So lately I have been thinking, things are really great! I mean I have just graduated college, I couldn’t ask for a better and more fitting job and my boyfriend and I are planning our move to Australia! I think the best thing I can do now is reflect back on my life and how I got to this great place. This leads me to my point, I spent the day writing little tidbits of my life; short clips I can remember here and there and I must say I recommend this for everyone. I shed many unexpected tears and truthfully pulled out some possibly blocked memories that needed to come out. Not to mention when I am in these types of emotion filled moods, the best writing comes out, so that was just a plus! I’ll share some lines so you have a better understanding… It starts when I was 7 years old and all I know is happiness..
We live in a small gray house; It is perfect
My dad is so funny; My mom is so serious
My brother hurts me; I think he really likes me though
Mommy is my best friend; She loves spending time with me
Everyone is sad and I don’t understand; Divorce, what’s that?
Mom cries on Christmas; I hold her hand and feel sad
My brother blames mom; My mom blames drugs, whatever those are
I trust mommy though, she never lies; My brother will come around
Daddy doesn’t talk about it much; He just tells jokes…
Who’s the new guy with mom?; Why’s my brother moving out?
Brother’s back but what’s that smell?; Mom calls the cops, I don’t want him to get in trouble
Mom and brother are fighting a lot; Everything will be alright though
Dad’s picking me up in an hour!; I learn about broken promises, mom comforts me
Dating- mom’s new hobby; What is a relationship supposed to look like?
Letters from dad say I’m sorry; Inmate #193920
Mom says drugs got him in there; Dad lies
Needless to say things were about to get much worse and I was not ready for it. However; the ending of my little reflection leads me to my life right now where I am unbelievable happy. Sometimes I think, “whats the catch?” My life is going too good to be true and I just wait around for something bad to happen. But after writing this reflection I believe I’ve gone through enough hard times in my life and I deserve this happy place I am in. Not only do I recommend everyone do this to recall memories you didn’t know were still there, but also do this to see how far you’ve come in life and what you went through to get there, then share I’d love to hear it!
It was an uplifting experience for me, to say the least!
