"We are becoming the men we wanted to marry..."

There are many ways to interpret those words (a quote I saw on Gala's site). We're becoming nasty, because women always want bad boys? We're becoming stronger and more self-sufficient, because women like those qualities in men? We're earning more and providing for ourselves, rather than waiting for a man to do it?

In the past year I've become tougher than I ever imagined possible. I've dealt with everything that's been thrown at me and emerged (relatively) unscathed and all the stronger for it. I spend a lot of my time volunteering... walking dogs and listening to those in need. I go running. I go to the gym. I eat healthily and drink a fraction of the alcohol that I used to. I laugh. I work hard (most of the time). I'm not afraid to cry. I'm fiesty and I stand up for myself, no matter what.

I spend my time loving my life.

I've always wanted to marry a man like that.

Maybe, just maybe, I've become someone he could have married.
