Sometimes in life, we get to a point where we feel we have arrived. Yes, I've been there. At 17, I thought I had gotten to my final bus stop relationship wise. The person I was seeing had me fantasising all the time. My friends knew him even though they had not met him but many things happened along the way... We broke up. I cried my eyes out, I thought I was going to die.. He cheated on me so I went on a heart breaking spree and the peace or fulfilment I was longing for never came, instead the gap was getting wider.
We tried to get back together, no he tried to convince me two years after, I wanted to consider but I felt sleeping dogs should lie as different colours of waters had passed under the bridge.
It's been 8 years and all the love, hurt, pain I felt then doesn't matter again.
Once upon a time, I was starry eyed, I had no cares in the world. I never thought of where my next meal or allowance will come from because I knew it must come. I was so young juvenile, stubborn and all of that. Now, I'm semi-independent, I've been thrust out into the real world where dogs eat dogs, where nothing is constant other than change. I look in the mirror and I no longer see that baby face (well, my face hasn't really changed though) and the realisation that I'm a grown woman has hit me and I'm struggling to keep up with the responsibilities that come with grown ups.
Whatever it is you're going through today, in some years time, it wouldn't really matter again so make the best of today and live everyday like it's your last.
Good morning lovelies and have a great day!
