HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!!!!


Yes, it's me... I am celebrating my birthday TODAY.

I am so thankful for TODAY.  Every day we have is truly a gift from God and a reason to be thankful. Yes, even in the HARD times, the trials and the days we think... Can we go on? Today just sucks. This is REAL life. I choose to be HAPPY and look for the GOOD or really the GREAT in each day. Yes, I am not letting LIFE kick my butt. Why should I? Why should you?  Life can hurt. People can hurt us. We face and lose people that we LOVE more than life. We are STRONGER than we realize. 


I look at birthdays different. It's a DAY to celebrate!!!! I live each day with being grateful. I enjoy the simple things. It's really the small things that "really" matter.



When Ty died, it was the worst thing I have EVER endured. I had lost my mother and this was almost unbearable. I watched Ty fight like a warrior to live. He fought so hard. He did not want to die. We rallied around him and encouraged him to FIGHT. Oh how he wanted to stay with us. He endured the worst treatments so he could live. He could not feel his feet, he lost his desire to eat, he lost so MUCH "trying" to live. 

So today... as I got in the shower- I prayed. I prayed with tears streaming down my face. I thought of my mother.  I thought of my dad. I thought about Tyler. I thought of all of the loss, the pain and how I am a better, stronger and more appreciative person because of EACH of them. My sweet mother was unwed and was not prepared to give birth to me at the age of nineteen. My dad wanted her to abort me, but she refused. He did not want me. He was married and I was a huge mistake. My mother was so in love with him. Yes, writing my book has been good for me. I realize that I am ME today because of EVERYTHING I have been through. I am not a mistake. I KNOW THIS... it took me a toll on me as a child. I knew my father never loved or wanted me. I share things in my book that I have never shared. It's deeply personal and I knew I needed to share my life story in hopes it will help others. You can endure HARD things and still live a happy life. I never wanted to use the abuse I have faced or use it as an excuse to be less than I want to be. DEEP HERE.... 

I choose to SMILE... Trust me, I have days that I don't feel like smiling. I simply have learned to love ME. I love my imperfections. I love that I am emotional and that I cry easier. I care too much. I am the ultimate people pleaser. I guess you could say, I have learned to ACCEPT me.... simply as I am. 


Things happen for a reason. I am a firm believer in this. I am a girl who is inspired every single day myself to be MORE and to accept the lessons given to me every day. I am often impressed to see or do something because I look for opportunities around me. On Monday, I had the opportunity to go to dinner with Bridget and Ashley Mitchell. This is the owner of BIG TOUGH GIRL. She is coming to help me KICK OFF my TC Vegas EVENT 2015 in Henderson in September. This event has SOLD OUT every single year since day one. I love that it is "more" than crafting. It is an event that is about "inspiring" those who come. It is about "friendship, good times and having a time out from obligations." It is so much more than the projects. I want those that come to feel like they are empowered and are better for coming. This year I decided the event theme would be BE FIERCE & FABULOUS.



I have felt that in life we are often too hard on ourselves. We are constantly told by others that if we are different, if we are successful, if we are not perfect (who is?) THEN we should change. I have experienced first hand how other women try to tear other women down. It's a horrible vicious cycle. I believe as women we should "pull each other up." I do my Vegas event and all my events to share my heart and I believe in the GOOD that we each can do by loving ourselves and loving others. Life can kick us down HARD. Why should we do it to each other? The one thing that I have learned is to "not listen" to the negative voices that exist within each of us. The self doubt, the guilt and the judgment we can impose on ourselves will tear us down. Then we have the "outside" world that wants to judge us too. It can be hard if we are not strong and confident in who and what we are about. I am passionate about hosting events where women and men can come together and feel inspired, uplifted and loved. The work to host these events is overwhelming on so many levels, but it is so WORTH IT. 



ASHLEY, BRIDGET AND TERESA
I am so thankful that Ashley inspired me to SHARE my voice more again. Listen and share openly as I feel it. I have found myself holding back. I have found myself not blogging as much. This will change. This is who I am. I recently got an email, it was about "lights" in a house. Is said, "HOW DO YOU SHINE?" I thought...

I guess I am like a LIGHT. Do I shine? Do I SHINE bright or am I dull? Do I share and do what is right? I want to do and be more. 



I realize that I am happy. I have found love again when I never thought this was possible. I am deeply in love with my husband and our life. I love my children so very much. I see the blessings that God has given me.


Brian loves me just as I am.
Brian doesn't even like country music and he found out that I love Luke Bryan and he bought us concert tickets for my birthday. THIS guy melts me. He had me in tears. He came into my life like a tornado. He captured my very broken heart and simply loved me. He accepted me as I am and and all the hurt that came with me. He knew the hurt and all the pain that my kids and I had faced and were still facing. I know that God was mindful of my needs. I know he was mindful of Brian's needs. He so deserved to be loved and adored. He was broken too in many ways. I never thought I would find love again. I never thought life could be this way for me. I was completely not expecting this man or the LOVE STORY that would happen. I watch him with my kids and I am so taken back by his gentle, kind and loving ways. I know that Tyler would have wanted this for me and for our children.

*daily SWIG runs are the BEST! (follow my personal page on instagram- teresacollinswebber)

Please don't put off your happiness. Don't waste ONE day in regret or living a life that is not filled with joy. Don't let others tell you, you are not good enough. You deserve it all!!!!! Go and do and truly LIVE. I know that is WHAT my family, Brian and I are doing now with our children. Just two days ago, Brian bought tickets for us to fly tomorrow for one night to Denver. We are going to a MLB baseball game and flying home Saturday night. This is living life and choosing to spend our time living life to the fullest. I hope you will too!!!!
