Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands.
They just don’t.
This morning my daughter, who is nearly four, saw the stretch marks on my hips and stomach. She ran her hands over them and asked what they were.
“I got them when I grew up,” I said, “and a few more when I had you.” I grinned down at her. “They’re my stripes. You’ll get stripes too when you grow up.”
She was overjoyed. “Really?”
I think she’s in her room now, pretending to be a tiger.
This is what we need to teach.
It’s scary when you find someone new. When you start feeling again. You don’t know whether if it’ll keep being or just end abruptly. That’s life I guess. Always wondering to yourself if what you’re doing is right, or if what you’re doing is completely wrong. May be I’m crazy, which in all honesty I probably am. We go with it though. At least that’s what people tell me. Sometimes we have to be a little crazy to get things done. To get what we want, and to get to where we want to be. Sometimes we have to believe the unbelievable. If we don’t, we may never fly, because we were so afraid to jump in the first place.
Things have been so up and down this month, but mostly down though. This is why it’s been so hard to update here, or even stick to all the plans I had. I’ve just been so out of it. I thought I had life in the bag, and I had everything perfectly thought out and planned. Boy was I wrong. I was utterly wrong. I’m trying really hard to go back through the motions again. I haven’t gained weight which is surprising to me, but also haven’t lost any of it either. I don’t think that’s not what I’m upset about though, more that I haven’t really been trying. This month has just been full of too much emotion, and just too much bringing myself down.
The plus side to the month though is I met a guy. I wish I could tell him what I’m about to say, but I think if I did I will probably scare him off. Who knows though right? He’s honestly like a breath of fresh air for me. He’s different in so many ways compared to the guys I’ve dated. Especially to my last ex. His emotional stability is a lot better. Of course he has his bad days, but who doesn’t? He knows how to deal with himself, and his emotions. In turn, helps him deal with me. He’s straight-up. He’s confident, but it’s not in an arrogant sort of way. He knows what he wants out of his life, but he goes with the things that are thrown at him, and works from there. He’s sweet, kind, but by the sounds of it he’s only that way to me. I know, deep down, this guy will always be there for me…just to talk to if needed.
I like him. I’m crazy about him. I’m afraid I may have ruined it, or I’m going to in someway though. He doesn’t need someone bringing him down, he has enough of those type of people in his life. I would of course would never do that on purpose. I’m not going to give up on him of course, and I hope he doesn’t give up on me that easily. I like him, and by the sounds of it he likes me too. Dear God don’t let me ruin this lol. I’m just rambling now by the way. I have to stop over-thinking everything that happens between us, and just go with it. Which he actually said himself. Time to stop listening to the constant clatter in my head, and just let things be. If we’re meant to happen, we will, and if not well…that’s the way life goes.
