Looking Forward

9 Oct

Do you want to live in what was

OR

Do you want to live in What Can Be?

I borrowed this inspirational saying from another blogger.  I have it written in big letters in my journal to remind myself.

We started this entire relationship off on the wrong foot.  We have both made mistakes that were detrimental and had the potential to ruin us completely.  Somehow we have hung onto each other through the storms.  We now have our eyes wide open and are moving toward the same goal.  I am looking forward to our future with more hope and promise than I have had for us since the day we met.

I want to live in what can be.

I want to focus on being healthy.

I want to continue creating an amazing bond with my husband.

I want to work towards recovery.

I want to fix my flaws and become a better version of me.

I want my husband to be the man I know that he is inside.

I want us to grow old together.

    “What was” will never be any different from “what can be” with such people.

    An amazing quote and it sounds like you are on your way to make sure this quote comes true.

    I’m right there with you. I want all the same things, but, unfortunately, what WAS dictates how and if I can attain those inspiring goals. Believe me, I have always been an “attitude is everything – pick a good one” kind of girl. I want to focus on how far we’ve come and all the good we can have in the future.
    Maybe I’m just not ready to let my guard down. I need to find a path that lets me keep my eyes on the prize while still covering my ass.

      I know what you mean. I want that, too… but it is hard not to be affected by the past – impossible maybe.

    This is very profound for me as well right now. You’ve no idea. I hope it’s ok to call you a “pet” name because I’m feeling caring and maternal to you right now given what you’ve been going through this past week. But Baby Girl, if I could give you a hug right now I would. You’re strong. You are amazing. The fact that despite these set backs you’ve still got your eye on thefuture and what you want in life is astounding. You inspire me. Never ever sell yourself short because you are beautiful and worthy and enough.
