In my mind, 2010 started out kinda crappily. (Yes, I made up that word and I’m going with it.)
I got dumped in a rather unfortunate and unforeseen manner, and I did not like it. For the majority of the first six months of the year, I think I was downright pathetic. I think there are many people who will agree who may not tell me to my face.
But no worries. Events then took place that shook me up (yet again) and also caused me to wake up. The past is the past. I am done with the nonsense.
I attended my cousin’s wedding in August. It was a beautiful affair. Won’t lie, went to it a tad jaded, but I was very happy for my cousin and his bride to be.
Of course, I couldn’t get past this occasion without some absurd moments. My grandmother asked my mom if was I upset because my younger cousin was getting married before me.
And to find out my grandmothers were talking over continental breakfast at the hotel to discuss that I will find the right guy eventually.
SHUT UP PLEASE.
Is that all I’m waiting for in life?! Goodness, NO. Guess what? A single girl in her mid-20s can actually be satisfied with how things are going and not have to constantly search for a potential suitor!!!!!! Did I even give any indication that I was so sad about this anymore?!
From what I am learning, I am finding that I could have a far greater purpose than just marrying a good guy and starting a family (though I do hope and pray for that). You know what? That’s just too darn safe.
And as fate would have it, once I returned from the wedding, I met a heck of a lot of really interesting people. And my thought processes have been challenged once again, and all for the better. I have jumped into major contemplations I never had before. Stepped out of the bubble.
And maybe I didn’t get it at first. But 2010 was majorly awesome. And everything happened the way it was supposed to.
