I know it seems rather pathetic. However, when you are rejected in such a cold callous way I think that everyone would look at themselves and think...wow I must be this awful worthless person to be treated like this. On the flip side I've been reading different things/blogs/etc. that talk about you only feel as bad as you allow yourself to feel (ie. empowering the person who is makes you feel bad and all that other self-help guru stuff). So back to making this positive.
It was a FABULOUS surprise. Tons of gorgeous jewellery. One of the most touching things was the cards...that is right the first card I knew would be amazing because it was from Taylor and made me laugh and cry all at the same time.
|I got this awesome new collection of jewellery.|
|Some of our favourite things were all showcased. The fleur de lis bangle, owl necklace, key necklace, and two bright and beautiful necklaces that really brighten my mood.|
|The earring! Owls (one of our symbols) and dangly earring which I definitely desperately needed.|
But this is how great of a friend Taylor is...she must have said something at an alumni meeting (that I miss terribly!!!) These notes were so incredible I thought I would share these messages so that I could also look back on them when I needed to be reminded. The were beautiful from the simple birthday wishes to more detailed messages of hope and love. Each were equally important in lifting me up.
And just like that I felt something different in the pit of my stomach...the ache wasn't so bad the hurt not so sharp. Geez I sure do need to write these ladies a thank you note. And that is why I am so greatful for the opportunities being part of such an amazing sorority has presented me with. To know I can lean on them for support when I need it certainly feels like much less of a burden to bear. Of course Taylor knew just how to lift me up or at least shine a little light on.
