Today I post about FAMILY!!! Friday was a sad day for me. I had to leave the island. Originally I thought I would be spending Xmas by myself until Dimphy invited me over to spend the holidays with those I love the most. And it was amazing. The island is my happy place and these people my family. ❤️
What I did this holiday was put family first. And it helped me realize - My family is who I say they are. I don’t speak with my mom and have spent far too long not connecting to the family close to me already. And I realize I am missing out. My best friend of 20+ years, my bro and his wife, their kids and my Nimpo family. It could all just pass me by if I don’t make an effort!!!
So many people I know have dysfunctional families (like everyone, cuz what is normal?) and are upset because they want to be close to their mom or dad or siblings. And most of the time it is unhealthy to have those relationships. Remember that - your family is who you say they are. How sad to put expectations on those you know will never change & how exciting to be able to hand pick an even better family? To choose who you spend time with. Life doesn’t always go as planned, but you are blessed no matter your story!!! I miss you guys so much already.
