My wordiness today is going to be about what an amazing summer this has been for me. Admittedly, it started off a little rocky. But around mid-July...we took AMAZING to a whole new level. What's made it so good you ask? Let me tell you.
Really, that's all. I finally, for real, settled in to be ME. All of me. And trust me, there are some rough spots. I'm not all sunshine and rainbows.
I made some decisions about friends (or people who aren't truly,) and where I want to put my energy. I added another class into my Zumba schedule. I made a commitment to healthy eating. I made the decision to volunteer some time.
With the help of The Punk, I (ok, he did A LOT of the work...) put our marriage into the best spot it's ever been in and am in the EXACT place I need to be there. I'm unbelievably happy, and the people in my life who love me can physically SEE it in me.
I've been to three amazing concerts this summer. I took a trip to the west coast with my love (and JUST him.) I enjoyed my kids and am pleased with how the summer went...which is good because we can't get it back. As I have more and more moments of realization that my girls are almost college aged (WHAT????,) I am overwhelmed with how fleeting childhood is. Can't I hold them just a little longer?? Oh, wait, this post is about to morph...we'll save that for another day.
We've had an outstanding, fandamntastic summer. I hope your's was equally awesome.
