many years ago, I started a second blog called Amid Life. It was a place where I could write freely and honestly about my then impending divorce and how it affected me and my children. Once my divorce was finalized I pretty much let it go, only to jot down a few thoughts here and there. I wanted to move on, away from the divorce that had caused so much pain. I wanted a fresh start.
Fast forward nearly 7 years and we’ve moved forward, we’ve healed and we’ve forgiven… But divorce does have lingering effects, and no matter how rosy things may seem, and how strong the sun does shine, there are still residual storms.
The children and I are in a good place right now. But I would be lying if I said we were not without our struggles. Of course, life always presents challenges, and we must figure out how to overcome those obstacles.
When I wrote regularly I had so much wonderful feedback. So much support. So many kind words. Such encouragement from those of you who were in my situation or who had loved ones who were. I wrote because I loved knowing I was not in this alone. I wrote knowing I would help someone who thought she was in it all alone. And then I stopped.
Just like that.
But I still want to write. I still want to share my thoughts when I have a moment. I invite you to follow along if you want to. But I won’t be writing here. I’ll be back over at Amid Life.
If you are interested in following along… watching my successes, and my failures. Watch as I try to overcome my shortcomings, and try to stagger to the top, I’d love some company along the way. Please feel free to reach out. I would love to hear your stories too!
