It’s really no secret that 2012 has not been the greatest year for me in terms of chain of events. The past couple of weeks I’ve been hit with some phenomenal bad luck that could almost be put into a sitcom.

Seriously, though, I’ve NEVER been that girl that people feel sorry for, but over the past couple of weeks the amount of “awws” and “OMG I’m sorry” and deep “condolences” I’ve received has been overwhelming. I’ve honestly never felt sorry for myself, but on Friday night when the last straw broke (aka NEW nice bike stolen) for the first time in my life I truly felt sorry for myself…

and then instantly felt like an as*s for feeling sorry for myself — I had the most amazing man in the world sitting right there with me, calming me down as I sobbed tears of frustration. The same wonderful man was simultaneously, proactively figuring out the next steps for getting my bike theft claim submitted to insurance. I couldn’t be more blessed. I also had friends texting me and sending me tweets to make sure I was ok. Again, I could not be more blessed.

I’ve found that although I’m not in a terrible mood, I can’t help, but walk around with a solem face — it just goes with the runny nose and limping on a boot. However, at the end of the day, despite it all I can not be upset at anything or anyone because no matter what silly messups happen in life I am BLESSED because I have amazing, supportive people in my life…



And many more!!!! No matter what happens, my life is filled with love and because of that, my heart will always be full and happy 🙂
