This past month has been filled with such lows & such highs.
It started at the end of July when my aunt Carol passed away from a long battle with colon cancer. It was a loss that we had expected in so many ways, but hit us so hard. Her son Christopher, my cousin, passed away a year and a half prior, and the tragedy for one family is beyond difficult.
The same week of my aunt's passing, I chose to pursue another venture, to take a dream I had a little further. I continued to push the envelop with my cancer support blog I started earlier this year. I opened it nationwide, and it's creeping into being global as well. My dream that people would find some sort of support during their cancer journeys from reading stories from others experiencing it all has come true. The support I have gotten from people from all over has helped me move forward & I wish the same for those who find the blog in a time of need.
The month ended as I got to watch one of my best friends marry the love of her life. There's nothing like watching 2 people you care about so much take steps forward.
And that's what I think I've learned most this past month. I need to continue to move forward. I need to stop being afraid of finding myself, testing myself & opening myself up to the world. I need to move forward with my business because I have been beyond proud of myself & I need to continue to make the scary changes I've been thinking about regarding it. I need to stop being so afraid to make a mistake, to misstep.
This month I also turned 25 & although my vision of where I thought I'd be at this point in my life is nowhere near that, I also couldn't of dreamed of the things I have accomplished. I work full time, I started my own business at 22 years old, I manage a global support group, I am the co-chair of one of the largest Relay for Life's in our area and beyond that, I have a ridiculously amazing family; the one I was born into and the one I made for myself.
So, here's to a month of heartbreak, discovery & a new found desire to move forward. I hope you all stay tuned with what will be new with Love Struck, I hope it'll make you excited like it's making me!
Oh and, I am one freakin' lucky girl.
