My life has changed, but at the core of it all I’m still me. I’m learning to navigate the world as a divorcee and a single mom now. Never in a million years did I foresee that this was they way life was going to be for me but you know what my life is NOT over!
I was fortunate to have been married for almost 10 years. I say fortunate because if I regretthose 10 years then I deny the things that have made me who I am today and the things that I have come to value. I had planned to be married forever but I have now come to realize that my definition of forever and his definition of forever was off by about 50 or so years. It has taken me a while but I’ve come to realize that it’s okay to not be married I mean millions of women around the world have been doing it for years so why can’t I?
I do however have some concerns I can’t lie. I have the typical can I afford to keep the house on my own, can I pay all the bills, and will I be able to provide for my little one by myself (those are my mom concerns). But I also so have the I’m single now am I going to find someone else to fall in love with and spend the rest of my life with or am I going to die alone concerns. (cough cough did I say that out loud). Entering the dating scene, a scene I wasn’t in long in the first place is daunting yet there is that element of excitement lurking in the the back of my mind.
I guess this is where I say only time will tell.
