Cents of Style Life Is Series...Life Is Beautiful

As part of Cents of Style's "Life Is.." campaign, I wanted to show you my "Life Is..." slogan: 

Life Is Beautiful

Life Is Beautiful

In 2013 our family suffered 2 unexpected heartbreaking losses.  With those losses, I, like many other people who have lost someone, made promises to embrace life's moments, appreciate those around me and to take care of myself.  For a few months those promises lasted.

Everyday life and stresses made the days pass quicker.  Taking time to look around and feel the beauty of life stopped.  My days were filled with just accomplishing and getting over daily tasks.  I never did get around to take care of my health.  I've had a known thyroid issue for a few years and there have been a few times I would be really sick for unexplained reasons. Soo sick I went to the ER.  I've known of my issues but I had cast them aside to deal with them later.

In October 2014, things changed.  I got sick again, but it was different.  Without going into deeper details.  I thought it was it for me. I felt like my soul was leaving.  All I could think about was that I should have given my children and husband more of me. I could have been so much more for them. 

I got better, but after a few tests they still didn't know what was wrong.  I felt betrayed by my body.  Most days I would stay in my bedroom in the dark.  Going out was difficult.  I would then go back to the ER two more times within 2 months.  The doctors would find different things wrong with my body but not the source of my initial problem.

My January birthday passed and nothing changed.  By February, the birth month of my two children, I decided I wanted to feel life again. With time, the patience and support of my husband and children, and a few huge lifesyle changes, I have gotten better, but I'm not 100% the same.  Now I take the time to appreciate life, even the simplist things. Life is too beautiful to spend it in a dark room all alone in despair.

I chose Life Is Beautiful as my slogan because I truely believe that life is beautiful and should never be taken for granted.

Life Is Beautiful. Life is too beautiful to miss.

Life Is Beautiful.  Be a part of Life's Beauty!

What is your "Life is..." slogan?
