Life is hard yo.

Seriously, it’s hard to love, live and just breathe sometimes.
Loving… yourself, your mate, friends, family along with everything else can become a chore, but it shouldn’t, and I know that.  Living…when I crawl out of bed every morning all I can think about it crawling back in it.  Breathing…in and out… new air each time, is somewhat of a miracle.

Something needs to change.  I need to find more JOY in my life.

Luckily I stumbled upon this little gem of a book after reading Mama Peas post the other day and let me tell you… well I’m not through the book yet so I can’t tell you much, but I can tell you that it starts out so simple yet inspiring … this portion of this post will be continued once the book is read.  Full synopsis people, I promise.

One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Life Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voscamp

So, I’m going to keep on reading, loving, living and breathing, because I do love life.  It’s a good life.  I might even take up swimming again…I do love swimming.  I was supposed to start swimming again in September… it’s nearly November. Oy.
