So today my Facebook memories brought up a picture(below), from 3 years ago. Generally speaking, I don’t like the Facebook memories feature, mostly because it always brings up embarrassing, childish or weird things that I posted in the past that I would rather just sweep under the carpet. This time they actually brought up a good memory. It was a time when I decided to become a new woman, and I have never been the same since.
When this picture was taken, I had just come from what you would call a rebirth LOL. Prior to this, I had left home with the hopes of finding myself, because Vancouver was just not working for me anymore. I was frustrated with everything, and had frustrated all the people that I love, and love me.
To find myself, I made the journey to Calgary because I thought going there would change everything, not realizing that I had taken what I was running from with me to Calgary. God, was it COLD!! It took me the whole winter, and a few tears here and there to realize that I was just running from myself. How do you run from yourself??? The best thing though, was that I learned to face and own up to my problems and finding ways to fix them.
