I had this as the background of my work computer one month into the job. I read it each and every day sitting alone in the staff room at 7:00am getting the courage to face the day.
It’s no secret that the last year of my life was really difficult. It’s sometimes heartbreaking when friends tell me that I appear to be so happy now, like the old me, in comparison to the sort of shell of I person I represented last year.
But I try, instead, to give thanks and celebrate the fact that I listened to my heart and moved on in the best interest of those I love and myself.
This isn’t to say that things are perfect right now. Of course they’re not. But I’m living my life and doing things I love and that makes me happy despite the existing obstacles. A good friend restated a comment that I said to her weeks ago when she was going through a tough time…
We’re so imperfect, it’s amazing really. But that’s what makes for our unique story.
And you know what? I stand behind that fully. I make impulsive decisions and far too deliberated ones, and most of the time the one I pick has a consequence that wasn’t at all predicted. But you know what? These variables make things interesting, make life interesting and different and that is just beautiful if you ask me.
Have a beautiful week, everyone!
