You may recall that I took a mini break from my blog saying that I was going through a tough time. I really had one of the worst weeks of my life.See here.
I was in two minds on whether I should blog or not, but I decided that I am always going to be my authentic self and just be honest and real. I didn’t really want to make it public, but I have been inundated with emails and questions. I guess having a life and blog that is somewhat public, I can’t really avoid it.
Life happens. Life is not always about sunshine, unfortunately it storms too.
I never ever expected to type these words. Quite the opposite actually… Deep breath…
Greg and I have broken up.
It is very heart breaking, especially when you had a wonderful relationship – one you thought was it.
I found this quote and while it is so true, it is extremely difficult to do in hard times, but it gives me hope. “Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone. Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful.”
The healing process is tough. I’m strong though and growing even stronger from this.
I am still a hopeless hopeful romantic and that will never change.
While this was happening, I got the second bombshell for the week. There is nothing like getting a frantic, teary phone call at 6:30am. Our close family friend was murdered on the 30th of January, 3 days before his Birthday.
My heart broke even more and it was the worst week of my life.
He has been a part of our family for years – my entire life actually. My dad went to school with him from the age of 10 and he was my mom and dad’s best friend.
I cannot believe he was taken so violently and there is a massive void – I’m so used to him being a part of our family and seeing him weekly.
Some justice has been done. They’ve caught some of the murderers involved and I just hope they get put away for life.
So yes… it has been an incredibly hard time and not the best start to 2012 BUT… Life carries on and I just take each day as it comes. I am moving forward and looking at all the positives.
