As I went through my blog stats today.. looking at my readers pages and where my blog is shared I came across this: http://www.justmilitaryloans.com/round-ups/top-5-inspiring-military-spouse-blogs/
My blog is on there! It really warmed my heart and it definitely made me smile. To know that people find my words inspiring just makes me so happy. When I started this blog I didn't know it's potential. That I actually had the power to help other people and let those around me into my own life. It's really a powerful thing.
I try to be honest, to put my feelings into perspective. Cry, laugh, get angry.. it all comes out in my blog. This is to tell our story, to talk to him, and learning to live again. People don't always agree with me and that's fine. I don't expect people to. At the same time, this is my space. For me to say whatever I please.
It's come a long way in the last 361 days. I come here when I need to get something out and before I know it I have an entire post full of my thoughts.
It'll be a year in a few hours. I like to think he's proud of me. Proud of me for standing tall and pushing forward in life without him by my side. I mean.. he's still here. Not in the preferred form, but he would never ever leave me to fend for myself.
I know everyone says, "everything happens for a reason." Maybe it is true. Maybe I was destined for something in this lifetime and this is how it's being uncovered. Granted I would prefer my old life, but I think I'm doing rather well considering the circumstances.
Finding that article today was just what I needed. A little boost in my life to feel like I am actually making a difference. After all.. making a difference has always been a goal in my life. I am an education major you know.
I'm going to attempt sleep and hopefully I'll have some sweet dreams. Stay with me tomorrow babe. Love you always.
