Life is not always fair. There are times when we want things that the universe is not ready for us to have. There are times when we want to keep things that the universe has decided we've had long enough. Life is not always pleasant, but we have to look at where we are and compare it to where we've been. Situationally, we may be in a similar position but we need to look deep into our own minds and hearts. We need to give ourselves credit for the distances we've gone and the growth we've accomplished.
We must always be grateful for what we're given when it's given to us. We must be grateful for the opportunities and the time we have.
Losing loved ones is hard. You may feel extreme sadness or even feel numb. You may want to get angry at the time you think you lost. The truth is, though, that you haven't lost anything. You've gained so much from the time you did have. It takes a long time to truly work through all of the feelings you have, but I encourage you to put some energy into this: All things, even bad things, happen for a good reason.
Process and a grow. Never let the hard things distract you from your purpose and your truth.
I love you, my beautiful people.

Working a full time job, raising two daughters, attempting to have a social life, trying to make my family proud, and trying to make myself proud are things I do every day. I'm now beginning my journey of giving. This is step one.
