About 3 months after the D was final, my mom and I went to Israel. On our trip to the Wailing Wall, my prayer was a request for peace within myself.

Last weekend, I was on a girl trip. We went to Washington, D.C., and as we were walking around the monuments I realized that I am so happy with my life. I have achieved internal peace with my life.

It was gradual and kind of snuck up on me in so many ways. I'm so thankful for this second chance that I've been given. That dreaded word: time.

What an inspiration!

BS, age 53, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years and 20 together. Now I am living alone in the beautiful rural property that was once the dream retreat with X. It's taking a long time to create new dreams but despite some struggles I am mostly happy.
