To love and be loved is a wonderful thing and I am thankful to have experienced the many beautiful joys marriage can add to one’s life. I don’t regret my choice to get married for one second, and I don’t regret getting divorced either.
If there is one thing in life I am good at it is adapting to change and welcoming it with open arms, and this change is no different. Though the past year has been one of the most challenging it has also been the best year of my life. I am lucky to have the family and friends that I do who have been with me through it all, and I know I am so loved.
Though some people may not understand how or why, I truly wish nothing but happiness, health, and great success in life to my ex. To this day we remain friends and I feel pretty fortunate to be able to say that and mean it.
I still believe in love. I have always been, and will always be a bit of a romantic at heart. I promised myself when the decision was finally made to end my 10-year relationship that I would allow myself to feel all the feelings. The highest highs and the lowest lows, and I can safely say I’ve experienced both this past year. However, it has not for one second broken my spirit. I live even more intentionally and passionately than I ever have. If I have learned one thing about myself throughout this whole process it is that I love big and always will without hesitation. There is always room in my life for love.
