Closing Another Chapter

This morning I'm back in my apartment, for the last weekend before moving and starting over again. I look around and I see relics and memories of the past year and it's all very much bittersweet.

On one hand I see the failures and heartaches of the past year, on the other I see the bright, optimistic future that I'm starting this weekend. I see dashed dreams, but I see closure and promises of a better tomorrow. It's been such a rollar coaster ride including that ill dizzy feeling I get whenever I get off of one.

I'm sitting here listening to Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven, and I remember the things that I left behind and the memories that only remain. I'm also sitting here excited and for the first time in a long time, I'm happy.

I'm going to be ok. I never could convince myself of that until now. I'm going to be ok.

I can only thank God for second chances, after getting a second chance, again. My life starts now. I'm ready.


  1. Awww :) I'm glad you're finally able to see that everything is going to be ok :)
    I do wish I'd gotten to come up one last time to say good bye to the old place, but maybe its better that I just have fond memories and no tearful ones (Aunt Sara's anyone?)

  2. Aunt Sarah's sounds great, but you have to check out Janine's aunt's resturant. It's goooooood foooood!

  3. You gotta love starting over...
