"The Rules"
« on: August 08, 2015, 12:07:47 AM »
I've always been a bit of a "free thinker," but have still followed many of the "rules of life." Throw that all (or at least a lot of it) out the window now.

Grateful for the past. Embracing the present. Trusting in the future.

Nothing in particular. Just a statement of how much this loss has changed my life and has impacted my thinking.

Nothing in particular. Uh huh. :) A loss like ours does change your perspective on life 'rules.'

I have always been a rule follower, a planner, Miss Practical.  I will be at 2 years in September and I am starting to embrace the spontaneous and the unexpected.  Taking risks and going outside my comfort zone is the new way.
You will forever be my always.

I'm sick of the rules. It's funny that the people that know the rules and are giving advice to me, are the people that still have their spouse.

Amen, sistah!  Or in my case sometimes, people who have never been married!

I've always been "it's better to beg forgiveness than ask permission" kind of girl... thank goodness that didn't change!

Ah. I see. I could never find the rule book so I made it up as I went along.

Breaking the rules this week!  Skipping mandatory (hellish) annual faculty retreat and first day of classes to go to England to meet A's family and go to a music festival.  Feeling like a major rebel!  Miss the retreat?  Miss the first day of school?  In my former life, not. a. chance.
