25th Anniversary

image

It doesn’t surprise me that I would think of my wedding day even though I am not in that relationship anymore. It was a two decade relationship and will be a lasting impression on my soul and spirit.

It seems so long ago.  Now far past that time, I am living a remarkable life of realism, tolerance, laughter, spontaneity, and love in other beautiful ways. The most amazing experience for me is how I have embraced my personal life. It is only mine and this is what makes it brilliant.

It is through my newest experiences that I am gaining back much of the dignity I lost by choices made by others without my consent or knowledge at times. These were very harsh events that forever impacted my very being.

Beautifully enough, I am and have been given great insights in the last couple of years especially to what was once a stale existence. This life may not always be ours, but in the long run when all the chips seem down, there is always a way to loving your life. It starts with you liking yourself just a little more each day. Meaning- you start doing for yourself when much was taken away.  No one said this life would be easy.

      Thank you Teresa. So appreciate these kind words . Writing is my passion, but even more my privacy has become so paramount as I journey along another path. I have learned so much in the last few years.

      Thank you Michele. It is hard to believe so much that can be thrown at us. I know you and your family have been through quite a bit. It is good to see how far your grandson has come. I appreciate your words and continue to have you in my thoughts and prayers.

      Hey thank you. Yes. Reflecting is good for the soul at the right time. So many times I am premature in my thinking. I am finally getting some of that figured out. Hugs coming back toward you.

      I really appreciate you. We are broken so we can become new. We all have stories worth being told. I am a storyteller and want my truths to bring life to others who are hurting. Thank you friend…

      Hi Patricia- as a fan of your writing as well as another writer ,Darlene, who also commented – I am extremely grateful for what your add to my life story. It is the fact people have changed through this with me. It has made a difference. I have had some close friends walk side by side and they have been instrumental to this path I am on now. They know who they are. I am upholding my privacy as much as I can at this point, but I hope I can find words to share more of my life. I want to be extra careful from now on. Blessings- Alesia

    Hello Alesia, There are some good reminders for us all in there. And Boots is right -there is one strong woman in there.
    I love the photo. Do the dog and rabbit co – habitat? He looks like he would be glad to get hold of the rabbit.
    Stay well. Louise

      The rabbits got out once and Stan just looked at them hopping around. What a good dog he is. And thank you about my post . Learning everyday is so important.
