I was reading back through my LJ posts from 10 years ago, as you do, and enjoying the glimpses into my life back then. It had some really good moments, and Charlie was always a source of joy and pride, but I was really not happy then. Life was very uncertain, I kept losing jobs, we had no money, and my relationship with my husband was deteriorating fast.

Today, ten years later, I'm is a good place. It's really good to be be able to look back at the person I was and know I'm not that person anymore.

Charlie, of course, continues to be wonderful. He's just kind of a grown up now! Cheesy mustache and all.

Speaking of good things, I don't think I mentioned on LJ that we went back to the UK this past summer. It was super awesome and wonderful. I think I shall babble about that in another post.

I had to laugh, though - in one of my posts from 10 years ago, My three goals were 'get published, go to England, meet Sting'. Two out of three in 2015 so far!

LOL! Driving around England was the one of the best parts for me!

This post makes me really happy.

I remember a long-ass time ago, like probably almost 10 years -- it might have been shortly after I got together with λ -- I made a post to LJ about "I've realized the importance of asking oneself -- are you happy with your partner? And if not, why are you staying with them?" I was mostly thinking about it from the perspective of someone who had been in an unhappy relationship and was now in a happy one, but I remember you and one other person both read that post and did some introspection and then either posted or emailed me to say "Man, I am not happy in this relationship" and then both of you split up with the person eventually. At the time I was kind of like, whoa, I wasn't actually trying to break up relationships? but seeing how much happier you are now, I am just glad things turned out the way they did. Also this comment sounds like I'm trying to take credit for that? and that was DEFINITELY not my intention? I was mostly just thinking that I remember when you were in an unhappy place, and now you're in a happy place, and I'm so so so glad.

That's funny. I'd be interested to see that if I did answer in a post.

I'm glad you are in a good place, too.

Your visit to London was one of the highlights of my summer!

It was so great to meet you in real life, too. That was so much fun!

Dave said at one point 'your friends are really great.'

My ten years are gone. I deleted that journal.

It is nice to revisit the last from time to time. I think it's healthy, Had a few ex friends on here who didn't and told me about it.... Nope. Don't miss that.
