a year's perspective

I went into this year giving up everything and have gained so much more.
I've gotten my time back. Instead of sleeping my life away I finally woke up. I finally realized that life isn't in the movies, it's real. Sparks that create lust aren't real, that kind of thinking is for movies and teenagers. Love is having a deep respect for someone who is compatible with you. Someone that compliments your life and doesn't try to change you. Someone that shares your core values. Someone that doesn't isolate you but brings you closer to your family. Someone you don't want to change, but love them for who they really are.

My head isn't in the clouds, for the first time in quite a while, I'm here and in the moment.
