Last year around this time I was in a really good, positive place.



Several pounds heavier, far more self-confident, far more at peace.



I had fewer worries. I felt like I had a plan and that my ducks swam in a row.

Within a few months I was on my way to a happier, healthier me.



I feel like everything fell awry when my grandmother had her stroke this spring. Suddenly everything felt more urgent, scarier. Life was mixed with the desperate joy of not completely losing her and the horrific stress of realizing the full effect of the stroke on our family.

And it pulled me to pieces.

I start this new year not in a happy place and no specific goal in mind. I'm just glad to have gotten here. So what if I am not well, if I am not happy. I am here. I am strong. I know who is the most important and what my priorities are. I am here, if in pieces.

I may be scattered, but all of me is here.

Somewhere.

About


Jen
Hi!. I'm Jen, fiance to Greg, college student, and future crazy cat lady. I love makeovers, decorating, collecting random facts, trivia, playing show and tell, camp movies, shopping, libraries, random singing, random dancing, snuggling, and loafing. Oh, and watching Glee.



Greg
Greg has been my partner in crime for nine years. I've known him since high school; he is my soulmate and best friend. He's an actor, a playwright, a poet and works in data entry. We spend most of our time laughing hysterically. We're thinking about getting married sometime this decade and adopting our first cat sometime in the next few weeks.
