Some days you will feel lost, afraid, or even alone. Some days all you will want to do is turn back to the life you held leading up to this, but I promise it is all so worth it, even before you reach wherever your life is taking you.
My 35th birthday found me very raw from the breakup of a long-term relationship and living at home with a mother who loves to ask, “When am I going to be a grandmother?”
It has nothing to do with the people you’ve lost, it’s all about you.
Life will never leave you lonely. As you age, the universe will keep churning out new people for you to meet. If your circle of friends begin to diminish, so be it. If your boyfriend leaves you, let him. I want you to know that you should never have to force people to put you first. Thus if they only see you as an option, leave them.
I’ve learned to admit my mistakes.
Life will give you many things, there will be sad times when life will take things from you as well. This is all part of living.
They say that a Mother’s love is purest kind of love; yet, I realized that when I look at you, my mother, I am looking at the purest love I will ever know.
For definitions sake, for one to be loyal they must demonstrate faithfulness to commitments, obligations, and people. I’d basically call myself a walking synonym for loyalty.
This year was fucking tough. I can’t tell you that it’s going to be “better” next year. But God damn, I’m game to find out.
When you’re hugging a loved one, give yourself a millisecond or two to appreciate that they are in your arms, right now, smiling and breathing and warm.
