There is #tbt Throwback Thursday.  That is when you post in social media something from the past, such as a picture in Instagram or something like that.

Today is not Thursday so I am calling this #lbs Looking Back Sunday.

Most of you know that I started my blog in early 2012 due to the unbearable pain I was feeling from having my heart broken.  Writing here allowed me to get the pain out of my heart. I credit this blog with saving my sanity.

It is odd to look back at some posts now.  In some posts I don’t recognize the writer behind the words at all; and in others it is if I just wrote it today. I guess Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr was right when he wrote: “The more things change, the more they remain the same”.

The post that I chose to start this #lbs series is “Of Prayers, Expectations, Love and Hope”.  It was written June 23, 2012.  It is crazy to think that I have had this blog for that long.

I chose this one because it still fits, even after 8 years have gone by.  I still believe in the power of prayers, in hope and in love.  I still asks God for guidance, and trust where it leads me.  And of course, I am still fighting expectations.

I am no longer in touch with the person that I wrote about it in the beginning  of that post as “my favorite voice on the phone”. That person, who I thought could potentially be the one, was just a distraction.  Still I am thankful for him but chose not to continue with the friendship.

I hope that everyone reading this is safe, healthy, full of hope and self love.

Hope is not ignoring the darkness, it is the infinite belief that light always come.  It is believing that our inner light is stronger than any darkness around.

Life is beautiful. You are beautiful.  Everything passes.  Enjoy the moment! ♥♥
