I have been a little up and down lately, but today, after a long conversation with a family member, I have decided that I'm no longer going to feel depressed about what I have lost. Instead I'm going to look toward the future and realize that I AM the QUEEN of my life. As the queen I must make the decisions that are best for me and my family, and like any queen, I need to rule with confidence and grace.
Gone are the days where I sit back and despair over how things didn't go the way I thought they should. Here are the days where I reflect and understand how I want them to go differently next time, and yes, there will be a next time. I will find the love that I deserve, and I will have the life that I always wanted to live.
I was not happy in the life I had, and now I find myself living a life that is depressed and sad, no more. I will no longer wallow in what I have lost and the sadness I feel when my children are not with me. Instead, I will look at this change in the wind as an opportunity to adjust my sails and find the happily ever after that I have always dreamed of. As any good Queen knows, you find your happiness in yourself and do not rely on another person to find it for you. I will look at all the good things that I have in life.
I will count my blessings. I will be grateful for what I do have instead of the things I do not have any longer. In life there will always be unexpected things that occur. Sometimes they are great and sometimes they are not. You only have control over how you choose to react to and handle those unexpected things. So today, I challenge everyone going through the fire of Divorce to decide, to decide to stand up tall, straighten your crown and live your life strong. The choice is yours to make. Be the queen you were always meant to be.
