On This Day 1 Year Ago…. Justice was Served

June 28, 2016 was the day justice was finally served. It was also the day I started to reclaim my life as I once knew it, before falling for all the lies, abuse, destruction, and devastation that comes along with loving the narcissist. My favorite quote from on that day was “You have been before this court 5 times for domestic assault against the same household victim. We, The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, find you Guilty and you are being sentence to 18 Months in the Plymouth House of Correction”.

Since that day my life has moved at very quickly…. and so many wonderful things began to happen and today I can honestly say.. I have recreated my life and I am flying free!!

In the End..

I’ve always loved this quote but today it hit me deeply and profoundly. My family has been dealing with 2 devasting losses over the last 3 weeks. Heroin addiction is a beast all by itself, it’s now robbing us of almost an entire generation.  They lived hard and they loved even harder! Rest easy now, your struggles are over. ❤️ Hate the disease, not the addict  

There’s  a Reason for every Season..

My grandfather, James J Laraia, my first idol, my first love, left me with his most favorite quote he said “love one, love many, but love yourself best of any”. 

This quote was my family’s motto. I saw it handwritten and taped, as a “little girl”, to every refrigerator our small, but beautiful family had. I didn’t understand it, to that “little girl” it sounded selfish.

My family would say their own interpretation of what it meant to them but When I was that” little girl” I remember my Grandpa L saying “you can’t fully love someone else, until you can fully love yourself.

My grandfather was larger than life to me… his words that he left that “little girl” with was a journey of understanding what they meant.  

I think I finally get it… 

I love you Grampa “L” ❤️
