You have been living like a bird trapped in a cage for so long now. The Cage of the Unhappy Relationship. The one you thought you could not escape from. And then you got left. Though that hurt like hell, it did one very important thing. It opened the door of the unhappy house you lived in. All you have to do is walk out that door and start living. You need to keep busy to not wallow. But not in the day-to-day breakup details busy. Those will go on until they are done, but they are NOT your life now. You need to forge ahead. What do you want to do now that no one is keeping you down? Is it a cooking class you always wanted to take? Is it a trip to see an old friend? A city you’ve always wanted to visit? Go. Go do these things. They will feed your soul. You will meet cool people. You will figure stuff out when you are not trapped in your old way of being. Even if it’s only for a weekend. It’s more than you’ve given yourself for a long, long, time, right? So try it. See what shakes out. Your goal here is to be happy. Old patterns don’t lead to happy. You can rearrange the canned goods in your kitchen some other time. (Or never) Don’t just take a walk, take a trip. Even if you just drive to a river and stare at it. Or fly halfway round the world on a whim without over thinking it. Do whatever you want to do but DO SOMETHING for you. Now. Today. As you read this. Start thinking. Start planning. Start SMILING. Spread your wings and fly, girl, or let a plane do it. But go. Get a new perspective. Things cannot look up if you keep looking down, or worse, looking back. You know this. Happy Travels.
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
