Introducing, Mr. Smith

Once I left my 25 year marriage, I felt like a failure.

“I don’t need no man”, was my tagline. That is what I told myself, but there is a difference between need, and want. I like men, and knew one day the right one would show up. At the time he didn’t look like what I envisioned, but that was just another thought process that needed letting go. God had proved multiple times that His plan is nothing like mine.

Time has passed, and I see that people come into my life for a reason, and sometimes only a season. Each person has made me better in some way. My hope would be that they are better for visiting, but that is up to them. A really good relationship is about so much more than love. This year I’ve learned patience.

It takes a butt ton of patience, and understanding.

When I met Mr. Smith I told him, “You don’t have to worry about breaking my heart. I can do that myself!” More time has passed, and I know that he wouldn’t.

When I told him, “God gave me this title, Bentnotbroken,” Smith showed me a picture of his back. Tattooed from the top of his spine, all the way down, were the words, “Bent not broken.”

I just sat there in shock, and stared at the picture.

Had God given me a Blog/Book title, or a man?

Who You Are

I bought a necklace on Etsy, and wore it everyday. It was a Meme that said, “Life doesn’t sparkle unless you do.” The finish started peeling off from the wear.

I found this one today, and purchased it immediately.

I was looking for this quote, and found the necklace.

That is the same way I found the other necklace. Just out of curiosity. Is it a Meme, or a necklace? It’s both. I’m excited to give my other one a much needed rest.

I’m learning about stillness. It is hard to find complete stillness. To sit still, or have alone time is one thing, but to tune into your surroundings and everything is completely still, at the same moment?

It’s a magical moment to find out who you really are.
