Day 22 and my 201st post

25 Feb

Day 22 – How have you changed the past 2 years?

There’s really too much to list but I will start with the basics.

Two years ago, which would be Feb 2011, I was single, and I was finally enjoying it. I was over the ex, living my own life, spending time with friends and family, and my daughter lived with me (though she wasn’t there for long before she got her own place–she moved in with me for about 4 months to get stuff together).

A few months later, I met Mr. Rockstar, which changed my life for the better.

About four months after we began seeing each other we moved into together. Quick I know, but it didn’t feel like it was too quick–it felt right.

About 7 months after we began seeing each other we got engaged. And we planned our wedding for 8 1/2 months later. No, I wasn’t pregnant. My children are grown, I’m not able to have anymore children, and my grandson was born July 15, 2012–one of the other best days of my life.

I went from being single and loving it, to being with Mr. Rockstar (then engaged, then married), and I couldn’t be happier.

I’ve gained more patience. I laugh more. I smile more. I’m happier in general, and the happiest I’ve ever been in my life: I have a wonderful husband, I’m a proud parent of two college students, and I have a beautiful and sweet grandson.I have great friends and family and I appreciate them more now than I ever did–I think it’s because I am now such a happier person. Sometimes it’s hard to see the little things when you’re angry, depressed, stressed out, overwhelmed, and in an unhealthy relationship. Once I got out of that, I began to appreciate the little things in life again, as well as the big things. I finally began to see the forest and trees, and to stop and smell the roses.

Life is really what you make it, and I think we all have choices, but sometimes we don’t see the choices until we’re ready. If you’d have asked me 2 years ago if I’d be married and happy and in a healthy relationship and a grandmother I would have shook my head no adamantly. Now, I can’t imagine not being married to Mr. Rockstar.

And oh yeah!!! This is 201st post!!!!! YAY ME!!!!
