I've been...absent (for a long, long time).
2013 has been quite a year with a lot of heartache that I'd rather not talk about. It's so easy to say that I am looking forward to a fresh start and a new year and wipe the slate clean. Though, it will never be clean as there are many memories that will not be forgotten from this year, just things that I wish didn't turn out the way that they did.
Moving forward, I am going to try and focus on the good that I see in my every day life, and I am going to try my best to be thankful for the things around me, the things I do, and the things that I try to teach my girls. To put it mildly, I am trying to be a better person. Not that I'm bad or anything. It's just time to not let negativity take over and to try to see the beauty in things every day. I think that in seeing the good and focusing on that, that good things will come, and that's what the focus here will be. I'm ready for good things.
As I put it all out to the universe, I am hoping to figure myself out with whatever ends up coming my way. Wish me luck, because I really think I'm going to need it.
