“Write what scares you.” –Sarah Jio
I miss my friends. I miss high school. I want time to slow down. I don’t want to write about what scares me.
I don’t want to write about how I fell in love with a guy. Got engaged to that guy. Gave that guy everything I had. Then was put on the side while he tested the waters with other girls.
I don’t want to write about how I spent 3 years thinking my value was in how many guys would want me, and I still have a tendency to fall into that trap.
I don’t want to write about how much college scares me.
How the future scares me.
I don’t want to write about these things…but each event and each mistake taught me something important.
Life is messy, and it takes awhile to learn.
But if I could learn from someone else’s mistakes, or if someone else could learn from mine, then maybe, just maybe we could find the true meaning of efficient living.
And that’s the purpose of Windmill Ways. To share lessons learned, and help others not have to experience the same heart break.
I don’t want the lessons learned by this shattered heart to go to waste. If even one heart is able to learn without having to go through the pain and recovery, it will be worth it.
