Today is the first day since my post-breakup/mini-breakdown that I felt like my old self. Today is the first day I’ve had a good day in a long time. I even felt good at work, mostly because I had completed a major deadline, and I was proud of the quality of my work. I also managed to keep my mind of the eXBoyfriend. I had worked two 12 hour days in a row, and actually enjoyed pouring myself into my project.
I even got to leave work a few hours early, sending me straight to the clearance racks at Atlantic Station. Just minutes before my early exit, I got a fortuitous email from a girlfriend regarding an extra ticket to the Sex and the City Movie with free cocktails at the swanky Dolce Restaurant I had been wanting to check out. Its lucky, spontaneous, and free events such as these that make me feel so alive and so grateful to be a single twenty-something in Atlanta.
This was my second time seeing the movie, and it was just as good as the first time. Certain scenes in the movie touched my soul to the point that I released a few tears. Surprisingly, the tears only came during the happiest moments, and I never cried for the many sad scenes, although I could feel my soul rise and fall in line with each character’s emotions. I left the movie feeling mushy…not about the romance or the fairytale endings.
I left the theater feeling grateful for my friends and sisters and everyone who helps me take care of myself. There was a quote in the movie about how the friends were mirrors to each other, helping each other clarify the reality around them, & see the truth they may not yet be strong enough to accept about themselves or their relationships. I think that’s the most important thing my friends do for me.
For everyone who shared their strength when I was too weak…who comforted me when I was in pain…who put a smile on my face when I needed it…who reminded me that I was not alone in this world.
For everyone who added their 2 cents…who helped me see and accept the reality about my life, my relationships, and my wrongdoings. For everyone who cared enough to talk the truth.
I just want to thank all my friends, sisters, and well-timed strangers who support me.
I cannot express how grateful I am to have people I can count on. Just know that there’s a glowing heart of love and appreciation for you and all you do for me.
