Business, Relationships, and Trips from **Wife of a Wounded Marine** by Karie

Wife of a Wounded Marine: Business, Relationships, and Trips -

So my life is changing at Mach speed. Everyday something new comes up and even though my days are fairly slow, they are extremely stressful. Honestly, I like it that way.

My newest project is to open up a shoe store. After finishing up the Entrepreneur bootcamp at Syracuse University I have a ton of confidence and I feel I have the support needed to be successful. And honestly, even if it isn't successful, what's the worst that could happen? Failure doesn't scare me as much as it use to. All it means is that it's time to move on to the next thing! I am well on my way to a Spring opening. That is what I'm hoping for anyway. This Summer on the Gulf Coast is suppose to be amazing for tourists. I don't want to miss out on that. Once I have the building locked down and the name is confirmed by the state, I'll give more details. :)

A few posts ago I mentioned that I had met someone. Well, he's still around and still amazing. I thought I'd touch up on that. I won't say there hasn't been a few issues. I have really had to teach myself how to balance missing my husband and moving on with my life in a way that is healthy but isn't dragging the people I love around me down. I have had quite a few spazzy moments. Being in a relationship is a scary thing for me. I loved my husband, but he wasn't always good to me. Not to mention, I miss him constantly. It has been a little difficult to let the things of the past go. Realizing that not all people are going to hurt you, the sky doesn't always fall on your face, the people I love are not going to all drop dead, and sometimes things are just meant to be... quiet... and that's ok. I think I'm doing an ok job with everything. Time is my friend.
