When we start out in life, we don't just go and immediately pick a person to spend the rest of our lives with. In fact, many of us pick and pick again. Its not about picking, but being, just be. There is something amazing about waking up next to a person who not only is your best friend, but your love, your life and your partner I crime. Lucky are the ones who know what I am talking about.

This is a subject I am still learning so much about. Family means so many different things to people. It could be the friends a person has chosen to surround themselves with or be by blood or even a combination of both.
I had a skewed view regarding my family of origin. I feel like I never truly knew what a family was actually supposed tone or not, but I did not get the warm fuzzies from mine. Ever. You see, I learned how to call my relatives idiots for no apparent reason at all and instead of learning to forgive and stay in contact; I was shown the compete opposite. Now, it also about choices and I chose to believe what I learned for many years. I would be remiss to say that if I could go back and do things differently, I would. I have learned the true meaning of family: love. Unconditional and without any judgement at all. No filters and no bullshit. I cherish the people in my life who I consider famy. Period. Whether they are blood or not; I love you all with my heart.
