Everyone has a story. Every single person. Good, bad, fun, etc.
For each person, certain stories will stand out more- no matter what. You will carry on, live everyday to the fullest, think you’re good, then boom. Your body, your mind will encounter a moment of some kind of emotion(s) because of “that” memory.
Today marks 5 years and one day. 5 years ago, with one day. I’ve come to terms I will never not remember that time. And that’s okay with me.. and I’ll tell you why.
Now, I won’t go into detail about what exactly took place, because frankly, that’s not my focus right now.
But what I will tell you is, I truly thought my world ended. I was beyond devastated, sad, angry, lost and every negative emotion you can think of. I remember feeling defeated. And although it was the most dangerous day/weeks/months of my life, I wouldn’t change it for the damn world.
Through all that mess, I can honestly say, I’ve learned so much about others and most importantly, me. What I should focus on, rather focusing on irrelevant things/people. To listen and to not always talk. Don’t intentionally harm others, emotionally and/or physically. Everything is temporary. Be kind. Respectful. Strong. So on, and so on.
I’m so thankful for that trial in my life. Without that nonsense, I truly believe I wouldn’t be as passionate as I am, so driven, and so strong willed. Which in turn, has resulted with strong minded children, respectful, very committed and ready to change the world. And for this, I’m so damn thankful.
So, just know, I’m not mourning right now. Nor am I deeply saddened because of the memories, I’m simply celebrating my life.
And you should be doing the same thing to.
