At The Corner of Same Old Street And Change Blvd: Which Way?

Who among us hasn't been at this crossroad?  Same Old Street and Change Blvd. Some of us hang there for eons because we are afraid to move.  We know we gotta get off Same Old Street, but the uncertainty of Change Blvd is even scarier.  Divorce has a way of forcing you down a road and although you may think you are going in a different direction you are not. What you are doing is allowing circumstances to dictate where you go, how you move and who you are.

When you are tired of holding the pain and carrying the weight of divorce, perhaps the path will become clearer.  It did for me.  The more I got centered in myself and let go of rehashing my story, I could see my way down a different road.

Tell yourself your story one last time and then drop it and take a walk down another street. And if you don't like it, take another and another and another, until you are somewhere you want to be. Don't be aimless, be focused, give some real thought to who you want to be moving forward and then move in that direction.

Let whatever fears you hold, fuel you forward.

Take a page from Dr. Suess....

From "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."

Never Be Afraid To Eat Alone

I would add, that God is with me in those moments of "eating alone". Eating alone is powerful... forces you to meet your fear over wine and not flinch. The more you do it the more empowered you become. In your strengthened state you will once again offer invitation to dine with....  Yes. You. Will.  And in the back of your mind and in your heart you will no longer be afraid should things go south.... Remember you've eaten alone in triumph!

What Sort Of Life Do You Want?

In the midst of all the ups and downs of growing through your divorce, you may feel like your life is at a stand still.  You think once this is behind you will be free to live.

You are free now! You are the architect of your life. Regardless what is happening, regardless of what's got you feeling pressed upon. You still have to deal with your life.

Decide. What is your dream and plan how to move into it.

A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera - Say Something

Hauntingly beautiful song. Those of us going through a break-up may find this song resonates deeply.  I am not trying to wallow in sadness.  I find that music often gives voice to our feelings. It's a great song.
