January 11, San Francisco, CA: Had a conversation with a friend tonight about relationships and being ready to transition from growing on your own to growing with another person. She shared her philosophy on being rooted in your own life before moving forward with any relationship. I realize that I had been relying on affirmation from others to help me feel whole, which isn't really being rooted at all. After all that transpired in the past few weeks, I can honestly say that I know I will be emotionally ok. I hadn't felt that way in a very long time. And I do feel prepared to continue my growth in a relationship.
I also had to resort to the iPhone camera after spending most of today with the camera in its bag and forgetting it tonight. Live and learn.
