I’ve Been Happy


Most of you might recognize this photo, for those who don’t it’s the photo that I use as my header image to my blog. I’ve used it ever since I took the picture. However, since that photo and now, my life has change in wonderful ways.

I’ve been gone for quite some time and I apologize for that, life gets in the way of many things when we let it. When I left it was due to a lack of purpose in my writing. I was putting down words but they never really meant anything to me, I didn’t feel like it was the best I could do. Thus I stopped, but it’s different now. The world and myself are different than before, I’m actually happy.

The reason I am happy is a multitude of things, my family, me accepting myself, actually having a decent job. Also realizing that just because I fail at something, doesn’t mean I can’t try again.

The reason I post the image up there is because within all the reasons I am happy, I found someone. Someone who has had the struggles as I have and who understands completely, but also doesn’t allow those struggles to keep her down. Nor does she allow them to keep me down, and I hope I have been doing the same for her. She isn’t the only reason I’ve been able to be happy, but she is certainly one of the biggest reasons I’ve been able to stay that way.

So I went to the town again where I took that photo, with her and my family. I saw an opportunity to change something, to take the photo again. This time where I’m not alone on the bench, but with her.

  1. I love the way you put the old single photo at the beginning of the post and the new double photo at the end. It gave me one of those “awwww” moments. Congratulations to both of you – and welcome back!

  2. I’m so happy for you! I love knowing you were listening to carolers in the new photo. Sometimes we have to take a break, go somewhere else for a while to come back different. From my humble perspective, it’s like you went away on an adventure of the soul and have returned stronger and wiser. Welcome back!
