I’m going to come right out and answer this one as true as I can, what first came to mind when I saw this. What story do I wish to live?
I want to live a story where I have a lot more patience with my husband and my kids. I want them to always know how loved and cherished they are. I want to give them loads of my time to teach them, well the boys anyway. I want my house to be clean and organized. I want to be happy and not constantly worried about money and feeding my family.
What story do I wish to let go of? I wish I could let go of my ex in-laws. They were the nicest people and I worry that they aren’t involved in the life of my ex-husband (I see her parents all the time and NEVER hear mention of them, even if I ask). I want to write them, call them, visit them…but I can’t. It’s not my place. My ex and I had no kids, so all ties were severed. But I still miss them, painfully so. And I wish I could let it go.
