There are so many things that can change. Relationships, attitudes, feelings, jobs, the weather, so many things. Sometimes i have to breathe and remind myself that change is just part of life. Some changes are great while others are not so great. I am so very fortunate to have such amazing family and friends to help me and support me through any changes that are thrown my way. You never really realize how many people actually care for you and love you until you need them the most. They just appear and clear their schedules out of no where.
I just went through probably one of the most painful breakups of all time (i know i know everyone says that) but honestly, it was hurtful for me. I swear to the sweet lord that so many people, who i didn’t even think knew i existed, were there for me. You would seriously think i am in mourning with all the food i have been offered lately. 🙂 Even though it took me two weeks (minimum) to pull my life back together and be able to function (i still cry in public) haha. I keep reminding myself that beautiful things can come from this, and its all in the way you react to it.
People come and go through out your life. They teach you things about who you are. Some are meant to stay forever and some are meant to only stay for a while. I am thankful for the time that taught me more about myself than I could ever imagine. As long as you take a lesson learned from every experience, it is worth all the pain and heart ache.
Life will never be easy or a coast, but who would want it to be? The harder you fight for something and the harder you work for something, the greater the accomplishment is. So YOU keep smiling and I will keep smiling and bring on the next BIG thing 🙂
This evening i stumbled across the http://100happydays.com/#go website, while surfing the web. OMG! Genius. I do have to applaud whoever came up with this. Happiness is a very very important part of everyone’s life. I don’t care who you are, life is better when you are happy, that is just obvious. Two years ago I met a person that just started working with me, she was and still is, probably the happiest person i have ever met. She could get excited about Mango’s, I’m not kidding that happened once. I once asked her why she was so happy all the time, she told me “because there is so much to be happy about”. She taught me to be a happier person by just hanging out with her 8-5 Monday through Friday. I owe her my ability to look at every day with positive thoughts and happiness. I am super excited to start the 100 happy days challenge, i cant wait to share with all my Instagram followers what makes me happy for 100 days straight, yippie 🙂 XXX Kimber
