Things that can make your day...

"I was thinking about you last night," says old, random guy I used date/see/whatever. "Why is that?", asks curious mouse, as she rarely speaks to said boy as he has a troubled past that mouse wants to keep her nose clear out of but wishes him no ill (but does like to know he's a-ok). "I was thinking about the people who are inspiring and who will remember me when I'm gone," he went on... And that's when she got confused and he realized it. "I'm just saying you're a cool chick. You went and lost bucket loads of weight and became a crazy runner chick and you helped me out when I was down and out..." You never realize how much of an impact you have on someone's life when you're in a moment I guess. I thought I was just a throw away person to him. Someone who he could use when convenient but I cared about his health and well-being because he was sort of troubled. It's amazing to see that I was more than just a distraction in his life, that he does pay attention to what is going on in my life when he hits me up for updates and that the information in my life does matter. I even challenged him to make a change and try something new that I hope sticks for him. Because he deserves a little sunshine in his life....for blowing a little sunshine up my arse :P

unexpected comments are the best, it was nice of him to tell you that... talk about starting the day off right! ;o)

I've found that when old flames say complimentary, flirty or even wistful things, it does wonders for my self esteem. Especially when said comments were un-solicited. Enjoy them.

Now that is something that makes you feel soooo good inside you wanna burst! Wow, there's just something empowering about seeing that side of the story.

I'm not surprised in the least, but those are things that other people tend to see before you do yourself.

I think its awesome that he told you that, it sure is nice to hear those kinds of things every once in a while. I think you impact more people's lives than you know. You're definately a motivation to me to get myself moving more!

And its really cool that you are still there for him. :)

My first real boyfriend was the youngest son of my former 5th grade teacher. I met him the summer after I gradutated from high school. I still hear from him every once in a while. He was a fly boy (pilot) that didn't want kids and that was a deal breaker for me. He did eventually marry (no kids that I know of) and they were living with her parents (they were in their late 30's at that point).

One other serious boyfriend was a youngest, and I ended up marrying a youngest.

I am an oldest.

I never knew if it was their free spirits that I loved or the fact that they were used to just following along with the crowd and I could sort of have things my own way.

I have been married for 22 years and have three kids (18, 14, 10). things turned out okay.

Whenever I start to wonder about what might have been, I remember that I could have been in my 30's and living with my mother. . .

Jen said...
