In Good Company
So yesterday we went to the parade and to the Rice Festival. It was a new experience. I had lots of fun walking around, seeing people I knew and trying new food. I know it was a new experience for Brad too so that was good to see that he was having a good time.
It isn’t always about where you are in life it is about the people you are with that make those experiences better. It is important that you pick good company and people that will add to your lives. Making sure you are enjoying yourself in the presence of good people is a sign of self respect. We have to be responsible for ourselves before we can be responsible to others.
I am not going to sit here and pretend like things went great when they didn’t. Last night was a bit rough but it is over and today is a new day. I get my feelings hurt easy and that is on no one but myself. I allow it to happen and I am sensitive. Things are said and done and you can’t take them back but it is a matter of how you move forward. What goes on now will soon be a distant memory if even a memory at all. The strongest people are strong because of the pain they have been through. I feel very weak right now but I know that it takes a lot of pain to make the biggest change. In all the negativity and put downs it is important that I stay focused on my goals and who I am as a person.
I am thankful that today is a new day.
