I’ve been in California working. Tonight this sky gave me this goodbye. I sat there in my ultimate element. The water. The colors. The smell of salty air. The waves singing their lyrics to me.
I realized how happy I am in this very day, this very moment, this life.
I could have taken a different direction after divorce, I could have succumb to sadness...to bitterness...
I would be wrong to say I didn’t for a little while.
But tonight it struck me again... just how grateful I am.
Since I’ve been here I’ve told a few people of this project. All of them have said something along the lines of
“wow, how do you do that?”
I simply said because the alternative creates more difficulties.
It has been said here before, but to get to a peaceful place after divorce, with not only my my ex husband but his wife Niki, it has allowed me to set down the heavy burden of the pain that once was. You don’t realize how exhausting it truly is, until you fully let it go. While it’s been a work in progress, I have and it’s been a lot easier not to carry.
Tonight I sat there in gratitude for the moments I did the work, we’ve done the work, and we continue to do the work. To redefine and to seek more hope and healing. For not only us, but to share with you.
Headed home to my babes....Happy hearted.
Just a simple winter sunset.
Though, it was incredibly freezing when I took this photo and def regret not bringing clothes that would allow access to my phone.
