“And with change, there is grief for what has been lost, but also opportunity and the choice of how to see it. Choose wonderful.” – Suzanne McMinn
Now that you are a few steps into your new life, perhaps it is time to begin to think about what this change, being left, can mean to your New Life. At first, of course, there is grief over what you think you have lost. Seemingly everything. What is your life now? You are alone and a woman of “a certain age.” But as this quote tells us, there is another side to this situation. A wonderful side. And you have the amazing opportunity to choose Wonderful. You are not alone. You. Are. Free. You were “left” but what really is it that you are clinging to when you think of it this way? If this is a fresh wound, you definitely cannot see the rainbow through the clouds right now. And I’m not preaching some “constant sunny day” scenario. But he’s gone now. That dark cloud that you thought you had to cling to. The Man Who Blocked Your Sun. How in God’s name could you ever have grown there? In that atmosphere of lies and deceit? As time goes on, as it has for some of us, we realize we are One Lucky Woman. Even if some days are grey, it is not because we are longing for the Loveless Life we had. It is just the fear of the unknown. But the unknown does not have to be scary any more. Because YOU ARE IN CHARGE NOW. You get to feel whatever way you want to feel. So choose wonderful.
