|one of the gorgeous shots our cousin, Amber, took of us during our holiday shoot.|
weeks fly by these days. i feel like the holidays were like a hurricane, and i'm already looking my sister's birthday (mid-february) in the face. not necessarily a bad thing, because time flies when you're having fun, right? but still, sometimes you just want to take a moment in. i always want to remember this time in my life. one day, i'll tell my kids, "your momma took a huge leap of faith, and landed on her feet. and then she took another leap." when i think about the past five years, and how i've changed as a person, my mind is absolutely blown. i was always myself, but now i'm less of a shell, and so much more depth. now, i value time, and lucidity, and sleep, and the gym, and people who accept me as i am and encourage me to grow. someone once told me that i never took into consideration where i came from. what they meant was that no matter how much i strove to be a better, more successful person, they would never let me fully spread my wings because i couldn't be better than them. i don't want, or need, or have people like that in my life anymore.
here's a little blast from the past. momma says she read one of my first posts from (OMG) EIGHT YEARS AGO and realized i did all the things i said i was going to do. from living with the ex, to working in hr at a university, to ending up in business. funny how that happened. :)
