Change and Growth 14

embracing change

There are going to be some changes around these parts, particularly with the Friday posts.  I’m not exactly sure what changes will be happening so stay tuned.  I just know that there is a shake up but things will stay largely the same.  I’ll still have the link up and some sort of variation of this Happy/gratitude list but just revamped.

The reason for the change:  Sometimes you just need to walk away from friendships that don’t serve you any longer.  It doesn’t mean I’m not disappointed or I hate the person, not at all.  I just simply value myself more than to stay in a one-sided friendship, where ego and selfishness are more important than being a friend to someone.  I’m not saying that we all as a humanity don’t have shit to work on, but sometimes, unfortunately, friendships run their course and you just have to walk away for your own well-being.

So the Friday posts are still going to happen, there’s just going to be a bit of shake up.  I’ve always loved to posts that honour the gratitude I have or highlighting the positive.  Thousands if not millions of others blog about gratitude or happy posts all the time, so you know what? I enjoy them, so therefore they are gonna stick.

If anyone wants to unfriend me or quit being friends, then so be it.  I cannot control anyone but myself; we are each our own bosses and how you conduct yourselves is none of my business.  I do want to say thanks to many that have been supportive, but also, understanding.  In the last two weeks, since the death of my mother-in-law, I’ve stopped ignoring things that have been bothering me and I decided to take action instead of sweeping shit under the rug, because that is no longer cutting it.

Life is short and I want nothing more than to surround myself with positive people that have my back, point blank.  And I don’t think that’s a difficult concept to understand.  You can ask anyone that truly knows me and they’ll tell you that I’m a no-bullshit, tell ’em like it is kind of woman.  I’m pragmatic and the truth sometimes hurts.

embracing change

So here’s to change, staying positive and keeping your head held eye.  We all have our own shit, issues and trauma and you know what else?  We’re all crazy busy, EVERYONE is busy for crying out loud.  Everyone’s lives are busy and full.  But I choose to live a life of authenticity and being intentional.  And if you don’t like that, well frankly, you don’t have to read it then, do you?

Have a lovely weekend my friends.  xox
