Nine years ago, I believed I met the love of my life. My best friend in many ways, which I did not realize until years later. When I was faced with adversities, not a muscle in him flinched. He woke up right along with me every morning, drove me to work, and watched me study as I watched him cook for me countless nights.
He was a part of my dreams and pushed me towards them when I gave up on myself. When I cried, he encouraged me, left notes on my desk, and made me listen to Napoleon Hill.
A year and half ago, we parted.
Three months later, with every intention to focus, I met someone new. Someone new that I watched from afar for the last ten years. In the end, I learned a great deal about myself. I learned to find inspiration in myself.
Fast forward to a year, on New Year’s Eve 2016, my best friend told me to start the year with a bang. Well, little did she know it was the beginning of an eventful year.
I recently came across this quote.
“I may have not gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I need to be.”
That’s where I am at now….changing plans, loading luggage into a compact car, watching my family move across the Atlantic, watching my best friend start a career miles away, choosing to enjoy weekday dates in the rain…
Everyday I choose to wake up and be happy. That has been the best part of the last two months.
