Celebrate the Small Things – September 19, 2014

Hello my beloved bloggers. I know you all must be wondering what’s been going on with me. I haven’t been blogging for a little bit, and I’ve neglected my Celebrate the Small Things meme for quite a while. To be honest, I’ve been in a really bad place for the past couple of months and felt I had nothing to celebrate. Recently, after receiving a well needed kick in the pants by several concerned, caring, and loving people,  I realized that I do indeed have many things to celebrate – both small and LARGE. So I’m going to hop to it now…

Today is Friday, September 19, 2014 and it’s time for the weekly meme ‘Celebrate the Small Things’ brought to us by Viklit at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author.

I will start off by telling you the HUGE NEWS I have to celebrate first:

  • After having been estranged from my brother for almost 13 years, we have finally re-united (not personally yet, but I’ll be making some travel arrangements soon enough). I’ve also found my niece, nephew, and sister-in-law too. (I was entering the hospital when I initially reached out to them, so I haven’t spoken to them yet, but I am oh, so excited!)
  • I joined the Fellowship of the Dragon, which is a small group of bloggers whose purpose is to make sure we reach the goals we set for ourselves. We cheer each other on when we succeed, and gently kick each others butts when we slack. This is just what I need. I’m throwing my personal goals in there too!!
  • I spent a few days in NJ to see a couple of friends going through a rough patch. It feels nice to be needed, although I wish it was for more pleasant things.
  • I’m dedicating more time and energy to home physical therapy.
  • I AM STILL ALIVE!!!!! My spirit may have been torn, but it will NEVER, EVER be broken!


What have you celebrated this week?



About My Miracle Life

I'm a writer, blogger, avid reader, book reviewer, sub-arachnoid hemorrhage and stroke survivor, moving forward in my recovery and trying to advocate for stroke and brain hemorrhage awareness and prevention. I'm also slowly working towards independence, driving, my first novel, a memoir and a series of short stories. I've been lucky to have a very small network of close friends to guide me; I've been even luckier to have found an online 'family' of sorts to help me through the rough times.
