And So it Begins.......

What can I really say about the past year except that it was an unusual and amazing ride!!!
You just never know what life may throw at you, all you can do is just be prepared to enjoy the adventure!!!

Like many, I wondered what 2017 would bring considering all the chaos that was happening all around. One thing for sure, I was determined not to let it get the best of me or affect me negatively in any way. I had made a turning point in my life where I just wanted to live a life of gratitude, shedding the negativity and embracing the blessings that were being bestowed upon me. Shedding doubt and replacing it with faith. Turning self-defeating thoughts into thoughts of encouragement and empowerment.

Though I don't believe in religion, I do believe in a higher power and I believe that we are meant to seek out the path to unconditional love and peace. We have a choice, do you take the path to love or do you take the path to hate. Do you wish to live a joyful life or do you seek out misery? The choice is totally up to you. As the saying goes, if you think you're going to fail, you will and if you think you're going to succeed you will.

I choose to look at the present and the future in a positive way, especially because so many blessings have been bestowed upon me as a result. One of them is a wonderful, handsome and charming man coming into my life along with a beautiful addition to my family, his daughter.

I thought that when my son Blake went off to college, I would become an empty nester and the thought of that sadden me but now I have another wonderful child to love and care for.

So begins a new chapter in my life.
