Fight for Me

“I didn’t want to leave this relationship without a fight. But the tricky thing about relationships is that they don’t work out if the other person isn’t willing to fight for it too. And he wasn’t willing to fight for me…for us.

If someone is unable to see what makes you special, beautiful and worth pursuing a future with, don’t waste your time trying to jump back into that relationship. They’re not worth it. I know it’s extremely difficult to be told that you need to move on, especially when you’re still so in love with the person, but you will realize eventually that you’re better off without someone who doesn’t look at you like you’re the greatest thing that ever happened to them.

There is someone out there for you who will be everything that you need and everything that you never knew you wanted in a partner. Someone will not only see a future with you, but also look forward to it every single day.

When someone who you have been in a relationship with isn’t willing to fight for what you had, don’t keep trying to make it work. Anyone who is not willing to fight for you, is not worth fighting for. ”

If he wants you and doesn’t want to lose you he’ll find a way of meeting your needs, if not he’ll make excuses.

Gratitude Challenge – Day 1 of 30

wpid-screenshot_2014-08-16-19-49-03-1.pngSo here we go. Day 1 of 30 in my gratitude challenge.  Today, we are asked to write about gratitude for “home”.

Coming home from having virtually no privacy on the camino, I am very grateful for the “lack of people” in my house and some peace and quiet.  I was so used to being surrounded by people in the common shower, the sleeping area, the stairwells. Unless, I went to the bathroom and closed the stall door, I didn’t get much “alone time” at the end of the day.  

I appreciate the comfort of couch cushions :), my own shower without flip flops, a washing machine, and the same wonderful bed night after night.  I also appreciate the simplicity of my home.  A year or so ago, I got rid of a lot of excess. Coming home after carrying all I needed as 10 lbs on my back, it was a far easier transition.

It is really striking how much one can appreciate such seemingly simple things that we mostly take for granted in our homes. Sometimes it takes being away and without to appreciate what it means to come home and have so much.
