My Theory

It's not too often I get personal with you guys but every now and again I provide a sneak peak into my REAL life. I'll start by saying these past few months have shown me there is nothing like family. Although you may not always get along, your family will always be there for you. They will hold you up when you feel weak, put you back together when someone breaks you apart, they will tell you, you are great when you feel you are at your worst and they will be there for you when everyone you THOUGHT would be gone. If I haven't described your family I pray that in some way you can receive the same love and support I've just described.

My family has given me so much strength and support I couldn't fathom life without them. I had a very strained relationship with my father for many years and one day I finally decided to let go of my animosity and accept him as he is. Surprisingly enough, we are finally to the point where we are cool. We talk, laugh and reminisce and I am continuously comforted and relieved we repaired our relationship. My mother will go from nagging me to high fiving me in a blink of an eye. She will be my mother one second and my girlfriend the next effortlessly. My sister lives pretty far away but through text messaging and facebook we speak so frequently throughout the day you would think she lived up the block. And as for my brother, well although he is 6yrs younger than me, he has declared himself my "big" brother and he does the best job making sure I am always ok.

I can write all day about the importance of family and a how irreplaceable they are but I think you guys get the point. Embrace, love, respect and appreciate your family because you only get one.


  1. I would like to quote a Nick Jr.'s songtress:
    "When you're in my heart, you're my family. When I'm in your heart, you're my family. Father, mother, sisters, brothers, cousins, friends, son and daughters, uncles, aunts, and grandparents. I'm so glad, you're my family..I'm so glad you're my family"
    It takes a crisis to learn who your family is. Now a crisis is defined as a pivotal change-whether good or bad. I have had many crises in my days, and I am glad to say, that my family has never let me down. I had no expectations, and so I was never disappointed. I take the good fam with the bad fam, 'cause the bad fam help to make me better at being someone's family.
    And a shout out to my new family..The bookclub ladies that never read their books, thanks for accepting me into your family!
