Life brings changes everyday. It brings its ups, and its downs. Right now I am at a particular low point. My marriage has fallen apart. I guess I knew it was coming but tried to ignore the signs. I tried to believe that after 18 years of being with each other that it should count for something. I guess I was wrong. So I now find myself doing a lot of soul searching. Plans that were made now have to be changed and I have to take a different fork in the road. A detour if you will. My sister Lynn forwarded me an email from Scrap Girls News and told me to look at a certain portion of it. It had a little story of a puppy named Bean. This was on Saturday before my life fell apart. I read it yesterday and it had a life lesson that struck me as very fitting.
The life lesson? It is sometimes the case that good things come to an end and other good things have a beginning and, at times, the two good things simply cannot coexist and so one must let go of the first to gain the second.
Hence, I have had to say goodbye to the past, the husband who was my rock, who was the stable influence in my life, who taught me to be responsible and say hello to the future me. Of finding me again. I had lost a big part of myself during my marriage. I neglected me. So in order to find me, I have to let go of the past. I will be fine…I am strong. I am looking forward to getting to know me…Here’s to a “New Beginning” and the good things to come.
