Dear 17, Getting to Know You, My Story

Dear 17, (on your 19th wedding anniversary)

Dear 17,

It’s been 19 years today… if you only knew the ride we were gonna have… you would have learned more about getting over that anxiety sooner, but this isn’t about that, this is about you, today…

I am



in love

a wonderful mom




but not often enough

still with barriers

not enough boundaries

always trying

to do

to stop

to be

to learn

but still just me.

I don’t want to be anyone else.

I like who I am.

I like what I attract to me.

I control so much more than I know, and I’m finally figuring that out!

I don’t trust myself enough, but I’m learning.


today is the day for new beginnings.

it’s so cliche’

I’m not a fan of cliche’s

I’m a fan of positivity

we need more of that

so there will be more cans and less can’ts

more dreams

more plans


more of just putting one foot in front of the other.

It’s really not that hard.

Don’t fight or flight and especially don’t freeze… that freezes the emotions.

Frozen emotions are like ice, they don’t flow.

And, we always need to flow….


Until next time, Love Ya, Me.

Turn can'ts into cans
