The Holiday's are difficult in the face of divorce. I am going in to my second Holiday season without my ex husband. I am feeling much better this year than last. All around I am in a better place. I haven't cried in over three months, I don't spend the majority of my day worrying about what he's up to, I live for my girls and I and I enjoy what each day has to bring. I've also started to date. I've actually reconnected with my first love from high school. He's an amazing man who treats me different than my ex ever did (even in the beginning of our relationship). Life can and does get better. My thoughts will be with each of the amazing women I've gotten to "know" on this site over the Holiday's. Without you I would not be where I am today. I am so thankful. Sending each of you a virtual cheer from my martini glass! I came across this article about the things we might tell pre-divorce self if we could. It hit home with me, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
