Today’s prompt is the word “Pretend”. How many people pretends a life they don’t have? Yes, I was that person.

When I was in elementary school, I would tell my mother how wonderful day I have when the truth I’ve been bullied. I start pretending a happiness a didn’t exist.

As I grow older, pretending became part of me. I started being depressed as early as I can remember. To keep it to myself, I pretend to look happy. The depression got worse over the years, especially when I was pregnant with my younger son.

Finally, I decide it was time to find help and tell my family without being ashamed. I’ve met others who are suffering with depression and I don’t feel alone anymore.

I’m thankful for the support I’ve received from my family. I don’t need to pretend no more.

I’m passionate about many things like reading, cooking, and music, however I’ve days I don’t want to do nothing at all. Last week I’ve begun to plan for the baby shower and clean the house for the party and decorating for Halloween. All that passion and energy was a week ago. During the weekend I began to feel a little depressed, and when I’ve those feelings I get lazy, frustrated and feeling lonely.

Until I start to feel great again, I would take time to relax, read a little bit, play with the dogs, and watch some TV. Just now I turn on the computer to answer a few emails, read some bloggers, and write this prompt. I hope this week I would get better and be on track again. I need to make invitations, plan a few games, and buy a few things for the baby.

Tomorrow is a New Day and I will feel amazing again.



Losing a friend

A sad day

I went to work this morning to find an email from the school principal address to all the staff. An email containing the sad news our beloved custodian passed away the night before in his sleep. I was in shock, my body starts to shake, and I began crying. For a moment I thought it could be a mistake and that I would see him in one of the classrooms. Thoughts and questions began to circulate in my brain. How this happens and why him.

As soon the teachers start to come to work I noticed the tears and the sadness. Then more info came later on, he has a massive heart attack in his sleep. The hard part was the teachers explaining the sad news to the kids. I saw tears and sad faces.

He would be missed by everyone who knew him.  I’m already missing his smile and the way he made our days go smoothly.

Losing a beloved friend who still young it makes me realize we can lose a love one anytime.  I’m heartbroken and what a lesson to learn. We need to take care of the people we love. We need to make sure we tell them how much we love them and how important they are in our life’s.

To my beloved friend I will miss your smile and the respect you have for every single person in that building including the kiddos. I read in some place that we learn something good or bad from every person we meet in our lives. From you it has been all amazing things.  I’ve learn to be happy, be positive, and to care about others.

Good bye my dear friend.
