This is a blog about a 21 year old learning to love, trust and find the simple joy in life again after the devistating lose her mother.

My mom passed away in May 2009 from Cancer and without sounding cliche I have to say she was my best friend. The last few months leading up to her death I was her primary care taker during the day. During that time we learnt so much about each other and became each others confidance and best friends. After she passed away I felt like I lost everything. I lost alot of my friends, weight, and interest in things I used to love. It’s hard to not have your mom for your wedding day, when you have kids, start a career and go through so many milestones. Everyday was harder than the last and one top of caring for myself I found myself caring for my dad too. He has now became my best friend and I love our relationship. But now it is time to renew my lease on life and get back into the things I used to enjoy.

I realize now that the simple things in life are truely the best. Family is number one to me. And Im excited to embark on a new career as a nail technician. I also found a love for being active. I love getting up and doing yoga, doing zumba, running and just being outside. Travelling, music and fashion are a passion and so is baking and cooking!

    I’m so sorry that you had to go through such trauma so young. To be a primary care taker to someone that ill is a huge undertaking for someone of any age. You should be proud of what you did. And not that this is something you don’t know: Your mother was a stunner. I’m also sorry that she’s not here to watch you as you maneuver through life. I AM glad that you have found a renewed closeness with your father. In a roundabout way, this may never have happened had your mom not fallen ill.

    PS I popped over here to find your email to let you know I replied to your comment on my last post.

    Stay strong. Life still has much to offer 🙂
