Don’t wait for the other shoe to drop

Totally loving life. The sun is so bright and warm. The love is intense. The laughter contagious. The feelings of content strong. And the culmination of all of these amazingly pure feelings and precious moments are overwhelming.

I have been waiting for “the other shoe (of frustration, anger, unhappiness) to drop. Constantly pinching myself to make sure this is real life. Our life. Our new life.

But ya know what? I am tired of waiting for that other shoe. For the first time in my entire life, I feel confident that I can face any obstacle and overcome it hanging on to my hope and happiness.

That other shoe is missing. It is long gone. I’m done searching for it. I’m done holding my breath, waiting for it to suddenly pop up out of nowhere.

It’s time for me to go buy a new pair of shoes.
