November 1: One of the best lessons life has shown you.

Oh hey, welcome to my NEW blog. Yep, keep reading to see why...

I'm linking up with "A Happy Girl"s Blogember. There are prompts for each day in November, you can find the info here. 

I'm not going to lie, this is not the way I wanted to end this week, blogging about life lessons. It's been a horrible week, I won't even get started, but it ranges from throwing up to my bank account being hacked. Yay... life. But, I think one of the best lessons I've learned, is that life changes. A lot. Things happen, people change, you change, but life goes on.

I'm starting this new blog, because I'm not the person I was when I started Vintage Wanna Bee. I love blogging, and sharing my story, but my heart wasn't into it anymore. I didn't want to blog about my accident, and foot updates, and that's half of what my emails are are asking for updates about my leg. Which, is fantastic, I love all the support I get, but that's not why I want to blog. I want to blog to share who I am, not who I was. I needed a change, and starting over in blogging was an easy way to do that. I know it seems silly to start all over when you already have an "established blog". But, I feel like that part of my life is over, I'm not having surgeries all the time, I'm just living my life the best that I can, and accepting the changes that come with life.

Life is always changing, you are always changing. Sometimes, change can be viewed as a negative thing, but really, it's just you being given the chance to grow and become better. Some change is harder than others, but all change is an opportunity. An opportunity to make the best out of a situation you are given, an opportunity to become a better you, an opportunity to better serve those around you.

So, what has life taught me?

Live long and prosper,


  1. This is brilliant. You are fabulous! :)

    Thanks so much for linking up and for the support.


  2. this is great. I could not agree more with what you wrote. The hardest part is riding with those changes as they happen for me. I always want them to come easy, but they never seem to.
