And now....9 months of healing: The Aftermath

It's been a little over 9 months since the break-up. Some people have had babies during this time, some have started businesses, some have started new relationship.....I have learned to be myself again. It's a great feeling to wake up in the morning and to know who you are. It has taken me plenty of time to figure this out (and I'm sure I still have a lot to learn), but at this point in my life, I feel content. That's not to say that I'm not stressed out or I don't get crabby or irritated with things, but overall, when I lay down at night, I can fall asleep knowing that tomorrow is another day.

This is definitely a change from previous posts. I will tell you that I'm not fully healed and that I still hurt some days, but those days are fewer and farther between. I continue to have the wonderful support of my parents and even you guys who read my rants and raves (and even keep checking on a blog that isn't updated!!!) so I appreciate it. I have found out that I have wonderful friends who care very much about me.

So I have picked up most of the pieces and have tried to put them back together, but in the process have realized that maybe those pieces feel for a reason. Maybe there are new pieces that will form in order to make the new me. I can't be the same person I was the day of the break-up and therefore, those new pieces will form and I'll always hang on to the fallen pieces to remember where I came from and how I have reached this new point.

Time is the greatest healer...After my divorce I found that I could go deeper into my healing the more time that went by. I suppose sometimes it's not "fun" but it sure feels both great to wake-up and go to bed knowing more of who you are and what you like to do in your very own life...Your life holds more surprises than you can even imagine! Congratulations for having the courage to heal!

I just found your blog by clicking on some of the BlogherAds on my blog and I just want to send kudos your way. Your post on healing sounds very calming and I feel as though I can relate after a not so hot love/relationship 2007 for me.

I also enjoyed your shot from the road. Beautiful!
