Surviving the Holidays

Holidays can be hard for individuals currently going through a divorce or for individuals who have divorced and this is their first holiday without their ex-spouse.  To prepare myself I attended a DivorceCare group "Surviving the Holidays" with a friend.  I do think they provided some helpful information.  As I sat around the table looking at others there I realized that I was not as sad or as worried about the holidays.  I thought to myself what is wrong with me.  Then it dawned on me that my soon to be ex-husband was never really in to the holidays like I was, tha...more

Being Single is Like Remembering How to Ride a Bike

Where Did My Independence Go?

When did I lose my independence? At what point in my marriage did I change and lose myself? When did I become afraid of doing things on my own?  These are all questions that I have asked myself since I filed for divorce and I honestly do not have the answers.I started thinking about this when I went to visit a good friend and I flew there on my own.  On the way to the airport, I started having a small panic attack about flying on my own.  I thought to myself, "This is ridiculous, you have been flying alone since you were five!" Guess what I survived!  ...more

Divorce Sucks!

Divorce Sucks!  I think that the title pretty much says it all.  Many of you have probably been here before.  Mine has only just begun.  I realized that our marriage was broken and there was just no fixing it.  I didn't want to give up, I felt like I tried and I tried, including marriage counseling.  I never thought I would be the one getting a divorce, but I don't think any of us think that as we are walking down the aisle to the the alter. ...more

It's Hard to Balance Work and Life

I think the title says it all.  It is hard to balance work and life!  At least I have a difficult time doing this.  Maybe others are better at it than I am.  I always wonder how people get everything done around the house, work and still go out and play.  What have they figured out that I have not?...more

Getting Back to Life & Adventures

It is time to stop feeling sorry for myself and over thinking what it is that I want to do with my life.  I need to stop being afraid of life and start living it again.  I took time off of work so that I could relax, get things together around the house and lose weight.  Not to sit here and worry about life and money.  And man do I worry.  I worry about everything and cannot let myself just enjoy this time....more
