Nothing lasts forever.

Years ago, I remember having everything at my fingertips. All was right with the world. I was so smitten, I was literally hugging trees. I thought all sorts of things would last forever.

Today, I stress out thinking about how short life is. After my Mom passed, life seemed even more precious. But this delicate life became so hectic. I was suffocating. Yet it was strangely exhilarating. My head spun. I couldn't see straight.

I began to reevaluate life. In it's most basic state, I saw it drifting in a different direction. But I know some see it much more dramatic and unraveling. Yet the road on which we set, I don't think I can come back.

No, I don't want to be alone. But the house stopped feeling like a home. And I am reminded of past broken promises and don't know if I can accept more of the same. I have to be willing to let go of this life we planned.

I have this beautiful gift. And she is as wonderful as I could have ever dreamed. But beyond her, being apart is best. I know it.

At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart but not in your life.

This isn't how I thought it would end.

Nothing lasts forever.


  1. I have come to admire your strength. First through your mother's passing and now this. I've wondered what you've been struggling with and am happy that you are now on a path back to happiness. Much love.

  2. Isn't it amazing how much life can change? And sometimes those changes can be very, very difficult. I'm sorry to hear you are going through this but I do hope it leads you to a happier place. Sending big hugs.

  3. I, too, admire you because I know it's really tough right now. But I also know you are finding your stride and searching for your own happiness. Much love you on your journey.

  4. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your kind words of support. It has been a much more difficult journey than I ever had expected. I often feel I have failed in shielding my daughter from all this pain, but I continue to protect as best I can from all of this heartache. That's all I can do. But with the love of my family behind me and the support of friends like you, I know I will get through this.
