Hi there!

Remember us? It's been so long. So tell me what have you been up to?
Lots has been happening with the littles and me.

Where do I start? Well, maybe a tiny little rewind is in order.

My ex husband and I split up four years ago. This was not my decision, but it's how it ended up. For a very long time I was hurt and broken. The split took my zest for life out of me. It caused my light to burn dimmer. This was a huge mistake that I allowed to happen. I wallowed in a sadness that my spirit and the spirits of my children were not made to wallow in. I stopped pretty much everything that was happening in my life. Anything that gave me joy.

After awhile I was able to pick up pieces and rebuild a life. A life that's much better suited for me.

I started a business doing something I'm wildly passionate about. Massage Therapy. I have been practicing massage on a very low key level for over a decade. Owning and operating a practice was always my dream.
I feel very strongly, that when one dreams door is closed, the next dreams door swings open. Call it faith in God, in the universe, in whatever you want to call it. I just know that when the call came I rose to the occasion and answered it.

While running my practice, my littles were growing up quickly and both enrolled in school. I decided to also further my education and sent my self back to school. It was a hard 6 month journey, but I came out on top of my new learned craft and as shiny as ever.
Life goes on, happily and with out delay. So much growing has happened in our lives. Struggles over come. Giggles were made as well as beautiful memories i failed to document here. But, we are still here. Living, growing, thriving. New players have come up to our path. Some walked awhile others walked away. What remains is the constant force and love of the three of us. My littles and me.

No more hard times

Have you heard this song? I first stumbled across this beautiful version of this song years ago when I saw the movie Georgia. It's the story of two sisters who lead completely different lives. I loved the movie so much. It made me cry and while it was on cable all those years ago every time it was on I would stop what I was doing and watch it. Maybe because I have a sister and we are totally different it resonated. The thing that haunts me most about this movie is this song. I loved it then. i never really thought about it after I got off my cable movie kick, but I did think it was beautiful. One day about a year ago I was laying in bed, thinking - dwelling actually as I do have away of doing, and suddenly this song the chorus escaped from my lips. I could not stop singing it loudly and out of tune of course. I immediately jumped out of bed and said girl get this caca straight already! I went searching for it online listened to it and sang along for a good 15 minutes. I felt every little twang of Mare's voice. I allowed myself to feel how I felt in that moment... Some residual sorrow washed over me and then that was that. Mending mending mending. I began to begin again. But that time I really dug my heels into rewriting the beautiful story of me. The chorus of this song has become a little mantra. I have added it to my prayers it's what I say when I have a random Gemini moment and get down in the dumps. I find so much of the music I have always loved calls to me almost like there's a secret message or code the universe is trying to tell me. I like discovering how a song will leave me. The thoughts it puts in my brain. It equals the playing field. I'm not the only one come across hard times. I realized that day a year ago like I seriously realized that happiness is a choice and you must embrace it. When the caca comes banish it away. This song reminds me of the day I got my happy back.
