I Won’t Give Up

You know that feeling when everything is awesome & your world seems perfect & then something happens that makes it suck?

Yeah, that.

That happened to me last week when I was dealt with a surprising blow from my ex as it relates to our daughters. It was below the belt & I was floored.

Fortunately, I was pleasantly reminded of how wonderful the people in my life are. I was met with love, support & comfort that blew me away. I can’t thank those people enough & I honestly don’t know what I’d do without them. They went above & beyond the call of duty to be there for me & I’m so happy that they’re in my life. I’m better because they’re here.

It’s easy to lose sight of those who are by our sides & care about us & take them for granted. We all tend to forget how amazing the people who care about us are when things are good & maybe not appreciate them as we should. It’s something I’ve tried to stop doing, as I’ve done it many times in the past. I try to show the people in my life that I genuinely appreciate them for everything they do, no matter how big or small. I’m not always good at it, but it’s something I want to work on.

Everyone wants to know that they are loved & appreciated by those they care about. In this life of social networking, texting in lieu of calling (I’m tres guilty of this), BBM & drive thru, we’ve lost the personal sentiment in life. Something as simple as a thanks or a small comment of appreciation can help us all feel a little brighter. It takes 30 seconds & it means so much.

I always hope the people in my life, from my daughters to the higher powers and every one in between know how grateful I am for the love, support & overall awesomeness they bring to my life. I’m a very lucky person, simply because they’re here.
