My name is Allison.
I was dating my best friend and the “love of my life” for the past three years. The last of those years, we were engaged to be married. Our wedding was supposed to be April 1st, 2012. Two weeks before our big day, he told me he had been cheating on me with my good friend, and bridesmaid, for the past eight months. One of the cruelest April Fool’s jokes I’ll ever experience? Probably.
In a matter of seconds, my life was flipped upside down.
No more, relationship. No more, wedding. No more, “for the rest of our lives”.
Pure & utter confusion, sadness, & anger? Absolutely.
This blog is my attempt at healing. At finding one thing a day for an entire year that makes me happy, and photographing it. Talking about it. Searching for the good in things, even when I feel the world I knew is shattered.
I am choosing to learn from this. To pray about this. To not let this define me. I am choosing to find joy, rather than dwelling in anger.
This next year is not what I was ready for. Not what I ever expected. But I have faith. Faith in better days. Faith that wherever this road guides me to, it will be more glorious than anything I could imagine.
I am choosing to be happy, daily.
