It’s been too long since I’ve sat at my computer and stared at the screen with an excitement with what I will type. There was a great deal of time that my thoughts, hopes, and dreams were tarnished by a broken heart I was desperately trying to fix. But there is a time to accept the past and move through the storm.
I found myself faced with a concept lately that is a bit scary for me and I will try my best to explain the twisty-turvy corners of my mind, but I feel as though there is a quote I should share that is an accurate summary of the thought.

Life has a funny way of knocking you down with no explanation. Life also has a way of giving you the best gift you ever could imagine.

Let me start off with a few quotes from a movie that is dear to my heart “Tangled” and just perhaps you will relate to them like I do:
Rapunzel: [after leaving her tower; happily] I can’t believe I did this!
Rapunzel: [worried] I can’t believe I did this.
Rapunzel: [excitedly squealing] I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THIS!
Rapunzel: [nervous laughter] … Mother would be so furious.
Rapunzel: [later, sitting on a rock holding some water lilies] Well, that’s okay! I mean, what she doesn’t know won’t kill her, right?
Rapunzel: [rocking back and forth in a cave] Oh, my gosh… This would kill her!
Rapunzel: [frolicking around] THIS IS SOOO FUUUUUN!
Rapunzel: [standing on a tree branch, head up against the bark] … I am a horrible daughter. I’m going back.
Rapunzel: [cartwheeling] I am NEVER going back! Woo-hoo!
Rapunzel: [face down in the grass] I am a despicable human being!
Rapunzel: [swinging around a tree] WOO-HOOO! BEST DAY EVER!
My life has been a series of ups and downs for a few years now, and I mostly try to focus on the positive but there are many days that I struggle with severe depression and anxiety. It’s these times that are the hardest for me to stay in touch with reality and keep focus on the goals and the responsibilities that I have.
