Yes, I decided, a man can truly change. The events of the past year have taught me much about myself, and a few universal truths. I learned, for instance, that while wounds can be inflicted easily upon those we love, it’s often much more difficult to heal them. Yet the process of healing those wounds provided the richest experience of my life, leading me to believe that while I’ve often overestimated what I could accomplish in a day, I had underestimated what I could do in a year. But most of all, I learned that it’s possible for two people to fall in love all over again, even when there’s been a lifetime of disappointment between them.

I’d love to, she finally said,”on one condition.”
I steadied myself, hoping it wasn’t something too awful.
“You have to promise that you won’t fall in love with me.”
I knew she was kidding me by the way she laughed, and I couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief.
Sometimes, I had to admit, Jamie had a pretty good sense of humor.
I smiled and gave her my word.

… when they think of happiness as a destination, were always thinking that someday we’ll be happy, we’ll get that car, that person in our life that will fix everything. But happiness is a mood, and it’s a condition or a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry it comes and goes, it’s not permanent, and if people thought of it that way, people would find happiness a lot more often.
