‘life isn’t about who you once were, it’s about who you are now & who you have the potential to be’
super, duper similar to the last quote i posted but it’s something that i’m still stuck on after all of the sweet comments & messages i’ve received.
i teared up more than once reading through all of the kind, supportive words & i realized that the community i’ve found on afternoons with harley is quickly becoming the best part of writing.
especially when some of you have faced – or are facing – some incredibly challenging moments in your own life & are still able to offer your support.
i mean it’s just astounding how some people are able to walk around, spreading love after their own loss & heartbreak.
you’re showing me that no matter what broken state we may find ourselves in – there’s always the potential to heal & be happy & thrive again.
the possibility is there.
and i want to go for it.
but while the support of the ‘awh’ community, my family & friends is making a huge difference each & every day – at the end of the day – i know it’s really up to me to reach that potential.
no one can do that for me.
there’s no book that’s been written.
no podcast that’s been recorded.
no new partner that i could meet.
no sweet comment that’s strong enough (even if it’s from my mama) that can get me to where i want to be or where i need to be.
looking back on it, yea, my ‘dream life’ did blow up in my face, but the dream is still there even if the life is very different.
and i’m not going to stop chasing that dream of having the warm, cozy home with my loving partner, kiddos & rescue dogs running around.
that dream will be there, no matter what my current reality looks like.
and i’ll keep working towards it, while remembering that there’s always the potential to heal.
but until i get there – i just want to say even the smallest comments, a ‘hey how are you doing’ really mean a lot to me.
so thank you & please stay connected (or join our community!) on facebook, twitter & instagram!
