One month

Today it has been one month I moved out from D's.
It was a rough month, with lots of soul searching and it's only the beginning.
Now that I am single I have to take care of myself and my health.
I have to learn how to let go of anxieties and stress that doesn't belong to me.
I have so many challenges ahead of me and I sure hope to be able to succeed.

I have really bad days, I have ok days and a few good one.
My goal is to turn this around.
I'd rather have really great days, a few ok days and not really any bad days.
It will be a long process, but I believe in myself.

I have to relax and come at peace with myself.
I want to get up in the morning and feel the sun on my skin and embrace the new day that was given to me.

Today I decided that I needed to reward myself for the efforts that I do.
Here is what I've decided (and you girls will love it), as of today every payday (every 2 weeks) I will treat myself and buy two pieces clothing.
I cant wait till next pay day now, it motivates me to work even harder on myself, it is all positive and it is a win-win situation.

All of us women are fabulous in many different ways. Let's celebrate what makes us Fabulous!Post a picture of you looking fabulous, list something fabulous that you've done, spotlight a fellow blogger that you think is beyond fabulous, or just list something that makes you the fabulous woman you are.

My fabulous moment of the week is finding this picture of me and my best friend taken last weekend at the parc.
I think my best friend is absolutely fabulous! I don't know what I would do without her!

My forecast

As I have been living underneath this little gray cloud, I must say that the forecast has a little bit of sunshine.

I have asked for help and I am convinced that I will get better.
I am realist and I know it wont happen overnight and that it will not be easy.
I am trying to think of myself and only myself, which is hard.

My family is so comprehensive, I don't know what I would do without them.
My godson is a ray of sunshine (so are his 2 twin sisters)
My best friends is miles away, but is so close to me in my heart.

I have lost a few followers, which makes me sad, but I have not been a good blogger lately and I apologize.
I must say to all of you out there, you are all little rays of sunshine in my world and I thank you for that.

For the past few weeks/months I have been in a gray area in my life.
Nothing is clear, nothing is black or white.
It seems that I constantly have periods like this one in my life.

In all areas of my life (family, love, friends, work) at the moment there are things bugging me, keeping me awake at night, bringing tears to my eyes.

I feel like I want to share and I feel that I share too much.
I feel the need to talk, but I need to shut up.

I have to learn how to let go and let things fall into place by themselves, but it is such a hard process.
I have to learn how to stop the what if's.

I have so many questions in my head, so many emotions in my heart.
I don't know how to deal with all of this without hurting myself or others.

I dream about moments of the past.
I dream about moments of the future.
And I seem to be avoiding moments of the present.

Street gangs

A few weeks ago the daughter if a co-worker of mine got into trouble with gang members.

She saw a little girl that was in trouble and intervene in the situation and everything turned against her.
The few days that followed this day were terrible; she got beaten up and threaten multiple times.
Police and school worked together and the main little girl that was the trouble maker got kick out a school and placed into a closed facility for troubled kids.
But later that same week, other members of the group told her it wasn’t over. And what do you now a few days later, my co-worker got a phone call from school saying her daughter a tumbled down the stairs…coincidence or not? She needed to go to the hospital.

It’s terrible to see 12, 13 and 14 years old with knives and guns, threatening others…aren’t they supposed to be playing and being kids?
While growing up I wasn’t living in the city so I never saw much besides fields of corns and cows.
It is a rough world out there. As much as I love the city, I don’t know if I would want to raise my kids here; it is scary.

Do any of you have experiences/ stories that are related to gangs?

Fabulous Friday

It's Fabulous Friday once again at My Life in Purple

What's fabulous this week in my world?

Well It might not seem like much to some of you but I believe my closet is absolutely fabulous. Ever since I moved I have been wanting to tell you about it. It isn't big, but it's the first time that I have a closet I can actually walk in and that I don't have enough stuff to fill it :)

To bad you cant see the right side is almost completely empty...gotta go shopping :)

What's fabulous about you this week?

A page from my past

A while ago one of my friends on her blog posted an old page of her diary from years ago. When I moved and played around with my boxes I found many old diaries of mine.

So just for the kick of it here is what was going on in my life on May 14th 2006.

This morning me and Jo went out to see the garage sales in my old neighborhood.
I spent the afternoon with Karim running around like every Sunday.
My ex Ben came over for dinner he needed to talk.
I don't have any new from Yan, but it's mothers day so it's ok.
I got into another argument with Claude-Étienne *rolling eyes* it seems it's all we do.

I find it hilarious, maybe I'll do this again with you on a day from the past where there was more drama ;)

Proud and embarrassed

Last night my team won, the team of my Girly girl crush.

I am so proud...but

Some of the fans are so stupid I cant even start with this how angry it makes me.
Each year if our team gets a little but far in the Stanley cup playoffs there are idiots that take advantage of the moment to break store windows, burn cars and steal stuff. Why the hell want to get arrested while showing off your team colors.

The worst part of this it aint over, our team is still winning, this means there will be more of this...

What an embarrassment!

Hi everyone,

I am back from my craziness.
Here is what has been going on (here’s a long post)

-Me and D decided that it would be best for both of us if I moved out, so I went apartment hunting, for a great little place that I love in a part of town that I adore. My dad and my sister took a day off and helped me to cleaned the place and carry all the boxes I had. On Sunday D and one of my friends moved all my furniture (including a new couch, new shelves, new coffee tables) The same night my dad and my mom came back to help me with the finish some little thing. I still have to buy a few things as my walls are empty, but it starting to look like home J

-The triplets (my godson and sisters) are doing great getting fatter everyday. The parents had a hard time seeing them get their firsts vaccines.

-Work has been completely insane and it doesn’t look like anything is going to calm down. I love it; it makes the days go by so much faster.

-My best friend came over for a surprise visit and she met a guy in her part of the world (I am very happy for her) I am sad that she finally decided not to move back to Montreal anymore, but thanks to technology we still speak or chat almost everyday.

-I am in love with my star crush Jaroslav Halak, and he is kicking ass in the playoffs for the Stanley cup J

-I saw the heart doctor again and I have more tests to do at the beginning of June. He said not to worry, but to still hold off going to gym until he gets the results of the tests.

-I got all the result form all the test I did for the weeks I was sick after I came back from vacation and all is ok, but I am still not feeling 100%. My family doctor says it is all related to anxieties (and God knows I am anxious like crazy)

- As soon as I finish paying off all the little expenses my move cost me, I think I will get another tattoo. I have been thinking about it for years and I don’t understand why I haven’t gotten it.

-For my summer vacation this year I don’t have anything planned, but I would love to go to Nashville Tennessee. It was supposed to be my first trip ever a few years ago and I didn’t go. So why not this summer?

-I had over 400 posts to catch up on Google reader. I went through them last night and went to bed way too late (writing for work so I don’t fall asleep)

This week is still full of things do to, stuff to buy and stuff to hang, but this weekend I do plan to finally relax (I hope)

How are you doing?
