I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long! I was sick and traveling but I’m back now! Did you miss me? I sure hope so! Let’s dive in and get deep today! Right before my flight home on Sunday, I saw a quote that stopped me dead in my tracks. It said “Nothing ever goes AWAY until it teaches us what we need to know.” It left me breathless! There was a time I felt I would never heal from all the ex factor had put me through…and all I had allowed in my life. Have you ever felt pain so bad you thought you were going to die from it right there and then?! That was me with the ex factor. Now almost 7 months to the day of our breakup and I’m in love again…living in an imperfect world with Elijah that just might one day…be perfect for us. There’s days I don’t think Elijah and I are going to make it and I just want to let go. Then I’ve days like today when I wake up feeling like Elijah is my life. My chance to get it right. My heart. And it’s in those moments that my life with the ex factor seems so far away. I feel like the pain and the hurt were ten years ago. It’s the strangest feeling to get over heartbreak and betrayal and dust yourself off with your heart open…again. I never thought I had the strength to get here. I guess what the universe was trying to tell me is I learned all I could from the ex factor and it’s ok that I let go of the pain. I’m so grateful for these moments and even with all he put me through, I wish the ex factor nothing but the best. I am free to love without the rip tides of pain and destruction! Man, God is good ALL the time! ?? ~KJM on Temptation Tuesday?
