Moving On

I think that firework really did help me.

I've reached acceptance finally, and on my own terms.

I'm amazed I didn't lose my sanity. The fact that it took me 19 months to reach this level probably safeguarded my mind.

Life as I knew it is over. Period.

I've woken up and smelled the coffee, or the roses, or whatever the expression is.

And I want to live again.

Live.

Love.

Live.

  2. I've recently gotten to this point as well, Boo - I'm happy for us! Hope the feeling lasts (I hate the whole three steps forward, two steps back routine)! XOXO Love you!

  3. Thanks S xxxx

    Andrea, I too am hoping that it is a "permanent state" rather than a fleeting feeling ... I so wish it is something more solid after all this time, for both of us xx

  4. I like the three simple words "Live, Love, Live." I find that sometimes the simpler, the more profound and I'll be reflecting on them and perhaps adopting them for my own mantra!

  6. Good for you.

    I prefer to smell the coffee, as roses just make me sneeze.

    As you know I am trying to do the same. I know that it will still be a challenge, yet I think we do need to make these proclamations.

    Love ya!

  7. Yes, I think that simply being here today is good enough for now. When I have a bad day, I know that I will backtrack to "here" and that in itself is not a bad place to be in :-)

    Love you guys xx

  9. First, TAG, you're it!!! Go to my blog for the details. Second, acceptance is hard to get to, but once you do it's like a weight is lifted. Loving and Living, that's all I want to do!! Love you!!! :)
