So if you know me at all, you know how annoyingly sentimental I can be at times and maybe about things that I shouldn’t be. Life is a series of milestones and events that change us in ways that you never imagine. With that in mind, today is the second anniversary of “break up day”
I feel like it needs to marked somehow because it was definitely a day that changed the course of my life and in most ways for the better. When I remember that time, I think about being devastated but more so, I think about the people around me and I know you’ve all heard this before, but it was a time where I never felt more loved.
My friends and family moved in so close and carried me until I was ok to stand on my feet on again. Instead of dwelling on the pain I went through, I really wish I had the words to tell them all, how much they mean to me. But words fail me because how to do you thank people for loving you so much when you needed it most.
So there a couple things I would like to remind you of today that I sometimes forget –
- Be kind to the people you encounter. You have no idea what they are dealing with.
- Change is really, really hard, but you will survive and although it’s scary, it’s usually for the best.
- Life is whizzing past us at warp speed. Make sure you are living it and not waiting for some arbitrary time or milestone to start enjoying it.
- You are a grown up too. Nobody gets to be the boss of you without your permission.
Maybe it’s the sunshine, maybe it’s my fancy dresser, maybe its some pill I take, maybe it’s my hormone levels for this 20 minutes or maybe its just how things are, but I am content, even happy, planning trips and overwhelmed with gratitude.
