Tomorrow marks one year since we went to court and signed the divorce papers.
All I can say is I'm still very RELIEVED !There's nothing I miss about my old life.
It's taken awhile to settle into my new life but I continue working on it.
I've started back into the workforce and trying to develope a retirement plan sucks.
I'm not dating and doubtful if I will anytime soon.
I'm OK and that is good enough.

Oh gma, I am probably going to sign my papers in October.

I am so happy to hear that you are doing well after all that has past.
A shining example for us all.
Keep on that momentum!

What a wonderful, bright future you have ahead of you!!!

I'm right there with ya, gma! Kudos to EVERY one of us here that takes the knife to the stomach, forges a new and better life, and emerges stronger for the experience.

Collectively and individually, we ROCK here at SI!!

Kudos to EVERY one of us here that takes the knife to the stomach, forges a new and better life, and emerges stronger for the experience.
Our lives are forever changed by the choices of someone we trusted and loved. We can choose to have a permanent self pity party or take our lives back.

Building a new life is a slow struggle for me but so thankful I have the opportunity to reach my goal of being happy and content with life again. I look back a year ago and I have made some progress but not near to where I want to end up.

I have a dream of where I want to be in three years and I'm on the right path to get there. I do wish it would happen quicker but the wait and hard work will pay off when I look up out my front door and see the beautiful mountains in the future.

I've learned to be patient with myself and count the blessings I do have now. How fast those blessings can be taken away.

Also I have found that there is more than one path to being happy with myself and life. My post divorce path isn't smooth it has many bumps, pits, and steep hills but I will get where I'm suppose to be.

I have so much love in me (I thought I wasn't capable of love again) and hope someone's heart will open up to be able to accept it. Only the future knows if that will happen, for now I'm OK.
Hugs to all of us going through, recovering, and starting over.

I've become hyper-aware of this in the last five years and I do believe it enhances our appreciation of what we do have now.
