Good Things

Alright, so I apologize for not posting last week, I got swept away with time and before I realized it the week was over.

But goodness gracious, as the saying goes – time flies when you are having a good time.

Good things have been happening. I feel an abundance of positive energy for which I am grateful for and I have a few things on the go. Plans, plans and more plans.

Speaking of plans….

I’m not sure if you remember, but a while back I attempted to make the switch to WordPress.org for my blog… yah epic fail. I panicked and reverted back to WordPress.com the same day. The whole concept freaks me out. I am so far from being technologically literate – it’s not even funny.

However, I know that for what I want to do and where I envision my blog going I will need to make the switch. Apparently, correct me if I’m wrong – none of the beautiful comments made on my blog posts will transfer over when I move my content to the new host. This is a tragedy. I sincerely appreciate every single comment I’ve received on my posts. If there is any way to prevent me from losing them, please let me know. Additionally, if you know of any resources for self-hosted blogging, send em’ my way.

I’m not sure when I’ll make the switch but I anticipate it will be taking place no later than May. When I am about to make the move I will announce it, as far as I know there should be no impact on those subscribed to my blog so long as I do everything right (cross your fingers). The domain will remain the same- I’ll just be doing an overhaul and face lift to my blog. It is a work in progress, but I promise you there is a vision.

Perhaps that wasn’t the most exciting good news to share with you but I’m pretty excited about it. I promise there is actually more exciting good news (life update) that will follow in 2 weeks. I won’t be posting next week (for good reason).

All in all, I feel very optimistic with the direction I am taking my life. I have some serious goals that I am excited to bring to life. I’ve never been one to create vision boards BUT you all know I write my goals down, because a goal that isn’t written down is just a dream. I love dreaming but I want more than to just dream – I want a reality.

I will be exerting some serious effort to achieve my goal regarding my blog, but I have no doubt I can achieve my vision and I’m excited for you all to share the journey with me. I truly appreciate all your support.

Things are about to get good – really good, and it’s not by chance. So, what does that tell me? It tells me that good things can start to go your way too. Put yourself on the pathway of positive thinking, self-love, self-care and self-forgiveness and you are going to be in the direct line for good things to happen. I guarantee it!

Good things aren’t reserved for a select few – they are for me and you.

Just A Little Bit of Happy

This picture says it all.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Remember it’s the small and simple things that ultimately bring us the most happiness. Take today – take everyday for that matter and find the little things to be grateful for and I promise you’ll be happier than you ever thought possible.

Look for the good and you’ll find it along with a little bit more happiness than you had before.

Here You Are

Here I am. Living.

There was a time when I did not want to live. When thoughts of suicide were my constant companion, however I am grateful to say those days are in the past.

Despite it all, here I am living. Despite having bipolar, here I am living. And not only am I living – but I am loving my life and thriving.

So much has happened over the course of my life, as I am sure you can say the same. So much has happened and yet, here we are.

I am feeling more like alive than I ever have. I am feeling more like the person I’ve always wanted to be but that I thought was beyond my grasp.

Life is precious. Life is wonderful, when I was at my worst I wasn’t alive, I wasn’t living – I was existing, and now with a lot of hard work, optimism and hope – here I am.

I hope everyone realizes how strong they are.

Despite all the hardships and trials you go through, you keep going. That is true strength.

Sorry my last two posts have been short, I have so much to say but I haven’t quite been able to express myself adequately (lots of writing and deleting). I do however have some amazing news and I am hoping to share it shortly.

Life can be so beautifully unexpected, remember that.
