possible. I’m in a better place (mentally, emotionally, and physically) than I have been in years. It seems completely impossible but it’s true and it’s proof that everything happens for a reason.
My sister is staying with me again right now (summertime perks!) and that, combined with my short trip home, has resulted in an amazing week. Lindsay and I are actually working on starting a YouTube Channel which we’ve talked about doing for months. We’re having a blast! We’ve filmed quite a few videos and we’re planning to launch the channel in a few days- I can’t wait!
Here’s a little sneak peak…
Anyways, that’s where my life is at right now. I’ve discovered happiness and confidence within myself, surrounded myself with unbelievable people, and just I let go. And that feels damn good.
Here’s to making the 2nd half of 2013 even better than the first…
