Thank You!

First of all, I want to thank all of my readers. I put that post out there not trying to get sympathy or pity, but rather it was just another way to get my feelings out. The support that you gave me…well, I can’t describe how it made me feel and I really appreciate it. Thank you.

I’m doing much better…I went down to visit my family this weekend and I broke down Friday night, but my sister (ironically this sister) really supported me and the rest of the weekend was great.

For those of you that said that I always come off as being so happy…thanks. Honestly that’s a big goal in my life – to be positive and happy the majority of the time. When I was talking to hubby and relating everything that was bothering me in my life, he made a comment to me…“you need to be around more happy people”. He had no idea how right he was. I told him that it all made sense to me…I’m the happy person in a lot of the friendships that I’m in, which is OK. But sometimes I need to get away from all of the people that are draining from me and let someone else fill me up. Does this make sense? At my meeting the other night I was able to catch up with a friend that I hadn’t talked to in over a year. And she was one of those people that no matter what was going on in her life, she was always complimenting me and lifting me up. That is just her personality. She was a complete inspiration to me a couple of years ago, and that’s why I strive to be so positive…because I know how good she always made me feel. But as everyone knows, nobody’s life is perfect, and I think it’s very important that we let that side of ourselves show as well so that others see that we are all human, and we all have bad times along with the good times.

I really appreciate all of your support and uplifting words…I really needed that! And now I will go back to being happy and encouraging and “filling all of you up” with all of that love and encouragement that my wonderful friend AMK taught me just a couple short years ago!

This is what blogging is truly about!! Being able to lay it all out and expose your feelings. I was hesitant to post about my feelings as a mother because I am NOT looking for sympathy or whatever. I am getting out what I feel is dragging me down. The bonus to that is awesome readers like you to leave comments that make me see/feel what I already, deep down, know.

I'm glad you had a nice weekend. You deserve to be happy and to be around people that don't require "work"...

Just read previous post now-glad your feeling better- good cries are always needed..

But,I think we all need to vent once in awhile and that is the one great thing about blogs. It is our little corner of space to say or show whatever we want.I think all us moms(or just women in general) need to hear support from each other once in awhile on our bad days,There's nothing wrong with it-It only helps to cope with the world better (in my case anyways)..

Glad the rest of your weekend was great though-
Keep smilling!

Now you know firsthand what keeping things bottled up inside can do. You have to let yourself talk more and tell people when something is bothering you or when you have a problem.

And, sometimes, crying is all you need.

Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Glad to hear your feeling better and broke out with some happy friends. It's good to be the person everyone goes to but sometimes you have to be the one that needs help too.

it totally makes sense! It will definitely help if you align yourself with "Happy People"...after all they say a smile is contagious! It is so true isn't it??
