REMEMBER TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE

REMEMBER TO ENJOY YOUR LIFE

Going through a breakup of any kind can be devasting, but don’t forget to enjoy your life along the way. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone. Grieving is a natural process of a breakup, but don’t let it consume you. The dissolution of a marriage or relationship can seem like the end of the world but believe me, you will survive. Do you, remember your high school sweetheart and how much you thought you loved and couldn’t live without him? Where is he now? Do you even remember him? What about the guy you fell in love with in your early twenties. You felt like you couldn’t breathe without him. Years later after the breakup, you are still breathing, aren’t you? Grieving takes time. Remember the old saying, “don’t cry over spilled milk”. Don’t spend your time worrying about things that have happened and cannot be changed. Hold your head up and look toward the future. If you keep looking back, you may run into something. Spend time with your friends and family. Don’t forget to laugh. Remember the old saying, laughter is the best medicine”. So, what are you waiting for laugh! Do some of the things you never had time to do in the past. Pull out your old bucket list and dust it off. I always wanted to skydive, but at sixty I’ve decided to forgo this. I took a French class and started writing a book. I haven’t finished the book yet. It’s still a work in progress. Remember above all else, love yourself. Know that you are worthy of having a healthy, happy relationship. Don’t look to anyone to make you happy. That is your job. Take a trip somewhere you have never been. Make a list of the things that make you happy and do them. There is no do-over in life. Have no regrets. Don’t look back and say, I should’ve, would’ve, could’ve. Do it now! Don’t be afraid to love again. Love like there’s no tomorrow because there may not be.
