Here we go, sooo allow me to wear my heart on my sleeve for the moment...heartbreak. Most of us have experienced it, and for those who haven't; consider yourself lucky. Whether it's your first or fifth, true heartache is an awful pain, and a break up is never easy. The sting of the break is still fresh in my heart and I figure if I can offer any kind of relief in your hard times, one more positive thing can be said to come from my experience. While words are just words, and cannot totally comfort, they can inspire reflection. Here are a few simple (yet true) quotes:
  • Some of us think holding on makes us strong, sometimes it's letting go.
  • “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right...and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” -Marilyn Monroe
  • Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. (Closing Time-Semisonic)
When you are accustomed to the company of another person for a long time, and suddenly that bond is gone, the change is clear. Just make all this change worth it. Make a promise to yourself to become what you have always envisioned. Make this change a positive one. Do things you love, surround yourself with good people and NOTHING can stop you.
I'm no expert, but here is what I think about the heartbreak.
Enjoy the memories, learn from it, and never ever regret the time spent.
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. -Alfred Lord Tennyson

It's okay to turn the page,

Baby Steps.

It's been far too long, but here I am now, sharing the promise I have made to myself :

I promise to make good choices. Not that I don't always attempt to do so, but to take constant steps to better myself. I really want to look out for my best interest and be sure that I am always putting my best foot forward. I want to make choices that help me embody all of the traits I admire in the wonderful people who surround me.
My mom told me five words that I have chosen to live by,
We can't always control every aspect of our lives or the repercussions of the choices we do make. All we can do is ask ourselves what the next right thing to do is, and take baby steps to our future.

Examples of the NEXT RIGHT THING to do:
Be patient.
Keep calm.
Go to class.
Go to the gym.
Save a few bucks.
Do something kind.

Free yourself,
(Thank you for reminding me that  people care what I have to say, I WILL BLOG. You know who you are.)
