It's easy to get caught up on the day to day activities of work and life and feel like we've been spinning our wheels. But just stopping to look back at your life at a specific time, for instance a year ago. You will be amazed at how far you've come. Personally, a year ago I was gathering the courage to end a challenging marriage. So much fear went through this decision. Can I do this on my own? Will everyone in the family blame me? Looking back the courage to forge through a difficult time with the belief that although the unknown was scary, I knew deep down we'd all be in a better place. The challenges were tough, the process was difficult, but we made it. I stand here today and reflect back on the last year of my life and really say, " you did it kid." You created the life you knew would be better. It's important for all of us to periodically check in and reflect on the events and experiences of our lives. It really empowers us to see we really can get through something difficult and there IS life afterwards. It's important to always pay it forward and when we see another caught up in the day to day events of their life that we encourage and say you can do it too! That's the great thing in life; it's constantly changing, we Do have choices, and it DOES get better..... And yes.... YOU ARE KILLING IT!!
