It’s all about how we live our lives & How we make a difference

So much seems to have crossed my mind in the last few days and I like where these particular thoughts are going. I have let go of much of the stress that had continued to keep me over thinking and have started to really just be in tune with positive thinking and what I can do do make things, as much as possible, positive.

When I came home from my Sacramento trip I was surprised by a note from a friend, whom I haven’t seen in quite some time. Long story short, she came and kept Sammy (best friend) who was house/dog sitting company on NYE. She commented on how she thought my house was adorable and that she hoped I have a happy new year. Along with that she wrote, “…and remember, at this point, it’s all about how we live our lives and how we make a difference.” Too much surprise I almost started crying. I definitely was a little choked up. I think that was the greatest thing that I could have read at that point and can’t and could not express into words how much I appreciated it. It just goes to show the small things, really are what count when it comes to happiness and making a difference as she mentions. I was putting so much stress on particular things in my life, like who I am with, and what people have done to me and why I think they are wrong. After reading that it made me think that none of that shit matters. Life isn’t about holding grudges or not talking to someone because of one stupid situation. From this point on I’m going to try my hardest to live by these words and of course remember that I need to Seize the day. That is the name of my blog and the phrase I am obsessed with. I will not continue anymore to contradict that statement. It’s time for me to grow a bit more and in admitting my wrongs and setting aside petty thoughts I believe I can do this.

Bring on the new year and everything that it has to offer. The good the bad and the ugly.
