Hi guys, it's me, that girl katie,
It seems a lot of people are posting on Facebook, what a wonderful year, thanks for being apart of it. I haven’t clicked on any of those links but I imagine it’s a photo gallery of pictures they have posted throughout the year. While I am happy and also jealous to think most everyone has had a great year it brings up emotions for me.
Saying goodbye to 2014 means saying hello to 2015 knowing my sister won’t be a part of it. Losing my sister to cancer has been the worst and hardest thing I have ever been faced with and most people around me have no clue how I feel inside. This morning while at a kick boxing class I punched and kicked the bag as if I was hitting cancer and yes I felt better afterwards. Both exercise and my kids have really helped me stay grounded during this journey and I am so grateful for that. I am also very appreciative of all those who have listened to me as I try to process the loss of my sister. I am forever changed and believe that that with time and work I will make it through this part of my life and become a much stronger and more confident individual.
I will never stop missing, loving and caring for my sister but I know I need to figure out my “new normal”.
I hope, wish and dream that 2015 is filled with a lot of good health and heaps and heaps of laughter. I would like to think that the change of a New Year will guarantee my wishes but I also know life isn’t always equal, fair or easy. I realize I need to CHOOSE HAPPINESS and that I have the power and control of that simple yet hard at times goal.
May all your dreams, goals and wishes come true for this year and all the years to come....And thanks for being apart of my year!
Cheers to 2015!
