Today ... Today ...

Today I have been thinking of the power of smell. I used to have this memory when I used to use a certain shampoo. Like of how horrible my life was at the time. I was with my exhusband at the time. We got married when I was 20 (I was six months pregnant). I really loved this guy with all my heart. (I fell for him the first day I was in highschool.) But you know I think dreams are meant to be dreams. I went out with him and shortly after that pregnant and then married. Life with him was not fun at all. He mentally abused me really bad in the beginning. But I really loved him and always thought that was ok. So when I smell that shampoo I think of how horrible my life was.

I had always avoided that brand of shampoo forever. But the other day I bought it. I think for you to be able to move on from your fear you need to face it. I totally smelled it and let the memories flood back. This time the thoughts were different. I started thinking that, yeah life was bad back then, but that was then. I was so strong that I was able to move on from that. I am such a better person now. I am happy...I am living.

So today's question is:

What is your favorite/unfavorite smell and why?

    I have a lot of smells that remind me of good things and bad things. There are ones that remind me of my ex and I just want to vomit.

    Anyway... don't buy that shampoo anymore! :)
