To The Boys I've Learned From

Thank you for everything you taught me.

To The Boys I've Learned From

I want to start by saying that I have no resentment towards you. I am so thankful for the time we did spend together and for all that I learned from you. However, I am glad that our time together came to an end.

I don't blame you for not wanting me. I can't be mad at you for not wanting to be with me. It sucked, but I can't blame you for being human. People don't always choose to hurt others, even when they do, so I forgive you.

Because of you, I learned that I deserve to be in a relationship that makes me happy; a relationship that feeds the soul and helps me grow. I learned that I am worthy of connections that are loving, nourishing, kind, and authentic. Because of you, I have learned that I should never settle for anything less than the man I deserve. The places I visit and the people I journey through life with should make me feel safe, loved, and enough; and you didn't.

I have found that I deserve someone who loves me with every beat of his heart and someone who is constantly thinking about me. I need someone that helps me to accomplish my goals and protect me from my fears. I need someone who will always treat me with respect, love every part of me, especially the things I am insecure about. I should be with someone who makes me happy, so happy, smiling for no reason, happy.

Because of you, I found a man that loves me with his whole heart, and more. I found someone who cares about all parts of me, not just my physical being. I found someone who loves God and helps me grow in my relationship with Him. I found someone who builds me up, not tear me down. Someone who has taught me to love who I am and see life from a whole new perspective.

Because of you, I learned that love doesn't have to be pretty. But because of that, I have come to the realization that you have to have the ugly side of love to cherish that beautiful and extraordinary side of love.

I can only hope you learned from your mistakes and that you find someone that makes you happy.

I wish you the best.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Remembering the Memorial in Memorial Union

Sometimes it's hard to remember that Memorial Union at the University of Missouri is actually a memorial, not just a place to take a nap on a couch and get Starbucks.
