But, I am here and back with the second installment to the series. This post is one that I am particularly excited to write because it is all about me breaking out of the trap I had been caught up in for years. The trap being the suffocating marriage I had found myself in.
Perhaps the most terrifying aspect of my separation and divorce experience was the independence I had gained over night after moving out. But what a relief and breath of fresh air! Freedom in so many forms!

Sometimes I didn't have plans and I would take a bath and read a book and try not to feel sorry for myself that I was all alone. (Don't get me wrong, I did have a couple pity parties from time to time but found them to be therapeutic and relieving to let out negative energy.) I found that focusing on how wonderful it was that I was strong and resilient and had the tenacity to be on my own, gave me hope for the great future I had ahead of me. Over time the loneliness wore off and I relished in my alone time. I set goals for myself and accomplished them. I went back to school to continue to challenge myself and to keep me from being too bored.
Due to a recommendation from my friend, Tricia, I watched the Secret and really began to look forward to my future instead of dwelling on my past and how horrible the last few years had been. I began focusing on being grateful for my life and the challenges I had overcome and the bright future that I had ahead of me. The Secret played a part in changing my life. I will share a bit more about this in a future post.
Have you seen The Secret?
