Today marks the 3 year “anniversary” that my mother “transitioned”. Three years ago I was a complete WRECK. I had a lot of unanswered questions. I had a lot of hatred in my heart. I was CONFUSED… I’d never get answers to why my childhood was… was it WAS… A year later… I began to understand it a LITTLE… I understood death a bit more… Two years later… I had MORE answers…. It wasn’t so much about the questions that were NOT answered… it was more about forgiveness… it was about understanding people do the best they can… with what they have… WHEN they have it… No longer was it about the “blame game”… it was about accepting things as they were… as they are…

THREE YEARS later…. the story has changed… LIVE LIFE for YOU!!!! Not for what people expect you to do… not based on what you THOUGHT you should do… LIFE is about living as YOU WISH…as YOU DESIRE!!! It’s about getting to the end… and NOT regretting it all…. NOT wishing you did this or that…. It’s truly about doing all that your heart and soul DESIRES…. Tomorrow is NOT PROMISED!!! Do all that you ever dreamed!!!! Live life with NO REGRETS!!! Regardless of what that may look like to others… At the end of the day… they will not be in the casket with YOU… nor… will they be with you in that incinerator… LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOOOUUUUUU!!!!! That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned in these past 365 days to the day…

Today I did a thing

A thing I’ve played in my head for months

Today I did a thing

Just the thought of it

Kicked me more than once

Today I did a thing

To remove all the chains

Today I did a thing

Many people will find strange

Today I did a thing

Followed my heart without a doubt

Today I did a thing

It was something I thought I couldn’t live without

Today I did a thing

To close out a chapter

Today I did a thing

I welcome my happily ever after đź’–
