Thought I’d end up with Dennis, but he wasn’t a match. Wrote some songs about John, now I listen and laugh. Even almost got married and for Andrew, I’m so thankful. Wish I could say “thank you” to Michael cause he was an angel.
One Taught Me Love
One Taught Me Patience
One Taught Me Pain
Now I’m so amazing. I’ve loved and I’ve lost, but that is not what I see.
So Look What I Got
- Finished a bachelors degree in biology
- Traveled to amazing places around the world
- Gained amazing and wonderful friends in the process
- Made my way back to Jesus.
- Grew from the drama
- Accomplished dreams and goals
Look What You Taught Me
- To be stronger with the healing
- Love is a verb
- I have dreams worth pursuing
- Some people come into your life to teach you to let go.
- There is nothing wrong with who I am
- Still loveable even if broken by someone else
- Let of the fear of striking out – the game of baseball
- New hobbies I never knew I enjoy.
- How to be single and love it.
And for that, I say thank you, next. I’m so grateful for my exes.
I spend more time with my friends, I ain’t worried about nothing. Plus I met someone, we have better discussions, but this is going to last. He taught me love, he taught me patience, and how he handles pain, that sh!t is amazing. But that is not what I see, cause look what I’ve found. No need to search for love the old ways.
I’m grateful for my exes, thank you next.
One day I’ll walk down the aisle holding hands with my Dad. I’ll be thankful my Dad for helping me grow from all the drama. Only want to do it once real bad. Going to make it last. God forbid something should happen. Going to last.
I have so much love, have so much patience. I’ve learned from the pain. I turned out amazing because of it. I’ve loved and I’ve lost, but that’s not what I see. Cause look what I have found.
For that, I say thank you, next. Thank you to my exes for letting me go to find something better.
When this song came out I felt the validation in what I have been telling myself over the years. Every heartbreak, every moment I accomplished something I have dreamt of finally coming to reality. But mostly the song shows how far I have come in finding the one who one day come along and stay my life. To those who are still searching for love or yet to find love, the journey is full of heartbreak, beauty and unexpected moments that will shape you into who you are meant to be. In the end the one person who is meant to stay in your life may it be a guy or a girl, will be thankful for all your exes because this person will have the best you. Love is a verb. Love happens when you love others as well as yourself.
