I am not a very religious person. I do believe in God. I do not attend Church, I used to.
I have always believed that things happen for a reason. That everyone in your life is there for a reason. Weather you are meant to learn from them or vice-versa. Or just help each other along through life.
While on the computer today I stumbled across a family picture of an old boyfriend with his wife and child. For whatever reason I had a great epiphany regarding that relationship.
It lasted 2 years during high school. I realized today that had it not been for that relationship, and others that went along with it, my life would have gone down a very different path.
Before I met him I was following in the wrong foot steps. Meeting him caused me to change the way I looked at life and change what I had been doing with my life. It was a change I needed. And despite the heartbreak I felt when it ended I now know it was all meant to happen. I was put on a better path and its one of the many experiences that molded me into who I am today.
When life gives you an apple, what do you do with it?
I know the actual saying is "when life gives you lemons" but that didn't fit my situation, because it was not a lemon (sour). It was a changing point, apples can be several colors, and each color tastes different.
I showed my husband the picture of the guy and he began pointing out his flaws and said the guy was a dork. LOL, Men.
