The First of November is NOT the First Day of Christmas

The First of November is NOT the First Day of Christmas

I mean I honestly can not wait to go home to a bright Christmas tree...but I can wait till after Thanksgivings for that.

On halloween I was asked "guess what tomorrow is" and I was like what because honestly nothing came to my mind. It was halloween and tomorrow is none the less November first. I sat and pondered it for a second and finally asked "what".


At this point I laughed and shrugged it off because it is not the first day of Christmas and I will never consider November first the first day of Christmas. But do not get me wrong I love Christmas but you guy rush it way too much. It is already November which is insane and once Christmas hits it will be 2018 in a matter of 6 days after. The days are rushed because our society chooses to rush it.

November is the month of thanksgiving and the month where it is still fall but also could potentially snow at any point in the day or weeks. Before we rush to Christmas right away, here are some things to be thankful for in the month of November.

1. Be thankful for your Family

Be thankful for the wonderful family you have that supports you no matter what. They have given you everything and they deserve your respect more than you know.

2. Be thankful for your dog (or pets)

This is Baylee A.K.A the best dog on planet earth! I love her to the moon and back.

3. Be thankful for the opportunities you had this year

Yes, I was 5 feet away from Shawn Mendes back in August and I still cry about it to this day!

I got to experience Summer Bash for the first time and saw Niall Horan and Liam Payne solo...I miss One Direction so much.

These are just some of my memories and opportunities. You all should be thankful for every opportunity you had because those opportunities do not come around often.

4. Be thankful for the friends you have in your life, even if there are not many.

Yes, I do have friends...well...a only two. But hey you should still be grateful for them!

There are many things to be thankful for and I surly do have more to be thankful for than just these four things above.

But before we move on to Christmas, lets enjoy the little bit of fall we might have left, enjoy turkey dinner and being thankful for everything in your life, enjoy the craziness of black Friday and just be patient for Christmas. When December first comes around then you can tell me it is the first day of Christmas.

I mean I honestly can not wait to go home to a bright Christmas tree...but I can wait till after Thanksgivings for that.

Renewing Old Friendships In A New Year

It's quite difficult.

A few months ago, I wrote an article about friendships that were lost, whether by fault of my own or not. Well, I suppose this is a follow-up to that. As it is a new year, I am starting to think about - among other things - whether it would be worth it to attempt to reconnect with these old friends.

As we are increasingly finding out each day at present, you never know what happens on a day-to-day basis. One day, we can be there, but the next, we could suddenly be gone. And without getting the chance to "mend fences", or "repair bridges", or, in other words, reconnect or repair these old friendships that we, at one point, cherished.

But how to go about doing that?

A Letter to my Guardian Angels in Heaven

I try my best to make each of you proud everyday.

 To my Guardian angels,

  If I could have one more minute with you I wouldn't take it for granted. I'd wrap you up in the biggest hug and wouldn't let go of you. God, do I miss you.  I miss hearing your voices. You were so important in my life, I took it for granted. Nobody ever knows how hard it is to lose someone you love until it happens to you.

I want you to know that, I try my best to make each of you proud everyday. I only hope that I am doing enough. 

The days with out are long and hard. I find myself in tears all the time. I cry when I hear songs, when I see something that I know you'd love, and sometimes I just cry until my eyes are swollen. When you left this earth you took a piece of my heart with you. That's the hardest part, knowing that you can't ever get those pieces of your heart back. They are gone. 

People say that you're in a better place but , I can't help to think that you'd be better off down here on earth would be a better place for you, with your family and friends. I know you fought like hell to hang on to every last moment you could.  Sometimes I would just take a mental picture of you doing the stupidest things, just so I would never forget that moment.

It's been a rough,  Hell its been rough for me ever since you left this precious earth. I sometimes can't even remember what your hugs feel like, it has felt like an eternity since I have gotten one. There will never be day in my life where you don't cross my mind.  

If there's one thing that I really need you to know it would be this......

I miss you like hell, but I am so lucky to have the greatest guardian angels in heaven

I love and miss you everyday.


The person you left behind
