When I miss the person I used to be, I go through our old text messages — just to remind myself that once upon a time I loved another with all my heart.
To remind myself that I’m still capable of being that person — even if just for myself.
But still — the messages are proof we were real and sometimes it truly blows my mind how much I was in love with you and how much you loved me, too.. I guess I had forgotten.
No matter where we were in the world, we truly loved each other. And that’s rare — every once in awhile you meet someone who shakes the foundation of your heart and soul — and even if it doesn’t work out, the experience is exquisite and enough to last a lifetime.
And this is why I keep them — small recollections of who I was, who I am now, and who I’m trying to be.
A reminder to always surround myself with people who love me, and are a positive influence in my life.
My current state of heart and mind really makes the past worth it.
People always think it’s the past that makes you who you presently are — but I disagree.
It’s the present that changes the past — how one views it, processes it, learns from it.
I’m so content with where I’m at now — emitting good vibrations out into the universe.
And I can only hope for another chance to dance with Love.
And that is powerful — having hope, again.
