Words in the Wind

Today, while in the ladies room, I heard two co-workers talking. One was crying. “I told her I got back together with him because I married him,” she sobbed. “I thought maybe he’d changed.” Well, you can guess the rest of the story.

I’ve spent some time, not a lot, but some, imagining what my life would be like now if I’d made different decisions.

Break Gently

“funny how our hearts were designed to love so fiercely. but break ever so gently.” ― Sanober Khan Break gently, heart of mine. “I will not love again until I am certain I won’t make the same mistakes.” But I can never be certain of that, for I am always the same person. And I will love again. I will. Photo Credit: © Prakapenka … Read More Break Gently
