thursday’s thought

I Love Me More Quote from Sex and the City

When relationships end it’s easy to allow the past to become your anchor and trap you in a spiral of shoulda, coulda, woulda. I never thought I’d find myself in the single gal’s heels again, but now that I’m here I’ve accepted that some days are going to be shitty, there will be moments best left unspoken (think:ย Miranda’s chocolate-cake-eating days) and songs I should just stop listening to (like Adele’s Someone Like You). Life gives you just as many chances to get things right as it does for you to screw it up so I know things will eventually fall into place for me. Until then I’m going live for the moment, love myself the most, and allow the love of my family and friends to heal my broken heart.

  • Sonja, I’m feelin’ you, Girl. It seemed I had to endure waay too many a breakup – at least that’s what it felt like at the time – like my heart couldn’t handle another one. I was wrong. I did handle all of them and survived! Now I look back with gratitude and love at the experiences, the self-learning, and personal evolving that I went through. But it was hell while enduring it. I won’t even sugar-coat it because I know. (Some of my musings are on my blog, so I’ll spare you here!!) So I’m crying with you, laughing with you, whatever you feel you need right now. Fortunately, you seem to be surrounded by people who support and love you. That’s wonderful! Sending you hugs and reassurance. xoxo

      Sarita, I’ve never met you, yet I feel like I’ve known you for years as your words of strength, sympathy and love mean a great deal to me. Thank you for reminding me that the light at the end of the tunnel is not the ‘no exit’ sign, but more of a ‘welcome’ greeting. Thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚ xoxox

      • Sonja, I feel the same way. One day we will hug each other and you’ll tell me: I did it! I’m on the other side. Love & hugs. xoxo

    Change is inevitable. It’s propelling you forward and pushing you towards a better future. Even if you don’t see it right now. Even if you don’t know the reason. Even if you don’t understand. Always remember – the Universe knows what it’s doing.
    Just like extras are hired in movies to make the scenes look more natural, Life hires setbacks to make your life fuller. Plenty of them. YOU are the lead actor. So keep playing your role and don’t let those setbacks snatch your lines or drown out your part on this big screen. Aaaaand…. “Action!”
