Grace and Purpose

Another weekend comes to an end.  I must admit I am excited about a new day, new week, new ideas, new horizons. I am changing but the core of who I am is the same.  Isn't the goal of life to grow and evolve.  Why do we fight the inevitable so hard?  Let's commit to moving forward with grace and purpose.

My Name is Erica

What can I say, I am back.

I have no idea what direction I want to take this space.  I have time to figure that out right?  2014 was full of loss.  My mother passed away on January 21 and my oldest dearest friend Jennifer passed away a few days later.  I had to be strong but that only lasted for a week.   I broke down about a week after her funeral and spent a whole year wading through my life.  Trying to figure out how to be a wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, cousin and employee without two women who meant so much to me was a challenge,

With the devastation came my inability to take care of myself.  I am not making excuses. I let myself go.  All the way.  I am embarrassed to even put pictures of myself on social media because I am a mess.

On New Years Day I had a break through camouflaged as a breakdown and decided that I would honor my mother by living, loving, and taking care of myself.  I have a three year old who needs me to be there for her through many stages and phases.  I can not do that in this body.  This space will not be dedicated to weight loss.  Just getting my life in order.  It has been awhile since I wrote just for the fun of it.  So here we go!
