Shell Shoes and Denim + Update
Hello Everyone! Happy wednesday! I apologize for not being on top of my posts the past couple of weeks, life has a funny way of throwing you curve balls and I have definitely been thrown one or two the past couple of weeks. I’ve realized just how precious life is and to never take time or people for granted. My mom who also happens to be my best friend and the one who knows me better than anyone else got some devastating news last week, she has breast cancer… This is not something that runs in her family at all so when they first told her that her yearly mammogram was irregular and that she needed to come back in she didn’t think anything of it. then she went in for a second opinion and sure enough the results were the same, they had her do a biopsy and we all got the news back last wednesday that she was positive for breast cancer. We are all trying to remain calm, and positive and strong for her as she faces this trial like the feisty momma that she is, but it has also helped me to slow down and really look at the things that matter most in this life. My mom is amazing and I am so grateful to have her in my life as a mentor, friend and example she is the strongest person I know and if anyone can knock cancer on its butt it would be her.
over the past week I have really sat back and thought of everything that I thought was stressful, hard and important to me and as I did this i realized just how messed up my priorities have been. before I was so caught up in what people thought about me or said about me or just me, me , me in general and I would let silly comments on my blog, pictures or lives get to me and would let them bother me for days and actually ruin my mood. I was so caught up in growing my brand to be this giant success to show all those nay sayers that I was worth it and that I could be successful and “famous”. Now instead of being so caught up in chasing fame, let me rephrase that a little. I wasn’t necessarily chasing fame per say but I wanted to really grow my brand huge and be successful which isn’t a bad thing but the way that I have been trying to do it has been all wrong. So now with my new outlook I realize just how blessed and lucky I am to have followers like you all. you guys are seriously the best and I am so grateful to have your support. I am grateful to have the support of my amazing family and instead of spending so much time preparing for and going live I am going to spend more time holding my babies and family. instead of stressing about how much house work I have to finish or whether or not I got my workout in that day or not I want to be there for those that need me most and be grateful to have a roof over my head and a body that functions completely. How blessed I am to get a chance to work from home so that I can see my kids all day and witness their adorable phrases and silly faces. I thank heavenly father everyday for this life I have and the people that have come into my life through blogging and Facebook. thank you all again for being so wonderful!
