It’s certainly been a while since my last post but there has been no shortage of action in my life since then. After an extremely stressful year in my career, I am very happy to say that I have moved on to a new opportunity that has already begun to teach me new things, all while being surrounded by an energetically wonderful group of people. I’ll certainly miss some of the relationships I made in the past year, but knowing they are only a phone call away brings great comfort.
I’m also excited to have earned my degree in the last year. Something that I had been working so hard to finish. And with so much more to learn, I also look forward to the new educational goals I am setting for myself. Planning our wedding has also been interesting with each new idea sparking another, sometimes making it hard to decide which way to go. I Never thought I’d be saying this but, I must admit that I can now see why so many of my dear friends have just eloped and enjoyed an amazing honeymoon instead! Lol. Nevertheless, its all about enjoying the ride one day at a time. 😉
Of all the changes and decisions made between this year and the last, I think the most difficult one was agreeing to close down “Gift With a Pink Ribbon, Inc” also known as “Knots4Comfort”, the nonprofit organization I created only a few years ago. It became increasingly difficult to raise money for the cause and unfortunately, many individuals also tried taking advantage of the program/cause sending in a slew of requests to get “free” blankets, forcing us to change the way we filtered requests and distributed the blankets we made.
Still the cause is a great one so I definitely plan to make and donate more blankets in the future on my own accord, and I encourage you to do the same if you feel it in your heart to do so. Local hospitals and treatment centers are always willing to accept these donations and it is guaranteed to make someone’s day.
So I leave you with these words this beautiful Saturday morning… Live your truth and live this moment, for you never know what tomorrow will bring and tomorrow is already a thing of the past.
Elizabeth 🙂 ❤
