Thank You…

by Love Upenzi

I find myself picking apart the lyrics to Musiq Soulchild – Halfcrazy.  There’s a certain line that reminds me of you.  The emotion felt behind the lyrics, strong enough to cause me to pause.  I find myself remembering the good times.  So good to the point of smiling.  I smile so hard trying to hold onto to that memory.  But it always escapes my grip.  I can never hold on for long.  My mind floods with thoughts of the hurt, the betrayal and heartbreak.  Yet, I smile even harder.  Thankful. Grateful. Appreciative.  Thankful that I was able to experience and know what good love felt like before it all crashed and burned.  Grateful that I no longer walk in the shoes of blind love.  Lost with no direction.  No end to a beautiful beginning.  Incomplete.  Appreciative of who I am today.  Of the lessons I managed to learn through it all.  Because you not only taught me how to love, but how to recognize when it’s being reciprocated and when it’s time to walk away.  I no longer bump into walls of hurt, because as hard as you tried, you did not break me.  Today I stand, in love with me.

Thank You, for making me a woman.

It’s been a minute since we’ve talked…

First, I’d like to say congratulations. I’ve never known you to be one that makes life altering decisions lightly. I am sure you put a lot of thought into this and it’s the right decision for you. As usual, your thoughtfulness and reasoning is unique.

I’ve known you to embrace the “big and beautiful,” so this is a bit of a surprise to me but then your reasoning… You need to improve the quality of your life, for you and your son.

Again, congrats and I wish you the best of luck.
