These past many months, our family has experienced the roller coaster that is life. Brain tumor, high school graduation, college, surgeries, job changes, homesickness, wedding shower planning, car accident, emergency room visits, doctor visits, medical treatments, and so much more. Through it all, we managed to forget to take care of us. We let the bad outshine the good. We quit doing things we love to do- blogging, dancing, golfing, going out with friends, and spending time with each other. That's not okay.
Life is going to have good and bad. Sometimes the stuff we have to go through is out of our control. That doesn't mean we have to get so caught up in the bad that we forget to keep living. Right?
I plan to get back to the things that make me smile. I need to take care of me now. I want to write. I need to blog. I have accepted that I can't control everything, but I am in charge of my own happiness.
It feels great to be back.
