Counting my blessings

 “Life is what you make of it.”

Boy, this statement sure is true. One year ago today, I was desperately trying to hold onto a relationship that was clearly doomed. I was sad, scared, and lonely all at the same time. I feared every day when I woke up, that THAT would be the day it would all end. And then it did.

“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

I allowed myself some ME time. I gathered my thoughts. I spent time with people that didn’t bring me down. And someone amazing showed me that it’s okay to be vulnerable in a relationship. It’s the trust that allows the vulnerability to not be so scary. And eventually go away.

“Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it.”

Yes! For yeeeeeears, my M.O. was overreaction. Pretty much all my life, people would be either afraid or apprehensive about giving me relatively negative, if not bad, news. It’s a cross I bore way longer than I care to admit, but I finally shed it. And moved on. A little realization and a WHOLE LOT of therapy, helped me immensely.

“While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy.”

I’m thankful every single day, that I found someone as imperfect and amazing as SS. He compliments my way of life with his silliness. And I wouldn’t trade him in for a different model.
