Roughest week ever.

I guess there's no need to beat around the bush... My grandma passed away last weekend, so I'll just leave it to you to imagine how rough this past week has been. Also, my aunt passed away six years ago; that date was just four days after my grandma passed. And my mom has had a couple friends lose a parent this week as well. It's just not been a good time. I also had to bust my butt to get all my course work finished so I could come home early. Everything has just been very...hard, rushed, blurry, and whatever else. Whatever you know about mourning, I've been through it this past week. But I'll have you know I'm a pretty resilient person. Things don't really get me down for too long. I have an uncanny ability to see the good even in the worst situations, and it really does help me to get through the worst of times. For example, my grandma was in pain, and she was having a really hard time these last few months. It is so comforting to know that she is no longer suffering and in a much better place now. Being able to focus on that glimmer of light is keeping me from being an emotional wreck and a half.

And if I've learned anything this past week it's that life is too damn short to be miserable and alone. Family is so important. It's all we have at the end of the day. And we need to do everything we can to protect that ever so sacred family bond. And with cherishing our families, we need to remember to do the things that make us happy. Now, more than ever, I am determined to live the kind of life I want to live, and I'm not going to waste my time dreaming but never doing. And I just want to remind all of y'all to really take the time to evaluate your life. If something is keeping you from being happy, change it. And remember to keep your family close. They're all you got.
