Flashes of a Former Life

Although I broke up with with my long-time girlfriend nearly 6 months ago, there are times (like the last few days) when I end up thinking of the happy moments we had. I know I shouldn't indulge but I can't help myself sometimes. It's difficult to put five and half years behind you just like that.

On some (very infrequent) days I feel let down that I spent my college years giving my best to something that ended up in failure. And I don't know who to be pissed off at. But on most other days I am just grateful for what I've got. Grateful for what we shared together and thankful for all the experiences I've had in my life.

I've moved on from that dreadful November of 2005. I'm stronger and I am happier for it.

I've learned to appreciate life for what it is. Even when you do your best, you fail sometimes. But it's not about results, it's about trying. It's about giving your heart and soul to something that has no guarantees, losing, getting hurt, picking up the pieces and moving on.

Life's good :)

Experiences that touch us like that truly are bittersweet, aren't they?

In the end there is just a lot of gratitude for those moments.

Just keep on keeping on! :-)

And I was in a long term relationship too.. things can only get better.. But never lose those memories. They will keep you warm on a cold night.. We will always have the memories.
