Everything I Need ...and Nothing That I Don't

I've been bad, bad, bad at blogging. Mostly b/c I've been busy living this new life I have! I did this post last year heading into the days before surgery and a few years back - and it's still cathartic. So here goes, for 2015. You can read last year's here.

And because, I love to add in lyrics - my new fave, Homegrown, by Zac Brown Band:
It's the weight that you carry from the things you think you want
I got everything I need, nothing that I don't



Ten Things I Wish I Could Say to Ten Different People:


  1. (This one has not, and probably will never change) You are the best friend I could ever ask for, and more. Neither time nor distance will ever be too much for us and I’m grateful every single day to call you my best friend. Thank you for supporting me, every single day. I can't do this life without you.
  2. I will always be convinced that our paths crossed for a reason, and I can't thank you enough for gently pushing me towards the start of my new journey. Thank you will never seem like enough. (Leaving this one alone - I still feel this way, and love that I get to run at least one race with you, FINALLY!!!!) 
  3. I'm glad our paths crossed. You lied, you connived, but you made me realize it was you, not me. 
  4. I was pretty sure someone like you would never come along. You did. I was so unprepared for it that I had no choice but to enjoy the ride. 
  5. Thank you for being one of my biggest supporters, for always encouraging me, being a therapist, and pushing me beyond the limits I think I have. Yep... still holds true. Thanks for pushing me and letting me push myself. Gains ... gains, gains!!! 
  6. You are an amazing wife, Mom, friend and person. I'm grateful to call you friend! I aspire to live my life in a way that you'd look up to. 
  7. Passive aggressive ain't the way to live life. 
  8. THANK YOU for being on this journey with me. I can't imagine having to go through this "alone". I know I'm not alone, but I also know you "get it" every single time I need to vent, ask questions or just talk! 
  9. I'm glad our friendship has blossomed. You're pretty awesome and you're an amazing mama! 
  10. Thank you for letting me spread my wings and be where I need to be. It is much appreciated.
