How amazing can you feel when you see people you haven't seen in a looooong time? How amazing is it to hear things like "You have changed soooo much."
I was in a room full of people I respect and love and all these women have known me for the past 13 years but most of them I haven't seen in a year or more. I walked into the room and I felt love. I felt so happy and safe and God, did it feel good? :) All those hugs, warm smiles, nice words....and I knew non of them were fake. I knew I could trust every word they said and OMG, they all said I have changed so much and that quite "yes" person is no longer there and she was replaced with a strong woman that knows her worth. LOL! And hearing how beautiful I look with my new blond hair do and how I'm glowing, I believed it for the first time. I guess it is true when people say that beauty comes from with in. My physical looks haven't really changed (except for my hair) but I have been happier and I guess it shows on the outside. And I stood in a room full of women that came to my life years ago and I felt like they were listening to every word I said like I am the most interesting person in the world. How come I have never noticed that before???? But I am grateful I have finally noticed it.
I am grateful I have so many great people in my life.
I am grateful for having the best kids in the world.
I am grateful I was able to make changes for the better.
I am grateful I feel this way. :)
