The feeling that you get when you leave someone you know is not right for you is different for everyone. For me it was liberating. Everything that happens from that moment on is a chance to redefine who you are and what you are. In fact every moment irrespective of your past is a new moment to redefine and find out who you are.
But the process of redefining who you are takes time. It takes time to let go of the destructive and negative thoughts and images that were in place for so long. It takes time to see what truly was right and what was wrong. Every moment is an opportunity to learn.
I would like to take a moment to explain why I’m starting this New Year feeling extremely grateful.
Last year for me was enormous. In fact the last 4 years have created such an evolution that I no longer recognize who I was back then. I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful for a lot of things actually. Let me explain:
4 years ago my daughter died and the year that followed was the worst year of my life.
3 years ago I realized that strength is part of who we all are and events help you to come face to face with it and embrace it.
2 years ago my son was born. His unquestionable lack of want and need to sleep at night, his dairy intolerance and his presence in my life caused some significant snowballs to roll.
9 months ago my marriage ended to a man whom I thought I knew but realized I didn’t.
It’s been very hard work.
