Today, normal and agenda set! A friend and I then decided to take a drive up to Mirror Lake! When life’s stresses call, friends calm the situation while adding fun, scenery and sincere listening to the pot! Producing a succulent, tasty, flavor filled meal for the soul and heart! I haven’t seen him or spent time together for a while, due to our selfish ways & aggressive parting, so this meant a lot. As we drove up the cold, isolated road toward Mirror Lake, we stopped along the way to capture pictures of aspens, pines and snowy mountains! A beautiful site to see! We talked about life! How we’ve both matured in ways beyond us! The turmoil, heartache of failed relationships and failed parenting! How they affect our everyday lives and the acceptance we’ve been looking for! Though we’ve found exceptance and love within ourselves and we keep growing every day. Its always good to look back, reminisce, laugh, smile, joke, cry, state the what if’s, accept the negative, be realistic and move on.
You see, we both come from abusive backgrounds. Which kept us tied to isolation, alienation from social events and people for many years! Not because we choose to but because what others viewed as normal, feels out of place, weird to us! When a child is traumatized mentally, physically, etc approaching a situation whatever that may be (social, intimate, etc) is never normal! It’s always awkward!
After chit chatting, laughing, taking in beautiful scenery, my heart revealed how blessed I am, we are! Blessed to have so many amazing inspiring, beautiful, fun loving people in my life! A true friend/love no matter the pain, hurt, turmoil which was caused always finds a road back to each other. Our beautiful hearts unstained and love for each other unconditional. Cherish, embrace and remember the good times and learn from the bad! Love your friends, Love yourself!
