I’m going to be completely honest here. No matter what I show on the outside, inside I’ve been having a hard time. For one reason or another I’ve been feeling my Mom’s death more lately. It’s not the anniversary, not her birthday, yet I can’t help but grieve her more and more lately.
So why am I bumming you out? Welp, in spite of the sadness, I’ve enjoyed many joyous moments, usually thanks to my amazing friends and wonderful partner, Fletch.
Loss is something that never goes away. It’s like a roller coaster. Sometimes you’re on a high and can speak about the one who passed easily. You laugh, remember, and honor them. Other days a commercial or a song will make you fall apart. It’s the most difficult thing I’ve dealt with so far.
So yeah, the last month has been hard. But it’s also been really amazing. I went to the fair with Fletch and my big bro, I went to Canada for the first time, I saw a ton of amazing people at GeekGirlCon, and so much more!!
I’m a lucky lady. Everything that has happened in my life, every hardship, disappointment, moment of pure bliss, has made me who I am today and who I am is pretty awesome. I’m reminded of that by all of those who love me.
Life is hard and things can really suck. We all have our own battles and challenged we have to overcome. If we can stay strong and maintain hope, nothing is impossible.
Love you all and thank you for always being so incredibly wonderful.
