Food For Thought

"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in
life as by the obstacles which one has overcome while trying to succeed."
-Booker T. Washington


What obstacles have you had to overcome to get to where you are today?

(You don't have to list them all just something you want to share)

I'll start...
Obstacles.... let's see...

I'll start from the end, My position in life--I'm the happiest I've been in a long time.

Why?

Because I was in a realationship for over 2yrs and for the last year and change of the relation my ex wasn't much of a boyfriend to me. He cheated on me several times and never gave me the respect and treatment I deserved as his woman.

I broke up with him finally and I took some time to get my emotional status together and during that time I made a guy friend that initially was strictly a business matter that developed into a friendship which ultimately he is my boyfriend.

I do thank my ex for one thing though. (it's kind of like the R. Kelly Trapped in the closet #5)

My ex had a friend who liked him and tried to get closer to him by befriending me. She and I spent some time together and she introduced me to many different women, one of them is now my best friend. My bestfriend and I planned our annual trip to Miami and she told her friend, who is now my boyfriend about the trip and he and his friends decided they wanted to join us. So her friend called me frequently so we could get the logistics of the trip together and from their we developed a friendship which is now a beautiful relationship.

Wheeeew!
