Left to carry on. 

I learned yesterday that one of the servers that I worked with a long time ago passed away after a battle with cancer.

Feels like only yesterday that I heard that she was having health issues.

While I didn’t know her well,  I remember how she made me feel.  She could brighten your day with a warm smile or a kind word.    She always asked me to cook for her and she would always make a big deal about my ability because she knew how good that made me feel.

I went to here Facebook page and I read all the kind words, memories, and condolences from friends and family that had a similar experience with her.

You  could tell that she lived a wonderful life.  Wife, mother of 4, and grandmother.

It’s one of the moments when you are so happy that their suffering is over and the real sadness is for all those that are left to carry on without her.

“I’m not crying because I feel so sorry for you.  I’m crying for me”  Toby Keith.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
