This time next week it will be my little blog's first birthday! I can't believe it. I really can't. AND, I will have a fun surprise for you :)
On another note, I've been going through a bit of a rough patch recently. I've been facing some of the more painful parts of my past head-on to really work through them and leave them in the past for good. I think sometimes it's necessary for us to do that.
Whether we plan to do it or whether something happens that pushes us to, I think it's healthy and helpful to face some of the unfinished business of our past. It's not easy, but then again, most worthwhile things aren't.
After all, rock bottom really does allow us to create a new, solid foundation. It gives us the opportunity to rebuild our lives for the better.
Do you ever take some time to assess your life? To decide which things should stay and which should go? What has helped you in this process? :)
