The most important thing in life is your family. There are days you love them, and others you don’t. But, in the end, they’re the people you always come home to. Sometimes it’s the family you’re born into and sometimes it’s the one you make for yourself – Sex & the City

I have the very best family and friends that a person could ever ask for. I am truly blessed to be able to call my mother and my sister my very best friends. Without them I’d be nothing. They have always been there for me a long the way. My mother is such an inspiration to me; I strive to be just like her every day. Her strength and courage is always my guiding light. I love you mommy! My sister is the opposite of me and I love her for that. I don’t know what my life would have been like without her. When I needed advice, she was the one that was there. When I wanted to steal someone’s clothes, they were her clothes I stole. I always looked up to her and her individuality. I am thankful for my cousin Vanessa who was always there to lend me her shoulder. When I needed a laugh, I could call on her. Despite our epic fights/battles, we have somehow made it along the way. I also have some great friends that God granted me with (that are not related to me). These girls have truly been so great to me over the years/months/weeks. They have been there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on, a friend to dance with, a friend to have chips and salsa with, someone to do the SWOOP with, someone to call my biffle or just someone to laugh with. When I’ve had the hardest times, they were there for me without question. They answer my phone calls, texts, emails and are just amazing. I love you guys and appreciate everything you guys have done for me a long the way. Whenever you need me, I will always be there. Love you girls (Michelle, Melanie, Georgia, and Jeannie).

Decided I should start cooking more and eating out less. Starting the diet again has been hard but I’m pushing through it! Drank over 77 oz of water today (: Took some pictures of what’s been made so far.

Monday – Chicken Cordon Bleu, broccoli and cheese and red potatoes.

Tuesday – Sirloin steak (didn’t take a picture)

Wednesday – Pork chops with vegetables (The rice and beans were for Joe) and delicious mini chocolate chip cookies.

The past can hurt. You can either run from it or learn from it – Rafiki

People tell you to forget the past but that’s what made us who we are today. The past shaped our relationships, our friendships, the way people treat us and the way we respond to people. I think you can forgive but I don’t think you can ever forget. Lately, Memories of the past have been popping up in my head. I keep thinking why some things happened, why they went wrong. What did I do to deserve to be spoken to that way? What did I do to deserve the words that were said behind my back? Is it karma? Did I let people treat me that way for so long that I’ve just become blind to the things I don’t want to see? I’m trying not to dwell on it, but it’s hard not to when it feels like the wounds are still open and unhealed. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have closure with certain things and maybe this is the way it’s going to be until I get my answers. The past is just an anchor holding me back.

“The bad parts are never shown in the photo album, but it’s those bad parts that help us get from one happy photo to the next.“

Some times, when I’m not paying attention, he gives me those butterflies again. Stolen kisses while I’m cleaning, tickle fights, “I told you how much I love you right?,” laughing together over the cutest things our puppy does, and our little inside jokes. It’s in those moments that I realize what gets us from one fight to the next. From one kiss to the next. It’s those little moments that I’ll always keep close to my heart. ❤
