Halloween Theme:

As for numbers 2-5 of this 5 for Friday I honestly don’t have anything.  It’s been such a crazy week, and I had some life changing things happen that I don’t want to discuss but my strength was definitely tested this week.  Every little thing triggered some kind of emotion.  Whether it be anger, sadness, or just no emotion whatsoever.  I don’t like to bring religion into my blog or anything like that because everyone believes what they want to believe but I know that now I have to trust God/a Higher Power (for those of you who don’t believe, don’t want to offend anyone) that he knows what he’s doing and that he knows I’ll find the strength to get through it. 

I can’t even really think of what happened this week because it’s kind of a blur.  I feel like all of the days have been jumbled into one that I just can’t remember.  I do remember a few things that happened that kept me positive.  That first picture was the cutest surprise at my desk.  It was a belated birthday present from fellow blogger Dear Sunny and her man friend.  The elephants are handmade from Thailand and they are the most adorable little lanterns.  Then one of my other coworkers knew something was up because I wasn’t my cheery self and she got me a Lion TY Beanie Baby.  I love the lion because it looks like Simba.  That’s not the name that was on the tag, but I named him Simba haha.  He’s pictured below.

I know that my strength is being tested this week to show myself that I’m still capable of being a strong individual.  I think it’s because I’ve been really down on myself, and now the tables are turned where I really need to step up.  I will overcome what is going on and I will keep moving forward.  I am determined.
