When I started blogging 5 years ago, I never realized it was going to be a low cost form of therapy. This past weekend I decided to change my categories to coincide with my current life situation. The last four years has been filled with months and months of transition from married to separted to divorced. I guess some people really embrace being a single parent. For me it was imposed by the current relationship or lack there of I was living in so I stepped off the rollercoaster.
It is difficult to embrace a new life especially when there are exenuating financial implications associated with the prior life. It took almost 2 years for me to feel like I could breath again. I wish I could say there were no mistakes made along the way of this transition but this would be far from the truth. In order to recover for any transition you have to experience an emotional rollercoaster so you can truly appreciate an existence of well-being and peace.
Sometimes I feel like being a single parent has such a negative conotation. You have a new circle of friends and associates because not all social circles are conducive to your new lifestyle. It is definitely a discovery of true and genuine relationships. For those relationships that do not support your new lifestyle you must terminate the negative energy. I have learned not everyone wants to see you at peace and happy. This is sometimes a hard pill to swallow but life goes on and up!!!! I am no longer confined by what another person thinks about my choices and life decisions. Life transition gives a new found strength that is necessary to embrace every opportunity and blessing in my path.
I felt I needed to use a visual representation of my spirit. A butterfly is a creature of transition that blossoms into a beautiful carefree being. This is how I feel in this moment of evolving transition. I get to enjoy soaring through this journey with peace and well-being!
