I have been extremely absent and I’m sorry about that.
Dealing with difficult people in my life has taken its toll on my sanity some days. I am constantly learning more and more about my old family member and I am baffled at the amount of shit I didn’t know about that was going on behind my back. This helps to reaffirm that I 100% made the right choice to get out of dodge. What people do and what people say can be drastically different and when you find out the truth, it hurts you more. It hurts more because you believed the words.
I have started a new chapter of my life, and it has brought me peace for the first time in almost a decade. I no longer have to worry about what someone will say or think as their mind cooks up drama. I no longer have to worry about being accused of ridiculous acts someone believes in their head to be true. I can FINALLY do the things that make me happy in my life again. The simple act of having close friends is one of those things. I have reconnected with some amazing people and I am lucky to have them. They have opened my eyes to a lot of negatives about my life that I didn’t even know were there. I love my friends and cherish them.
I had to let go of everything in order to get everything I’ve ever wanted. I have hit that point and happiness strikes me every single day. Bo has adjusted to living in our new house extremely well. He looks forward to his long walks at night and has already memorized the houses where he always sees squirrels. I love that the Maumee River is only one block away from my house. It is so peaceful to sit and take in the beautiful view whenever I want.
Tonight Perrysburg is holding their ‘First Friday’ event. It is a children-focused street party/fair in downtown Perrysburg. They have everything from a dunk tank to inflatables to firetrucks to music for all who attend. Bo and I walk downtown almost every single night and tonight will be no different. Even though I am not going to take part in one single thing tonight, it is always a great place to people watch. Oh, the people watching…isn’t that one of the best things when you go to a crowded area? All in all, life is good and every day is a blessing that I get to shape into what I want in life. I’ll be around more often now that life has settled down and my freedom has returned.
I think I am always the last person to hear about these fun ‘national days.’ I always miss out on waffles, or cookies, or hang gliding, or skipping under a rainbow. But today, I’m not missing out on National Dog Day. I’m not so sure what I’m supposed to say, so all I have is […]
Have you ever heard the saying, ‘The only constant in life is change?’ It is always true for every person. But, when you are going through a massive life change this saying can have some profound meaning to you. It sure does to me right now. I am getting used to my new life. The […]
