I happened to come across a photograph of myself that was taken eleven years ago. Yeah I know the prompt is about ten but I’m not going to lie for the sake of my blog 🙂
It was taken when I was still married and in the house that we owned. I look younger but not really that much different (thanks to my parents for good genes!). But so much has happened to me in those eleven years. At that moment in time, my husband (great guy no hate there) was in my life, we were in love, I had finished grad school, my beloved dog was alive, no cancer in my family. A moment in time.
Since that time there have been breakups, painful ones, financial issues, my dog passed, family cancer (2), surgeries, job loss, etc.
But there has also been a lot of good too. New relationships (and breakups lol). New friendships that are rock solid and full of love. A job I love. Family members that are still alive and fighting. I’m in the best shape of my life. And I still look pretty good 🙂
All moments in time in my life. I’m lucky that I am alive to experience these moments but most of all I am lucky to have the chance every day for a new beginning.
