If you can spiral down you can spiral up. I know that’s not a common phrase, but I want you to think about it. You all understand the spiraling down part. The endless abyss we fell into the day we were left. The loveless hole we thought we would live in forever. Thank God that was just a depressing illusion. It takes some time to clear that illusion out of our heads and get back to ground level.
But we do eventually. Because we must.
After the papers are signed and his things are moved out, or our things reside in a new space, we sometimes sit there thinking, “This is it.” I’m a ground-level girl.
When I was with my Ex decades ago, life was flowers and stars. I’m telling you, the ground I stepped on seemed to be filled with flowers. And the stars above, oh how we’d gaze at them and plan our future together. But I don’t have to tell you all of that. And about how it all unraveled. That is not the point of this.
We are now in a new place. And, hopefully, we know we all deserve more than ground level. We deserve the beauty that is above us too. Literally and figuratively. The skies and the stars and our future life. Interestingly, do you know that the center of a sunflower is a spiral? And from that beautiful spiral come the seeds that bring more flowers. Sunflowers always turn their faces to the sun. That’s how they grow.
No two plants are alike. No two stars are alike. And your life is your own now. And it doesn’t have to be anything at all like your old life. You are now your flower, your star. Your flower to nurture. Your future life to gaze at. Up, up into the Optimistic Atmosphere that is the air you now breathe. Because he left you. What a gift.
From heartache to heart song. This is your journey now.
