my people

There was a time that I thought hopeless thoughts and my lungs couldn’t find air.

There was a time that my world fell apart.

It felt as though my world fell apart.

There was a time wherein what I believed to be true in this world was not.

What I believed my life to be it was not.

I was sad.

I am sad.

I was mad.

I am mad.
Time and time again I have been picked up.

Someone has provided me with hope, with love.

Many someones. Time and time again.

I have people.

I have good people.

Great and wonderful people.

People who found the air for me and helped me breathe.

I am thankful for those people

*there are plenty of people not pictured. You know who you are, and I thank you.

Ive learned that time keeps moving

Ive learned that you must keep moving to

Ive learned that I am stronger than I ever gave myself credit for

Ive learned that having a child makes you stronger

Ive learned what true heartbreak feels like

Ive learned that the heart is a wondrous thing, it can be broken and full at the same time

Ive learned that sometimes all you can do is cry

Ive learned to find comfort in the morning’s arrival

Ive learned to depend on the hope that a new day brings

Ive learned that a smile from your baby cures a multitude of ills

Ive learned that I now live for her

Ive learned that the future is uncertain

Ive learned that happiness is a choice, and a hard one at times

Ive learned that my friends are also my family

Ive learned that my family will pick me up when I have fallen

Ive learned that love isn’t always enough

Ive learned that I was wrong

Im learning that I am the only one that controls my happiness

Im learning that I need to work on improving myself

Im learning to be a better mother, friend, sister and daughter

Im learning to ask for help

Im learning to sit in silence

Im learning that time passes to quickly

Im learning to juggle it all

Im learning that I have no control over his actions

Im learning that you shouldn’t expect certain behaviors

Im learning to seek contentment in each moment

Im learning to trust my instincts

Im learning to embrace change

Im learning to let it be
