sometimes people surprise you with the nicest greetings. it’s really that thought that counts:)
let go and stop entertaining that idea? I need to get out of my OWN way. sheesh.
Looking for some good books to read to get my mind off things. Time to hit up Barnes and Noble.
periodically disappointing myself. i guess it’s now a habit moreso than an occasional slip up. ugh
Ugh. Malignant. I don’t even know why I still have these feelings.
A jolt of nostalgia just hit me this morning. I can’t believe that was all a year ago – my time at university was so, so brief, yet made such a strong impact on my day-to-day. I never in a million years pictured myself here. My plans changed day by day, and now, here I am.
But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
…that I have done. I LOVE that line in The Killers song. It reminds me of where I’ve been, how I’ve gotten to where I am now, and what else I want to do. Everything adds up…it’s crazy once you really, really think about it.
So many people have passed through my life in the last couple of years, along the way making their mark. Even though I don’t hang out or talk to some of those same people as much anymore, I was able get something positive out of my knowing them. Certain friendships/relationships inevitably dwindle down from what they once were, but this isn’t always a bad thing. It’s taken me awhile, but I’ve finally learned not to feel so hurt, scorned, or rejected by those who left. In turn, I’ve come to appreciate those who remain all the more.
And I feel less and less nostalgic about that time in my life. I look back now with fondness instead of longing and those lingering regrets are gone now. The months that were hardest have come and gone, and I’m so thankful I didn’t crack under the pressure. I still have my shortcomings and I’m prone to making mistakes more often than I’d like, but I’m happy with how far I’ve come.
