Nostalgia with a Tinge of Jealousy

You know what’s a weird feeling? Finding out your high school sweetheart is engaged…to someone else. No matter how moved on I am, and how distant our lives have become, I have to admit that a piece of my heart sank when I heard the news.

It’s weird to think that could have been me. In fact, it was supposed to be me…seven years ago. But things are very different now, and although I know I wasn’t supposed to be that girl, it still hurts a little to think that I’m not.

I do wish them all the happiness in the world though. And although I love my life, and where I am right now, I think I’m going to be a little sad for the rest of the day.

I think that’s okay.

I think it's only natural to feel that way, and it'd be sort of weird if you didn't feel a twinge of sadness.

Life is pretty crazy.

P.S. You need to update your sidebar - you don't work at Harley anymore. ;)

I agree that that is a natural feeling, just a weird one.

I know exactly how you feel.

It does, however, go away when you realize how happy you are with yourself now, and how you wouldn't have gotten to this exact spot if you were still living that life.
