Life takes us all by surprise. We can never be sure what will happen. This has really hit home for me recently. On November 18, 2012 my daughter was stillborn. Since then my husband and I have been trying to get things back together for our family and figure out what our new "normal" is.

I am a type 1 diabetic, diagnosed four and a half years ago. Life has had many ups and downs for me since then as I have been coming to terms with being diabetic and trying to sort out what that means for my health. It's a rough journey but a journey just the same and I am taking it one step at a time.

I have a wonderful husband and a beautiful son who is about to turn 3 on Christmas Eve! They are the driving force behind so much of what I undertake in life! They keep me going!

I am a full-time student online and currently working my butt off to get the best marks I can get! I only have one more term left of school before I graduate and life will, yet again, be shifted as we create a new "normal."

There are so many things I want to do in my life and I am not willing to let my health stop me from experiencing those things. I am here to get a grip on my life again and live it to the absolute fullest! For too many years I have sat on the sidelines and watched my life pass me by because I was too afraid to partake in life. I might only be 25 but how much of life have I not enjoyed because I was too scared to get up and do something? I am no longer willing to let fears and insecurities hold me back! I am ready to get out there and do the things I want to do and shape the life I want to live and enjoy every up and down, every second of the life that I have!

Our lives are far too short to waste any of it wondering what if, or regretting the past or not engaging in the time we have now. I am ready to move forward and live my life! No more waiting! No more excuses! Just life!
