It’s funny how just one moment can change the course of your path.
One second, minute, hour… Etc.
You might not have started it. Someone else said or did something that directly affected you.
Maybe it was an accident.
One day you go about life as usual and
A car hits you.
And that’s it.
The moment that changed your “future”.
You wake up a little over a year later and you’re somewhere else……
I’m thankful for that day. Finally.
Finally thankful for that moment.
As the wheel was put in motion I didn’t know the outcome; so, naturally, I was scared.
Lots of tears. Thoughts of suicide. Anger.
Then came determination to prove them all wrong.
All of a sudden, you don’t care. In fact, it never crosses your mind. Life is going great. You smile everyday. You laugh. Real laughs….
(not those fake “I swear I’m fine, please don’t worry & go away” laughs.
I’m laying on my couch. In another county. Sober. Watching a TV that I bought with my own money. Smiling.
Smiling because I’m genuinely happy.

34/ still young.
Hard worker. Dedicated. Loyal. Careful.
A great friend. Honest. Loving.
For the first time in my life I’m not searching for someone to fill a gap/hole. Not searching for anyone to heal my broken pieces.
I did it. I fixed me(well, still am).
No more searching for that fill.
I’m full. I am so full.
