My Pursuit of Happiness

Just feeling like I should make a quick update. I've had so far, just about 9 months now to reflect on myself. What I want to do, where I want to be, who I must become. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter. Life takes detours and doesn't go as planned. I just need to be happy, or at least learn to be. Even if it takes a lifetime to acheive that happiness. So far along that journey, I've pick up a few hitchhikers. They are my husband and my three beautiful kids. Each day given is a new opportunity to start fresh. And that's what I plan to do. I've spent too many nights wishing, pondering and hoping things would be different. That I could reach my goals. It's made me a bitter person. It's time to be thankful for what I have, instead of focusing on the potential of what could be. I am where I'm meant to be for a reason. Its made me who I am now. 
Last weekend I took a few pictures of myself, hoping that it would spark something new inside me. Let me tell you it did. Seeing these pictures it reminded me that I am beautiful. I am unique, that I can be happy. That I need to think and take care about myself more often. I am a woman with great potential. I see in these pictures, how much life has changed me and the way I look. I finally have matured. This year was about finding myself,...and I think I just did.
