Reflections of April

April is one of those milestone months for me. I married and divorced in the month of April, I bought my first car in the month of April, I moved 3000 miles in the month of April. I had gastric bypass in the month of April. The man of my dreams, and now husband, was born in April.

Yesterday, I was reflecting on how many major milestones happened in the month of April. It hit me, it’s spring, everything feels fresh and new. There is hope and determination in everything. The flowers are bursting out of the ground, the very earth we stand on shows is strength, determination, and beauty.

Yesterday, I took a walk with a friend along the beach. At the end of our walk we faced a staircase. It occurred to me about 3/4 of the way up, that I was not winded. Another milestone! I am healthy!!!! I may not be “skinny” but I am healthy…

FYI, the staircase may seem like a long climb, but getting to the top, and appreciating how far you have come feels amazing!!!!
