i was in a very different place around this time 3 years ago. darkness, despair and sadness surrounded me daily but this month 3 years ago, i was finally cured of my depression and every june, i think about where i was and how far i've come. while i don't focus on what happened, i will also never forget it because it'll always serve as a reminder that there's nothing more important than life, family and friends. i've written about my journey several times; all of the posts can be found here.
the last two years have been totally awesome - happiness, love and laughter surround me.
my depression put a strain on my marriage and it took us a long time to get back what we had but my marriage is stronger than ever. i have the best, most supportive and loving husband in the world who is all kinds of sexy man-hunk. i know, barf. sorry y'all.
i love being a mother and it still makes me sad that i lost that first year with kayla.
i am head over heels madly in love with kayla. she's the most brilliant, adorable, gorgeous and hilarious kid ever. i can't imagine my life without her.
i thought i had a close relapse towards something which i thought was my depression coming back but after a session with my psychiatrist, it's gone (thank goodness). since my depression, i'm now aware of my triggers and what i need to do to get back on track.
when work was going on, it was fun, challenging and most importantly, interesting. to be honest, i was a little disappointed that i had to leave (the project) because it was my baby.
i haven't been this healthy in years and i'm so proud of myself. i've been feeling so awesome because i'm doing ass-kicking workouts that are changing my body; like, insanity ass-kicking. i'm going on 6 months strong and i pat myself on the back every single time.
i'm off for the summer and loving every.single.minute. you all must be tired of my life of a housewife posts and tweets by now.
with the gorgeous summer weather, i want to spend more time with my awesome friends. wonderland? zoo? playdates? shopping? dinners/drinks? i'm available!!! last weekend we had an impromptu bbq and everyone - including the kidlets - had a blast. i want to have more of those so friends, consider this your warning.
here's to an awesome summer!
