Happily Ever After…
April 6, 2012
Passover is finally here. A holiday which I love primarily because of my addiction to matzo, cream cheese and macaroons. Passover used to be a time I would look forward to as a child. As the youngest person in my family, I was always granted with the honor of performing the four questions for our sedar table. If you know me and knew how I was as a kid, being the center of attention was certainly something I did not shy away from. Things are a little different now that I am older and do not have a family of my own yet. Holidays are certainly tough for me. My sister and nephew are really my closest family members to me and since they do not live nearby, I often feel very alone during any type of holiday. I know I will have my own family some day and will be able to create new and special memories with them. As someone who tries to find the positive in everything as much as I can, I look at this weekend as a chance to really do as much as I can for myself. I do not like being alone as I thrive being around my friends and sharing life experiences with others. While I was invited to celebrate easter with Kathy’s family and was invited to a last minute sedar as well, it is just not the same. for me.
I truly believe it is never too late to live happily ever after and I posted this on my facebook page this morning. Believing this is what keeps me going, motivates me each day to work hard and makes me smile every time I think about it. I know I will live happily ever after, I have just learned I have to take the initiative to surround myself with the people who are going to be a part of that. I hope everyone had a wonderful week. Wishing each of you a Happy Passover and Easter. As always, you can find me on Facebook and Twitter and I look forward to connecting with each of you!
