Reconnecting

Ever wonder what reconnecting with people really is? I find myself in the last year reconnecting with people from all eras of my life. I don't do it because I feel an emptiness, I do it because it's a reminder that I had so many people that influenced my life.

I'm grateful to have the opportunity to reconnect with so many friends and family members in my life and be able to show my gratitude through friendship. Reconnecting with our past is important in order for us to understand where we are going and who we are today.

I sometimes feel I was floating through my grammar and high school years. I don't think I really woke up until I had my oldest daughter, that was when I said, Okay, let's get moving. Since 1996 I've been on a mission to better my life and achieve all the things I have up to today. It's that same drive and those people from my past that made me push myself to where I'm at now, to be that person that they once knew but to also believe in myself the way they did in me all those years.

I am grateful for all those that influenced my life.
