Wow I didn't realize that so much time has passed, over a year and a half to be exact.
Alot has happened over this time. I've been through major highs and lows. The lows greatly overshadowing any highs I've had during this whole time. But that's not what this post is about, got a little side-tracked there *ahem*.
You know how you wake up one morning and decide you are going to pursue something with all the energy you can possible muster up and you end up going through with it for a couple of days and then forgetting all about it? I think its when you put too much energy into something, after a while it just burns out you know, and there's none left to pursue whatever life-changing thing you swore you'd pursue. I'm not going to do that this time, blogging is something that I love to do, I know I know my 18 month gap begs to differ but it really is. So I'm going back to doing what I love.
If I've learnt anything during this time it's this; the world never stops for your grief, life goes on as if nothing has happened so you can choose to live in your grief-stricken state and be miserable or move past that and try finding the good in life again. Find whatever it is that you love, that makes you happy, focus on that and just BE happy. Happiness really IS a choice, life is made so much easier when you make the choice to simply be happy. Now I'm not saying its always easy to make that choice but its important to try as much as you can to overcome the bad and focus on the good.
After all, life goes on anyway and the world keeps spinning regardless. So why waste your life away?
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future,
not to anticipate the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.

The past is a ghost, the future a dream, and all we ever have is now.
