{ I wish I could send everyone one of these}

This week thus far has been great {really great actually}.

I feel like I’ve gotten so much accomplished, and I’ve had wonderful support from my followers {There’s now 6 of you!!}

I am just so grateful for everyone who has taken the time to leave a comment, give me blog tips {Ashley, aka “Little Miss Momma”}, or become a new follower -because really, you have no idea how much that means to me.

I remember… not too long ago when I’d just sit in my apartment and not do anything.
Not because there wasn’t anything to do- but because I physically couldn’t do anything. {If any of you didn’t know, I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis & Endometriosis this past year}
I guess I just felt sorry for myself and lost confidence in myself. I felt defective.
I dropped out of my classes at my University, and I sat around in pain doing nothing, all day. Losing hope is really easy to do when you spend your days the way I did. And no matter how many people told me it would be okay- I didn’t believe them.

I finally had to take charge, snap out of my depression and say;

HEY! I don’t want to spend my days like this.

Since I had that “ah-ha” moment I’ve:

*Started attending classes at an online University {that way I can be comfy in my pajama’s all day & be able to do my school work at home, with my heating pad, without traveling}

* Started posting on this blog everyday, even when I can’t find the time to brush my hair {true statement}.

*Opened an Etsy store {link in sidebar}

* Gained lots of “Gusto” {always wanted to say that} in what I’m doing and what my goals in life are.

Basically, without going into my whole life story… I’d like to send out a HUGE thank-you & a GIANT hug out to all of you and let you know how much I appreciate you and the courage you’ve given me.

Your humbled blogger,
