This one is a tough one, there are so many but I’m going to go for one less obvious because I feel like it’s cheating if I say about when my children were born. That’s the obvious and best answer, but I’m gunna think outside the box.
A time you never want to forget.
There are plenty of reasons as to why I would never forget these years. Many people and experiences made these years what I would class as incredible, heartbreaking, confusing, unforgettable, amazing and down right difficult.
That’s a lot of emotions in one go. I’m talking about the years between 2016/2018. These were some of the hardest times I have been through, but it’s what made me who I am today. Overcoming all obstacles and issues in these years, be it good or bad, lead me to being the person I have grown to love unconditionally. I loved and lost in these years. That was the hardest part by far.
A few of those people will be people who changed my life forever and who I will never take for granted. Some I still speak to, others I sadly don’t. Not through fault of anyone but just time and distance. I made incredible friends, fell in love with people who made my time ever so special, lost a lot of good (and a few bad) on the way and overcame so much of my own personal issues during this time. I will be forever grateful for the life lessons I learnt in those years, the experiences and the adventures that will never be forgotten.
If I hadn’t had lived my life the way I did, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I wouldn’t have realised things about myself that I have learnt to love, grown the confidence in who I am and be proud of it and also, have the friendships that I cherish today. I look back and I smile, through the good times and the bad all I can say about my time in those years is that I will be eternally greatful for all that I have loved, and lost. Some I wish I hadn’t, but as my life continues on the path I have chosen I have learnt that time is a great healer.
All I have left to say is, turn to page 394, after all this time? Always.
