Good afternoon readers; I know its been awhile since I wrote in this blog, and I sincerely apologize for that. There have been many family issues going on.I plan on getting back into the routine of writing a entry more often.
Here we are a new A New Year, 2015. I know for many of us, 2014 was a very difficult year, Remember that we are survivors though and we press on.A new start a blank page of new beautiful beginnings .today’s topic entry will be about Embracing Life, what is thrown our way the good, the bad and the ugly, that what we wish to forget.
At the beginning of last year, I chose a WORD, which would be my word for the year. last years was TRUST. This year’s word is “Embrace “This word would be my theme for the year, it would be a word I would focus on, reflect on and had personal meaning to my life. So as this new year is upon us once again, this is what I plan on doing.
2014 was a tough year for us, my husband lost his job, we lost our place to live, thankfully, we had amazing friends take us in and help us. The journey has been anything but easy. We did all we could to mae the changes we needed to make and we are happy to say those prayers have been heard, and were moving into our new place Jan 15th.
One thing this year has taught me is to focus on what really matters, I found a quote that speaks volumes of the message I’m trying to convey to you and it reads “Today is your day, to LET GO of things that no longer serve you” by Katherine Mayer
The quote goes hand in hand with the topic, I do not want insecurities or fears top hold me back. I want to EMBRACE! This year lets strive to embrace who we are, what our strengths are. I want to embrace all that God has planned for me, embrace who God wants me to be and where he wants us to go.
I encourage you all to embrace your depression; bipolar is like any other illness. let the stigma fall to the wayside and speak out your story. You matter your story matters don’t sit back and wait for others to riase awareness, were all part of the human chain, we all have a voice, its time we EMBRACE change, change for the better, change as individuals and climb out of ourselves and reach out more. What abetter world we would live in.2015 im embracing you im using my story to inspire others!
