I have had a knot in one of my most favorite necklaces for the longest time (I'm guessing atleast over a year). The knot formed way back when (because I can't have new things) and I have struggled to fix it, and than forgot about over and over. I finally just gave up and thought I would have to live with the knot (because apparently I cannot have nice things either).
I wear my necklace everyday and even after I gave up on the knot, I would notice it and think, "I'm going to work on that knot when I get home/get some free time/this weekend." I never did - it would get put on the back burner and that's where it would stay. It bothered me that it was there, but clearly, I wasn't that invested in trying to un-knot it.
Today, I un-knotted my necklace. And to say that gave me sense of relief and accomplishment is an understatement. I fixed the knot.
And now, I can only move forward and be extra aware of what caused the knot in the first place.
Funny story, huh?
