Oh, have I learned a lot. Most of those 'mistakes' had amazing and OFTEN wonderful consequences that have made me the VERY strong woman I am today.
I love deeply! I laugh ALL THE TIME. I have a BEAUTIFUL life. Sure, I struggle with food (and my jeans) and the things I have said to people that I should not have said (some things I said to my kids and some to kids in 5th grade!)...
I'm too strong for my own good sometimes...I am rough and tough and defensive..
and, even when I'm not on the scale, I cry just about every day.
Sometimes sad tears, but, more often than that, very happy tears.
I have a beautiful life...that I know.
I love and laugh abundantly.
And dream of donuts and kind words.

Saw this on a friend's blog the other day and just can't stop thinking about it!
It makes SO much sense.Your (amazing) memory reminds you to NOT touch the hot stove or to NOT eat something that made you sick by allowing you to remember how much it hurt and how painful it was!
And this is the very same reason that you remember the tough relationships you were in and the stupid things you allowed! It's so that you will REMEMBER to date someone who is KIND and to remember to NOT allow someone to make you feel bad again.
I know...you have to read it over a few times...but it's really amazing to me. I always wondered why I would 'go back' to those negative moments in my life over and over again
...and now I truly understand why.
I remember how much I got burned.
And I want to be sure it never happens again.
