Surprise! Well that sucked.

I’ve always disliked the saying “sometimes life sucks and then you die.” 

For me, life is a gift and the sucky parts make you stronger.


What can I say. Sometimes life surprises you. Sometimes the surprise is wonderful. Sometimes the surprise is a proud moment of accomplishment. Sometimes the surprise is gut wrenching. Sometimes, it starts off one way and ends another. The question is…how do you handle surprises?

Call me an over sharer. Yes, I put myself out there…let it all hang out for better or worse. Why do I do this? Because I have the fundamental belief that God, tests us, gives us joy, puts love in our life, teaches us lessons for a reason and it is our DUTY to share our testimony, on his behalf, with others.

Sometimes…it hurts. Sometimes it exposes us. Sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s woomazing!

I’m not going to lie. I had probably the biggest surprise of my life two weeks ago. The kind of thing that shakes you to the core. It makes you doubt yourself. But for me, I KNOW that whatever happens to me; 1. happens for a reason, 2. makes me better, 3. is meant to be shared to help others.

Yes, my husband left me. Yes, I thought we had a beautiful life. Yes, it hurts. Yes, I’ve had many other hurts before. Yes, I could be embarrassed. But I will walk with my head held up. Knowing that my heart was in the right place. Knowing that I’m not perfect and others aren’t either. Most importantly knowing, that I will continue to be ME even if that ME isn’t good enough for some. Because the life God has given me, surprises and all…has made ME who I am today and am grateful for it. (Plus, I think I’m pretty badass. Ha!)

I will continue to share my joys and sorrows with others hoping that I can make a difference in this world, because I KNOW that is what God expects from me.

    I admire you so much. You have so much courage and backbone, and such a beautiful heart. Yes, you should walk with your head held high. You should be proud of your accomplishments – and especially about the fact that, no matter what happens, you keep an open heart. You are a true lady.
    Always your friend,
