One Year Ago:

Today would've been my one year anniversary of my first real relationship. Today also marks 4 months of being out of that relationship and 4 months of being out of medic school.

I've tried to live my life with no regrets. And while I don't regret many things about our past relationship, I do have a few. I regret not being able to know when to stop pushing and just sit back and allow things to happen organically. I regret not being able to recognize that something was going on inside of me (emotionally, physically) and trying to fix that instead of projecting it outwards.

Maybe "regret" is the wrong word. I suppose I'm sad when I think about the mistakes that were made because they ruined something I loved. But I always did have to learn the hard way! So I'll acknowledge my mistakes and grow from them. Every experience we go through in life is meant to add to our character and allow us to help others through similar situations when they go through them. Everything happens for a reason.

So now that I've acknowledged the reason I am feeling sad this morning, it's time to shake it off and move forward with the day. :-)

Side note, I've decided to make some changes in the near future. A blog will be coming soon about those decisions. :-)
