December 24 Prompt – Everything’s OK.
What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?
i don't think there was one moment specifically but a bunch of little moments combined. watching my son grow and knowing that no matter what i look/smell/act like - he loves me unconditionally was one. just having him alone makes me know everything will be okay. having a husband to support every decision that i make is another. he's a good man and i know he'll always take care of me and kullen even if he works himself to death [luckily though, he doesn't have too just yet]. realizing who my friends are was another. a lot of these people have been around for a while but i was too self absorbed to realize they were actually good people! i was easily influenced by others and often disregarded friendships just because i could. luckily, i have been forgiven and friendships have blossomed and i know that we'll always be there for one another. others downfalls [sadly] have been another moment for me. i've changed in my old age [haha] and i don't always have to learn 'the hard way'! i can and have learned from other peoples mistakes. and if i didn't learn much, i learned that no matter how many days of work i miss because of a sick kid or inclement weather, chances are i won't lose my job. that alone is comforting, i guess.
bottom line is that i have a great life and everything WILL be okay. i have a great support system and because of them, i'll make it through the storms of life!
now - if i could just keep this positive attitude next year, it would save me a ton of stress! ;]
