One year ago today my world came crashing down on me....DDay! where am I a year later? Well I've been through such a rollercoaster. I decided to divorce and that was tough, I've been up and down, it still pains me if I allow myself to think about my past too much. I still cry... I still mourn what was once my 20 year marriage... one baby step at a time. I became best friends with the OW boyfriend... and actually I would consider him more than just a friend he's so understanding. But I'm guarded... and still healing... for those who want to know where youll be at in a year... it's still painful, just not as bad, youre still in mourning but I've accepted this is my new reality and need to make the best of a horrible situation. This week leading up to the one year mark has been super hard, emotional and overall heavy on my heart. But it's here now... TaDaaaa... I survived a year!!!! and that alone I am thankful for...

Congratulations. I have survived one year of separation and most recently one year anniversary of him moving out. Life is not easy but full of opportunities and peace of mind, emotionally, spiritually and financially.

Temporarily independent with the whole world at my feet.
