New Years Eve 2007

It's the end of one year and the beginning of another. Time to look back at where we have been as well as forward to where we want to go.

Went out on Saturday to Wild Mustang and what sucks the most is that I keep seeing people that I haven't seen in awhile and they always ask where my boyfriend is. Its like my heart breaking all over again and I have to explain that he broke up with me. When they inevitably ask "Why?" I just shrug and force a smile and say that he felt he needed something else. I do take console in the fact that they always say, "Well he's stupid" :) I just shake my head, wink, and say, "No...just confused."

Went on a date last night with a really nice, cute guy. But yet again, I am forcing myself somewhere I am not ready for. Its wrong to be with someone and wish they were someone else. I did tell him I was in a "weird place" and he said he understood and wouldn't force anything.

After my date, my best friend from college, Kyle, called and we had a LONG conversation about how I'm feeling and where I am at. He has a lot of wisdom...much of it just really hard to swallow LOL :) Basically Kyle told me that things would work out one way or another and to just give it time. Um...hello! Mr. Impatient here! :) I'm trying though.

This morning, As I drove up to take the dog to the eye vet, the world around me was thickly covered in fog. That's exactly how I feel right now. I can't see beyond maybe five feet in front of my face. This song came on the radio and it pretty much expresses how I feel.

I'm hoping for better days.

The message of this song really strikes a chord in me. I think it will be my theme song for 2008.

May all of you find "Better Days" this year! Each one is a gift and we are all here together. Try to find something you can do each day to make a "Better Day" for someone else, whether it be a small act or a big one, whether you know this person or not. Sometimes the smallest acts of kindness, have the most profound effects.

Mr. Glow Go Boy,
I stumbled upon your blog this morning merely by accident and I have to say that I am actually glad I did. I am in a similar situation as you are. I find myself broken and alone because my ex decided that he needed something other that what I could give him. I do the same thing as you. I force myself to go on dates with people knowing that it is not going to work. I am my worst enemy is what my father would tell me as a child and I completely agree with him.

I can tell you one thing that has guided me through my whole heartbreaking experience. You will never be happy with anyone until you are happy with yourself. It will never happen, even when you try your hardest to make it work. I had to realize that the hard way.

I enjoyed the song you posted on here today. It does have a very calming message to it. I would claim it as my theme however you have already done so.... Thanks! :) And I hope in some small way, this "random act of kindness" will bring a smile to your face. It is a new year and a chance to make the most of it. I thank you again for writing this blog, your paragraphs just gave someone else a bit of hope in life..... Thanks!
