It's no secret...

It's no secret that #disneyland is my happy place.


I know, I know; me and millions of others, right? Here is the thing... there was a time after my husband died I couldn’t picture ever enjoying Disneyland again. How could I without him? It didn’t happen all at once. But, eventually I made a decision. I decided that I get to decide what his death means to me. I get to decide if I’m going to fight reality, or accept it. I get to decide what I’m going to do to live a beautiful life. And guess what?! A beautiful life does NOT mean a perfect life. It often means a beautiful mess! Life is happy and sad and hard and carefree and tragic and triumphant. Only I get to decide where I’ll put my focus, how I’ll frame my past and how I’ll write my future. You get to decide too. Since we get to decide, let’s make it full of as many in our “happy place” days as we can! Ok?
