There have been some pretty big life changes going on here. Something that once was beautiful and full of promise became tainted and ugly and has come to an end.
I couldn't be happier.
There is a new life in front of me. A new beginning. Full of promise and success. Of failure and lessons learned.
For the first time in almost 10 years I am free to be myself. To do the things that I want to do. Be the person I know I am and can be. To meet new people and friends and to get out in the world as the 'new' me.
I like the new me. She is fun and outgoing. She is no longer angry and hurt and bitter. She is a person full of emotion and joy that she isn't afraid to show. I feel amazing.
This life is too short to sit and dwell on things that I cannot change. Things that could have been. There are plenty of things that will be and still are.
I am lucky to have wonderful friends that were (and are)there for me when I needed them most. I appreciate them more than they know.
On to the next new chapter of my life!
