Ten Things

This is originally from December 18th, 2009. I had ended a long, long relationship a month before our wedding, and was in the process of applying for and interviewing for the job I currently have, and was living in Omaha. It's amazing how much has changed, and yet, how much hasn't.

Doing this exercise made me think. I love it when that happens...

Ten things I wish I could say to 10 different people:
1. I forgive you every day - I still do, and you know this. 

2. Thank you for sharing the time we did. This still stands, to some degree - I learned a lot, how's that for positive? 

3. You reminded me who I am, what I want/need… I’ve probably never said that to you, and I probably never will, but thank you.  I did tell you.... and then walked away, even when you asked me not to. 

4. I miss you every single day. I think about you every single day. I still miss you, everyday, Gram. Everyday. 

5. You are the best friend I could ever ask for, and more. Neither time nor distance will ever be too much for us and I’m grateful every single day to call you my best friend. My BFF will always be my BFF, and I'm blessed to have so many other amazing women in my life, as well. Blessed beyond belief. 

6. I always wonder “what if”, maybe it’s best that way. I still wonder, all the time. Distance is a bitch. 

7. I hope you find your true happiness, you have to follow your heart though, it’s time to learn how to. I'm so very happy to see that this HAS changed, that you are following your heart and finding happiness in your surroundings! 

8. You are an amazing woman, strong, beautiful and inspirational. This is so many women in my life! 

9. I honestly wonder if you even KNOW that something isn’t right. Everyone else seems to. I'm glad you realized it wasn't right...and found happiness!

10. I’m glad we found each other again. How ironic this would be. I moved 20 mins away and had a fun-filled 3 years...and now they are in FLA. Still as close as ever!!! 

And a few extra new ones: 

You give me a run for my money, pretty much every day. One day, you'll learn to let your guard down, but it will be far, far too late. 

Thank you for pushing me past limits and teaching me that limits only exist to be pushed past, sometimes. 

I am forever grateful for your friendship. There are no words to express this!

One Confession:
1. I stayed for the wrong reasons All, all the wrong ones. Without a doubt, not a tiny single doubt about this! 

Two regrets: These stay the same. But if I hadn't admitted it sooner, I wouldn't have had someone to run from. Funny how life works. 
1. Not admitting it sooner
2. Running ...
