Last year, on November 16, 2013, I was supposed to close on forever. Happily ever after. Starting a new life.
Simply put, that didn’t happen. Things go awry, people change, the worst happens, and your plans come crashing down on your ears.
That doesn’t mean I no longer believe in forever. On the contrary, I’m a bigger believer of it now. That the strength it took to not just choose the path that was set, and believe that things will be better and there will be a different future for me, is still there, urging me on. Move forward. Be better.
These thoughts pervade my mind as I prepare to participate in a friendâ€™s step toward forever as a bridesmaid.
What went wrong? I would like to leave that private. While my life is an open book, this is not just my life thatâ€™s being opened, so letâ€™s not invite the internet to too much of it.
My life now is far from perfect. Iâ€™m starting over, at 27 I really donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m doing. 28 in a month. I still donâ€™t have the answers to the future, but for now, Iâ€™m stopping living in the past.
Do you know what you want for your future?
