The Fourth of July is right around the corner. If you are a woman starting her life over after being left, then think of this year as your Independence Day. Freedom from trying to fulfill the needs of a partner who won’t really talk to you. Who stays out “with the guys” til all hours of the night. And then sleeps on the couch, so as “not to wake you.” If that not-so-fun chapter of your life is over, then congratulations! Throw yourself a parade for no longer being the woman who puts up with that behavior and does nothing. Shoot off some fireworks in honor of your new-found freedom. This is your life! The parade is NOT passing you by! So look up into the sky as those fireworks go off and thank yourself for standing firm for the right to your own happiness. Think of what symbols you would put on your own flag and fly it in your imagination. You are extraordinary and no longer in the cage of the Unhappy Marriage. No matter how it ended, YOU found the courage to swing the door of that cage open and fly out. Build your own float and start down your parade route. And congratulate yourself on Your Independence Day!
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!
