Giving people your blog link/name has it's downsides sometimes (hi Catamaran batch! I love you!).
Like when you want to share projects that you're working on but can't because a certain sir also reads (hi Mr. A!)
and when you want to really vent about things but can't because it'll be used against you I'm sure. (Hi MIL!)
Really that had no relevance in what I am actually going to post about but I thought you should know that sometimes sharing is not always caring.
Today is the last day of January which means it's the last day of the "Beginnings" theme.
BlogHer had a really good prompt this afternoon that I wanted to end on.
"Talk about an ending that made you happy."
Well okay BlogHer...if you insist.
When I announced my divorce, it was already decided months before then that that was in fact what would be happening. It has probably been the best decision that I have made in the past 5 years. When you think of divorce you don't always associate it with happiness. In fact that's probably the farthest thing from your mind. For me it was a scary decision & I contemplated it for almost a year. A year. When I finally made my decision, I was at peace with it. I was almost relieved to get it off of my chest. I sat down and told him firmly again that this is what I want and what I think would be best. We then finally came to an agreement that it probably was for the best.
It turned out that he was mainly scared of "change" and "the unknown".
and then, things started coming out and were confirmed.
that he cheated.
Which didn't upset me. I wasn't angry. I wasn't sad about it. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I kind of already knew. It just solidified my other reasoning's.
So really it was the best decision.
I couldn't be happier with things.
As of right now, like I said yesterday, the only thing we are fighting about is the car clicker & garage door opener.
I mean really? This could be so much worse than it is.
I'm also ecstatic to have moved on and to be truly happy.
I'm also happy that I get to share this with people who are going through the same thing.
You have no idea what it means to me to receive some of the emails that I do on a daily basis concerning the divorce. The fact that this little ol' blog of mine reaches to people about such a topic is mind blowing and it just makes me so grateful for the situation that I've been handed.
Don't get me wrong though, things are not always rainbows and unicorns. I definitely have my down days, just like any normal person would. But luckily the good days outweigh the bad.
With that said.
Is it April yet?
