10 Years Ago Today

10 Years Ago Today

Today would have been my ten year wedding anniversary.  Ten years ago today, I was putting on a wedding dress and preparing to say my vows in Maui.  Ironically, the wedding planner who handled our wedding was called, “A Marriage Made in Heaven”.

I try very hard to find the “positives” in all situations.

As 2011 comes to an end, I am reflecting on all of the good things that came from the past ten years:

  • First and foremost: I am thankful for two amazing little girls who call me, “Mom”.
  • Besides that, I’ve learned a lot:

I learned to be strong.
I’ve learned what friendship means.
I’ve learned what love is.
I’ve learned that I can stand on my own two feet.
I’ve learned my tolerance levels for many things.
I’ve learned that money really does not buy happiness.
I learned that I deserve someone who treats me with love and respect.  I know that anything less is not worth my time.
I’ve learned that I love myself– imperfections and all.  I’ve learned to accept that I’m not perfect nor do I want to be.
I’ve developed a relationship with God and for that, I am thankful.
I’ve learned to have faith— even when its difficult to understand “why” in the moment….it all makes sense when the smoke clears.

Thank you so much for the comments, messages and kind words.  Thank you for reading my blog.  I am grateful.

Happy New Year!
