We've got our happy faces on and we are ready to start our new lives.
Of course, I can't pretend that I am fully OVER what has happened, or even that every day is positive. The truth is that this is a work in progress. My heart will heal, but not overnight. Our lives will be beautiful, but I'm still mourning what I thought I had. BUT I realize that happiness and moving forward is a choice, and that is what I choose.
This past week has been full of ups and downs; I go through all the stages of loss (depression, anger, acceptance) over and over and back again. This break up isn't like the others; I can't just avoid seeing him until I'm fully over it. I can't put a time frame on my healing. But I will say that, for the most part, I've chosen to stay positive and work toward moving on. Every day gets better and better.
I have so much to share about this process, and hope I one day will, but for now ill keep it short and sweet. While I have been feeling good about our future and my new journey as a single mom, it's still emotionally exhausting to delve into. I just wanted to pop in here and say that my period of silence and mourning is (hopefully) at an end and I look forward to posting. I STILL have tons of posts I'm dying to write (like about homemade kombucha) as well as sharing a little of my soul from this experience.
Tell everyone you love that you love them. Hold your babies tight. Kiss yor doggy's nose. Cherish every moment. Choose happiness.
