I like Taylor Swift. She makes me happy and also sits with me on some sadness I have experienced in past relationships. She reminds of my niece and I have fun singing to her in the car. Okay I love her.
I like the movie Enchanted. The song at the end that Carrie Underwood sings about “ever ever afterrrr?” Love. Yea I love this movie.
I sometimes YouTube Jim and Pam’s wedding just for a smile.
I check in with an ex a few times a year just to remind myself that some connections can still warm my heart-even if it didn’t work out.
I get pedicures with another who is now a great friend and still makes me laugh harder than most people I know. (Yup, pedis)
I let go.
Looking forward, and
That as much as life has given me reasons to tuck it away (because let’s face it sometimes love just SUCKS right?) my heart will always remain on my sleeve, and that in keeping it there, it is a courageous way of loving myself, too.
