25 DAYS TIL 25

Well, there are 25 days until my 25th birthday and I figured out what I want to share from my Road to 25. This year, was especially hard for me for so many reasons. One being that I broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years (only to get back with him) but I broke up with him so that I could be happy. I thought I was out of love with him, and for a while, I think I was, but then something happened.... don't ask what, because I honestly don't know, but something did. I started learning about love, for real.

Love is not always pretty, on-time, convenient or expecting. Actually, it's rather annoying, obnoxious and tiring. Even though we weren't together, Julio never hesitated to tell me he loved me and was even more willing to show me. Of course, the whole "It's not you, it's me......really" conversation didn't go over too well, but hey, it was the truth.

I had been going through so much in the months leading up to our naturally my mind was everywhere, no place in particular, just everywhere on everything. When we got back together a couple months later, we had a loooooooong talk about what we wanted for and from eachother and ourselves.....a looooooooooooooong talk. Over the past couple of months, we have been working to make ourselves better and happier so that we could make e/o better and happy.

Love revealed itself just in time and showed me that God actually does know what he's doing when he puts (or takes) people in/out of your life. For me, loving Julio didn't come easy, I had to work at it (it's getting easier though) and I really see that Love will reveal itself when it wants. Learning the hard way may not be so bad in the end.
