It's a phrase we hear a lot....from status updates on Facebook to logos on T-shirts, but what does it really mean?
But it is six years later and so much has changed - for the better. In fact, I had a weird but oddly realistic dream a few nights ago in which my husband came back from the dead and experienced some kind of transformation in front of me (complete with light and the voice of a God-like persona) in which he became his "old" self...the one I thought I knew before I found out about all the secrets. In the dream he wanted me back and wanted to reclaim his old life. I used to hope for a moment like this during my divorce, knowing that it was impossible. But when this moment appeared in my dream, my dream-self coped with it by saying no, I like my life the way it is. Upon waking, I realized just how far I have come.
I know many of you reading this blog are dealing with various issues in your lives. You may have just discovered secrets that have broken your marriage apart or you may be in the throes of a divorce. I hope that you can see from my story that it IS a journey. It is an unexpected journey that includes a lot of tears and hard work. Unfortunately it is not all happy endings and in no way do I mean that I do not still have struggles (and I have blog posts to prove it!), but lives can be re-created and sometimes where you find yourself, although unexpected, is pretty darn good.
