A lot of really negative things have happened over the last year. A lot of hurt, a lot of pain, a lot of tears. Just a lot. I'm sure it's no surprise to learn that I'm going through a divorce. It's been exhausting, it's been mind numbing, and at times, it's been completely overwhelming. Some days I just tread water as to not drown. I don't feel the need or the desire to discuss the details, nor is it really necessary. But so many of you still, even now, check on me. You send me thoughtful emails and private messages asking how I am and if things are ok. You ask about my children and you just wanna say hi. I don't always respond, but trust me, they mean a lot. Really.
But what I'm trying to focus on throughout all the ugly negativity, are the positives. I'm healthy, my kids are healthy and most days I am happy and content. I know I'll make it. I just know.
So, here starts a new chapter in my life. I'll learn, I'll grow, and I'll love.
I have to smile when I type that because even though it's been a painful year, I've met an amazing person whom I can honestly say I love. He's been my sunshine throughout my darkness and I can't wait to tell the world about him. Who knew my path would lead and merge with his.
You just never know where you're path will lead.
Thank you, honestly, for your continued support and friendship.
