1127 has always meant a lot to me, it’s part of my address but I never thought of it as my lucky number until last year. On the 27th of November I would have to say my life changed for the better. I realized the power of positivity and how wonderful life can be with a positive attitude. Needless to say I ate fast food that afternoon, and haven’t been able to touch it since, after a horrible case of food poisoning! I must say this year with everything that has happened would have been far worse had I not experienced the wonder of that November day. With the loss of my beloved aunt, my two next door neighbors who were father and grandfather figures, and severed relationships, I don’t know where I would be without my gracious outlook.
How fitting that Thanksgiving lands on the 27th this year. You may wonder how I remember dates? I should have mentioned in my “quirky” posts that my memory is startling. I can remember just about anything except things I don’t listen to! 😉 At times I love it, while other times it drives me nuts as it doesn’t give me a chance to forget anything. This holiday season I have made it a point to do my best to not “think” about the past, forgive, and go on with my life without them. I’ve realized forgiving doesn’t mean forgetting, and it sure doesn’t mean having coffee and hanging out with the person. It means moving on with your life and not having to get past something.
With this being said, I must thank all of you for all you do. I could never have fathomed that the February day when I decided to create an etsy shop, and make a blog to promote them would bring me so much. I have always wanted a career in journalism, and the scarves brought me a little closer to it. You inspire me, and keep me strong when I could run the other direction. You don’t know the joy it brings me to know you visit, and especially when you leave comments letting me know you’re here and you’ve enjoyed what I share.
To those who’ve followed me since my blogger days, I am at a loss for words to know you changed your links and still read what I have to say 🙂 Some were in shock when I left and truth be told, I didn’t know how this would turn out….but I knew it was time for a change. My posts reflected the negative and that wasn’t me, that’s not who I am. Dreams, aspirations, love and strength blossom in positive light.
Much love and gratitude. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving regardless of what you do, and who you are with. It’s a time to be thankful, and I truly am!
