Have you ever wondered what would happen if you could tell that one person how you truly felt at one moment in time? At times we often sit and think of the “what if?”, but aren’t always left satisfied in knowing that it was just something we couldn’t change. Left trying to figure out would it play out the same…

It’s rare that we have the occasion to tell people how we feel after not doing it the first time. I’m happy to say that I received my second chance. I made the best of it. What’s the worse that could happen? I always wondered why it was so hard for me to express myself and to allow people in, but then I realized that I wasn’t the only person who had this issue.

And wasn’t even because I had hopes that we would be together, but that I actually told him how I felt and it felt good to get it out!! Made me feel so much better…It’s a good thing that we can still be friends. I won’t take this moment for granted, and I plan on making sure that the people in my life know EXACTLY how I feel!

Side Note: He did say that he always thought that I was beautiful inside and out, and I had a smile that will not forget! Owwww! =)

I’ve been blessed…I have wonderful people in my life! I even appreciate those who didn’t stand by my side during my time of need! They allowed me to get a feel fo
