Breaking Up is Hard to Do

So, maybe it's really not considered a break-up when you think about how long we dated, but Brett and I were together so much for five weeks--and now we are no more. With all of the emotional stress I've been under lately, I needed some time to get my emotions in check. I asked him if we could back off a while--just so I could focus on getting better--but I guess he wanted all or nothing. So, he decided to completely break things off. I didn't want that. I just needed some time. But I guess it's better that it happened now and not six months from now.

My emotions are really raw--Three people in my life have died in the last month--two from work. And it's really been hard for me to cope. I am getting better, but I'm just taking one day at a time.

I went back to the gym yesterday--they say exercise gives you endorphines that make you happy--and it really did make me feel a bit better. I had to switch gyms, so this was my first time at the new gym. I am going to continue to go.

This weekend, I plan to spend most of my time with friends--I think that will be good. Friday night, I may go out with some friends from work--and then on Saturday, myself and some friends are planning to go to Freedom Weekend Aloft--it's a big hot air balloon festival here in the upstate.

Nicole, I'm so sorry you're dealing with so many tough things. Death has a way of touching us deep in our spirits, and even moreso when it's someone we feel was cheated out of their life.

I'll be praying for you in the coming week. Hang in there. The Lord is faithful and has a plan for your life.
