Found this today on Aimee‘s Pinterest. Had to “like” it…had to like it a lot. Then I found myself getting all melancholy and reflective…you know, thinking about things that have fallen apart lately and reminding myself it is okay. Better things, you know.
But I wasn’t done being inwardly reflective. No. Ten years ago, this very evening I had no clue as to how my life was going to change…how my family’s lives would be changing. I had plans. I had some pretty big plans…good plans for good things. They were being planned and it seemed that at the ages and stages our children were at the timing was right. Good things were going to happen, were coming our way in 2002 and beyond. Little did we know ten years ago tonight how different it would all end up…not all the good things, but better things.
I needed to be reminded of this today.
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, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
