Finally watched the latest Walking Dead and I’m just done now.
I haven’t written something here for a really long time. I’ve been busy in a good way and I’m extremely thankful for that. my Instagram gets more love than this place lol anyways I think this holiday definitely gives me some time to reflect on everything that’s happened since last thanksgiving. I went through some emotional roller coasters early on but realized I was worth more than that. Yet, I realized that if I wasn’t loving myself then nothing will ever be enough. That realization has driven me to become a healthier person and become the best I can be. I come back home every so often and see how proud my family is of me and that’s a lot of pressure for me because I’ve wondered what if I don’t live up to expectations? This year I’ve accepted that as long as I know I’m still honest with myself and am on the right track, the smaller things don’t matter as much. I guess what I’m trying to get at is that what I’m thankful for this year specifically is my journey of being a healthier me and that I am lucky enough to still have a strong support system in my family and friends.
As my health gets better, however I notice how much older the people who I looked up to are getting. I see that I’ll need to take care of my mom sooner than later and that these are the easy years for me. The difficult ones are still to come but I’m up for it. I thankfully came from a family of relentless people on both sides so it’s in me to make it work. I will make it work but today I will enjoy the time with my family and eat my mom’s delicious tamales :)
And the slow burn towards that face turn continues…
Nicely done, Reigns.
