Life and other disasters.
I guess I started this blog to record all the different events that happen in my life. I also wanted to keep a personal record of my own history as I think it’s always important to be able to look back and laugh whenever possible.
My life, just recently, has been turned upside down by set of circumstances well out of my control.
Six weeks ago, Mr Frog proposed to me. He proposed while we were 18m underwater, while scuba diving off the Cairns coast. Naturally, I said yes in a blast of bubbles. It took me around 7 hours to stop smiling, and pinching myself.
In hindsight, that should have been the start of something wonderful. Mr Frog and I should have been starting a new life together as husband and wife. Instead, Mr Frog decided that he didn’t actually love me enough to go through all the hassles.
This has taken me quite a while to come to terms with. So, now I find myself looking at a whole different landscape. Instead of being happily engaged, I’m now single.
I’m humbled by the way that my family and friends have closed ranks around me – providing me with support and strength when I’ve needed it the most.
I’ve plumbed new depths, feeling helpless and hopeless. I’ve been angry, and scared, and bitter and frustrated. I’m filled with so many questions, yet I know there will never be suitable answers.
So be it.
I am 28, single, independant.
I’m sad, lonely, disapointed, but remain hopeful. There is a better life out there.
