sometimes you need to be reminded of the truth

is there anything more truthful? i personally don't think so. i'm so incredibly thankful for all of the choices i've ever made. i'm so thankful they led me to my husband, my job, my friends, my home, my fur babies. They've taught me valuable lessons about people, i'm thankful for the choices that led me to lose the bad friends and the choices that led me to replace them people who really deserve my time. at the time of some of those choices i've had to take a deep breath and say "this too shall pass" and you know what? it always has!

moral of this post? this painting really hit home for me. through the tears, the heartache, the times where i thought i was as low as could be, the waking up on the wrong side of the bed, the minimum wage slave jobs, the being alone and on my own at 15, the full time job in high school, the empty bank accounts and living in dumps, the broken down cars, the every day problems we all suffer from, "this too shall pass". it's all passed, it's all paid off. the beautiful home, the amazing fur babies, my fantastic husband and wonderful family, my lovely, talented, supportive & caring friends.

I would make every single one of those wrong choices again if it took me to where i am today. in the end, all of our wrong choices can turn out to be the right choices, we're all dealt difficult cards in life, it  depends entirely on how we choose to deal with those difficult cards that determines where we end up and where our "right place" is.

(stay tuned this weekend for a super pretty, super simple, super cheap DIY chic home decor!)


  1. Aw I love your posts! This too struck home! We're not all the way were we want to be, and it's certainly be a struggle...and damn this past year has hurt, as you know, with some of the losses I've had, but to be were we are with who I am with, I wouldn't trade it for the world.

    1. aw, i'm glad you liked it! you're so supportive!
