I wanted to say hello and give you a little update on stuff...
I recently took the leap to ask for help.
I've gone to see someone for the last two weeks and although it opens up a lot in me that can be difficult, it is helping. I've come to realize that although life has given me lots of lemons, I am the most amazing lemonade-maker. I was dealt cards in my life that not many would have been able to overcome, but I did....and continually do. There are just times where it gets a bit overwhelming. I have to learn how to take care of me...again.
I not only made a call for therapy, but I picked up my cell and texted a few friends I've met through blogging to see if we can get together. I don't get together with people often enough. I look forward to sitting with some girls and just chatting about anything and everything. I don't know why, but I didn't think they would say "yes" when I asked if we could get together. But they both did...and happily.
I also said "yes" to someone who has asked me to have coffee before. She is someone I kept saying "no" to because I felt like I was bothering her...but decided last night, when she texted me, that I was being dumb. She genuinely wants to have coffee and spend time with me. That is what makes life sweet. Friends who never give up.
This blogging world is so much more than a blog...it is the community of friends I need.
I had the afternoon off from work yesterday and instead of picking up the kids early from summer day camp, my hubby and I went out for a date.
A real date.
Just the two of us.
It felt like a first date...and it was what I desperately needed. I needed to just be with him to talk and laugh...to hold hands and sneak kisses...to just be.
I took the leap...I am taking the much-needed baby steps to get better.
Thank you for last week.
Thank you for reading my post last week and not judging me.
Thank you for just being there for me.
After seeing that pin yesterday, I know that it was God's way of giving me that push to write again.
I hope to be on here more frequently...I've missed this.
I want to inspire...encourage...give love through my writing.
