Hopes & Dreams

It's really amazing sometimes how the path we walk takes us places we never would have dreamed. And perhaps it's part of the wonderful moments in life, that not everything can be predicted. When my marriage ended, my counsellor told me that I was mourning the loss of the future I had planned, and in a lot of ways she was right. Uncertainty is scary. But it can also bring us to exciting places, too.

Some doors open solely because others have closed. There are so many ways I could have not met Henry, or that our relationship would have ended because of circumstances beyond our control. Instead, we would up making it work with a leap of faith, and we've been together for 2 1/2 years now. Sometimes I look back and think about all the things I learned- I am definitely not the same person I was even a year or two or five years ago. Like in Alice in Wonderland, I can't go back to yesterday because I'm not the same person I was then. And while I do miss some of those characteristics I used to have, I've also learned some things about myself and about relationships.

I could never have imagined I'd be here on this precipice, looking over the edge and still preparing to step off. I thought my life was all planned out, and now I know that it's not. But it's going to be what I choose to make of it, and not following a plan anymore. And I feel so lucky that I've found someone to walk this road with me.

On Christmas Eve, I asked Henry to marry me, and he said yes.
