And I don't know what I feel.... I know I made the right decision. I do not doubt that for a second. But it is still really weird to think that if I hadn't made that decision, I would be married and probably have a baby. And I know I would have been unhappy. It's one of those "sliding doors" moments where you see your life as it could have been and as it is now. Just one decision can change and reshape your life forever...

I have been through alot in the last 2 years, but I would not change any of it because it has made me who I am today. And I believe I am exactly where I am supposed to be at this moment in time. I am proud of how far I have come within myself. Yes, I am still single. But that is by choice. That is because I refuse to settle for something that isn't right or that could be better. I refuse to put up with anything less than what I deserve. From having bad relationships, I now know what I want out of new relationships and for that I am grateful.

I am now a strong, independant woman and I am so proud of myself for that. I never thought I could be like this, but I can and I am. Girl power hehehehe laugh.gif

So anyway, yes this was an attention whore post, but I deserve it damn it tongue.gif
That is all biggrin.gif
Someday everything will all make perfect sense... So for now laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason...

Oh Ali... I wonder if I will be feeling exactly this next May.

I'm proud of you for what you've achieved, it doesn't make the feeling any less weird though does it?

Thanks girls. Trust me, I will have a drink for all of you tongue.gif
And you're right Lib, today is a day to celebrate!

Kylie, I'm sure you will be feeling like this in May. I hope you do anyway. And you're right it doesn't make it feel any less weird.

Dont ever look back on your past with any regret tho. It has most definitely moulded and shaped you to the person that you are today.

You probably needed to go through what you did (broken engagement, etc.) to help you learn and grow as a person and to help you understand a bit more about yourself and what you want and what you need..

Reflection is always great. But never regret, as things always happen for a reason I believe..

Thanks Ruby Tuesday. And you're so right. I also believe everything happens for a reason, and I don't regret anything that I've done for a second.

Awww thanks ~*^K®i$t!^*~. That is so so sweet. I really appreciate you saying that xx

Thanks Lil Miss. I guess my courage has paid off!
And don't worry, I am stopping on my way home to get a bottle of champagne to celebrate, reflect and smile smile.gif

Ali Im so sorry I missed this.
While Im sure the day was hard imagine where your life would be now if you had married him??

you are a beautiful person Ali and you would be letting that beautiful soul down by taking anything less than the perfect partner.

You have come along way and you should be very very proud.
i know Im proud to call you my friend..

I've seen a friend go through this. I think it takes great strength to break an engagement.
Good on you.

Chelle, I am always home on a Friday night. At present, I have no life. So my couch gets a good work out wink.gif I so would have loved to gone to your place. We could have had hot chocolates and cake! Oh well, next time.

Thanks Tori. Yeah it's hard and it does take strength. I don't think you realise how much strength you have until you have to use it!
