Okay y’all … it’s finally my birthday and I’m sure y’all are happy that it’s finally over. 😉 This birthday has been a rather difficult one for me. For some reason, this is the first year that I’m having a difficult time with officially being on the “losing side of 25.” I’ve heard of people having the “birthday blues” but I’ve never experienced them myself until this year. This is my third birthday without my dad and while, yes, it does get easier, the sting and pain of him not being present with me is definitely still there. It’s easy to want to retreat and feel sorry for myself but I realize that I have an amazing support system around me who wants to lift me up and celebrate me.
This is the first year since my dad passed in 2013 that I’ve felt like I’m actually progressing, not just maintaining. Losing a loved one rocks you to the core and at the time, I did whatever I could to just stay afloat. But this year has been different. I started this blog, I have a lot of great business opportunities coming up and I’m working on being the best Caroline I can be. And that is a beautiful thing.
For the first time in my life, whenever I speak things into existence, they happen! I truly have good intentions, want to help people in whatever little way I can and I’m working hard to prove that.
