Happy Monday pretties!
It's my birthday week.
The last birthday week I am ever celebrating...
On Thursday I will turn 29 so I figured I would start out this week on a really positive note:
Yesterday my Gran was going through pictures that she had found.
Pictures are truly a blessing.
They have been such a big part of my journey.
My middle daughter Shelby girl turned 8 yesterday.
Hard to believe.
When my Gran pulled the pictures out from her first birthday out I was in utter shock.
I could not wrap my head around just how much I have changed.
I have not seen these pictures in 7 years after all.
So much I had forgotten about the person I used to be.
The fake smile.
The bleached hair.
The extra 50 pounds I was carrying around day in and day out.
The daily tears.
Feelings of depression rolled over me with heavy waves.
It was hard to breathe...
And not just because I was carrying so much extra weight.
I feel so sad for the girl I was 7 years ago, but I feel blessed for the woman I have become today.
I might not be where I want to be, but I am closer and stronger than I have ever been.
So this upcoming birthday I will celebrate all that I have been able to accomplish...
I will NOT focus on what I haven't.
