Merry Christmas to all and to all a good nite!

I'd just like to take a minute out of a very Hectic day to wish the blogosphere a very Merry Christmas!
I am usually not a very sentimental person but this year Christmas feels different for me, in a good way I might add. Last year I was still devastated by the loss of my ex and didn't want to be festive in any way. However, this holiday season I am in a much better place emotionally. I am looking forward to spending the day with my family and I am even planning on toasting my wonderful parents for their love and support.
I am coming to the end of my schooling and I am swelled with pride and joy. I couldn't have done any of this without the support of my family and I need to take the time out and recognize this. It seems a lifetime ago that I was so self-centered and destructive. When I was addicted to heroin, nothing else mattered to me and I could never have imagined I'd be graduating from school, working in a medical office or paying my bills. I've come a long way, but still my journey continues. I don't allow myself to get overly proud, cockiness will take me back to the places I've worked so hard on leaving behind, I never ever forget that.
So anyways I'd like to wish everybody a happy and healthy holiday season and good luck in the new year!
On a side note I was introduced to a new blog this morning and I thought I'd share it with you all, go check out: its pretty awesome!


  1. Great link -

    “The key to change… is to let go of fear.”…
    Gotta remember that one.

  2. Merry Christmas to you too. It sounds like you are going to have a wonderful New Year!!!

  3. It's awesome that things are looking better for you this year. (: Merry Christmas, my friend. (:

  4. Merry Christmas to you too!! And a rocking 2010 too.

    I'm in a better place emotionally these days too. It took me about 3 years to come to terms with my ex-husband's suicide. I still struggle sometimes with that, but I know it's not my fault.

    good for you for getting your shit together. Onward and upward.

  5. IT,
    yeah its a pretty great site huh? Glad you checked it out, merry xmas to you!

    I sure do hope I have a wonderful new year, hope you have one too!

    its all in how you "look" at things; you could have a better year too! Merry Xmas my friend

    Holy crap I had no idea about your husband, so sorry to hear that. I had a cousin who committed suicide and that is something I don't think you can ever quite forget. so sad when things happen like that. I have felt that hopelessness at times in my life but thankfully I didn't follow thru with my plans, merry christmas to you too!

  6. Merry Christmas to you too!

    I sent out a letter to my bloggy besties this morning, and I don't have your email so you didn't get it!

    The short of it is:
    I love you.
    Thank you.

    So there you go. I love you, and thank you.
