Old thoughts

Before I walked out the door this morning I grabbed three of my old (incomplete) journals. Not really sure what I was going to do with them while I’m at work, its been a pretty crazy week and it’s only Wednesday. While I should be working I’m flipping through one and noticed there are dated entries of 2012. Like nine whole years ago. As I am reading what I had written on paper I can’t believe the place I was in. My dad and nephew both passed unexpectedly the year before, it was the 5 year anniversary of my mom’s death and I lost my niece(my namesake) to a drowning accident. 2012 was pretty rough for me but I pulled through scars, scrapes, bruises and all. Looking at these words, I wanted to give up a few times but all those people I lost pushed me forward. I encourage you to journal your thoughts because it allows you to go back and see how far you’ve come. Tomorrow is what would be my nieces 25th birthday and I wish she was here. Happy Birthday Aunties Baby girl.

    I was thinking this is a great way to get to know someone when they are willing to open up and let others in their space.
    Thank you sister.
    You are a Queen 👑 and I love you.❤️❤️❤️
