“your journey has molded you for your greater good and it was exactly what it needed to be. don’t think that you’ve lost time. it took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. and now is right on time.” – asha tyson
i can look back at all my mistakes and wish i could start over again, or i can appreciate all that i’ve done, and all that has shaped who i am today. honestly i have no regrets. learning has to involve trying, and trying simply means not being perfect, making mistakes, and learning from them.
life is a balance of accepting that which is out of our control, and making choices along the way that give us a life filled with intention, abundance and gratitude.
the relationships that i have created along the way have contributed to who i am today. i don’t have to end them. i can choose to maintain and nurture my relationships; if the relationship isn’t healthy for me, i can choose to transform the relationship to one that is healthier for me.
divorce doesn’t mean a relationship has to end, that the other half is no longer a part of my life. for me it means something completely different. divorce means a new beginning. instead of a relationship that dies, it’s a relationship that is born again in a different form.
i can continue to love the man who has and will continue to be a part of my life, but by admitting that i am no longer intimate with this man, i can see the distinction between being a happy person in an unhealthy relationship and being happily married.
i can be honest with myself and others and feel liberated to grow and learn with no mask, no label, just simply me, open to the lessons along the way.
