Today, started a bit rough. I didn’t want to get out of bed.
Because this date, the 22nd, will never be the same for me. And the closer it gets to Christmas I have to make myself realize that my daughter won’t be with us this year. We lost her this past April.
Life is unpredictable that way, hitting you with curveballs that knock the wind out of you for more than a few seasons. No matter how many times you step up to the plate fear of striking out starts to weigh heavy on you.
We cannot let that stop us from playing to win.
Being the person I am, I have to always see the good in each day I’m blessed to live. Still, I have to cheer myself on because I’d be lying if I said it was easy. Some days, giving up feels like the right thing to do. I’m human with human emotions, right?
My daughter wouldn’t want that.
Knowing that, helps me get out of bed and do something that will change my life with intention. It keeps me mindful of the choices I make to reach my next level as my best self.
To anyone who’s lost someone special, I encourage you to get up. You channel the energy of your loved one and do it anyway.
What would they say, watching you stay stuck?
Yeah, I know it’s easier said than done but it’s a slap in the face to them if I’m being honest.
My daughter was full of life. She enjoyed living every second she was here. Even though she’s not here physically, I know for certain she would shake her head at me for giving up.
So, I say this to you all at this very moment. Choose to live—to do your best every day—to control the things you can and let go of those you cannot.
Life’s too short for anything else.
Thanks for Kickin’ It With KeKe!
Until next time, live on purpose💜
