Life is good
I was catching up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while last night. Asking about each other’s kids and whatnot.
I told her both of my kids are adjusting well in their new schools. Both have extracurricular activities, marching band, honor band, clubs. My daughter went to her first formal dance. She was planning on going alone, feeling no need for a date. She’s confident enough to just go alone. She ended up with a group of girls from band and had a blast.
Both kids are in advanced classes and both got straight As on their semester report cards.
They’re both doing so great.
She smiled and said “life is good.”
It hit me that I’ve been so wrapped up in the misery of my broken heart that I’ve forgotten to really appreciate the good things. Sure I had fun at the workshop weekend, sure I enjoy my friends. But there’s been a cloud over everything since the crash.
I feel like the cloud is finally lifting. I feel like my life isn’t all about my relationship anymore. I still miss him (the him he used to be) but it’s background noise now.
It’s such a relief.
