17 years ago, I was 24 years old and was living a busy single life. I enjoyed my friends and my alone time equally. But I always felt like I was searching for something ~ just didn't know what it was. Little did I know how meeting a friend for drinks at SueEllen's that night would change my life. We talked easily over beers and listening to the band. As we left that night, she asked me for a kiss. It was a sweet peck on the lips.
7 years ago, we had a wonderful celebration of our union. It included all of our family and friends and made us feel loved and supported.
About 17 weeks ago, my life changed again. I am now searching for something again. I am searching for strength and peace in this new path. I need to find myself. I need to know that I am lovable and I will survive.
This change has been bittersweet. It has allowed me to look inward and to reach outward. I hope to continue this growth and look forward to being me again.
