Ok, that part after the ampersand may not be true, but I’m feeling good. I needed a break from this space. A lot fell apart – and came together after my last post. Losing my Grandpa was hard. It’s hard because it’s one of those losses where people expect it and they also expect you to quickly get over it too. Grandparents “have lived a full life” typically. Which is true! And there is a lot of peace in knowing that he is with my Grandma… but there’s also a lot heartache knowing I’ll never see him again on this side of heaven.
And I just miss him.
And I allowed his death to be an excuse to let a lot of things go. Partly, my health. My spending. My focus on growth and self-care in every sense of that term. But 2017 is a new year and I’m ready for a great one. Life isn’t always easy, it’s never perfect, but the imperfections and hard times have catapulted growth. And I gave myself grace to take time away but I’m excited to post here more and share in this 2017 journey. You never know what is around the corner of life, but I feel I’m in a much better place now.
I’m back & better than ever. :-)
