Reboot Day 27
Tuesday, December 11, 2018
This last year has been real trying for me, but it is almost to the finish line and the New Year will begin with more adventure. I have been sitting at my desk for the past 3 hours looking at pictures of the family and reflecting the ups and downs that have come our way this year. Missing loved ones who are no longer here, to those that are segregating themselves from the family, to new life, whether a child is born or just starting over with something new. I can only quote my best friend and brother who passed last October, "Life has it's ups and downs, but it builds character my dear. Live life to make YOU happy, not anyone else." I used to get so irritated when he would tell me this, because every time something bad, crazy, weird etc. would happen he would just say, "It builds character." Now I look back and he was right, it makes you who you are. You live and you learn. I am just grateful that I have a chance to build that character that I want to be. Choosing to be happy for ME and doing what I need to do to make that happen. Whether losing weight or just doing fun stuff or buying things that I want, I work hard for what I do and I will no longer make others happy first, it will be ME! At first I would think it was selfish putting my needs before others, but now that I think for ME, i feel so relieved and then I am able to help those that need me.
Will Smith has a video out there about fault vs responsibility https://www.bing.com/videos/se

I don't ever want to go back to worrying about anything else, because it consumes you, causes stress. I am so thankful and very blessed for my life and the things and people that have been brought in and out of my life. I give it all to God.
Thank you for reading my blog. Have a wonderful day.
