Life has thrown me some major freaking curve balls lately, and I find myself at a point where I need to start completely over. One of the things I’m starting over is my blog. Previously published under a different name, I had to shut it down because my ex was using it against me in our divorce. It is horrible to have your voice stolen from you. The day I shut my old blog down, I felt like something inside of me died. I felt so defeated. But hey, that sh*t is not going to fly with me any more. My ex husband was a nasty cheating bastard. He stole my home, my security, and my feelings of self worth. Notice I am using the past tense, however; because today, I’m taking my voice back. Tomorrow, I’m going to reclaim my self worth, and one day, I hope to create a life for myself that I can one day be proud of.
It’s going to be a long journey, but I hope it will be one with lots of wonderful adventures. I’ve learned that it starts with being grateful for the many gifts I still have. Being able to write and give voice to my thoughts and feelings was always very meaningful to me. That was true no matter how frivolous the subject matter was. I just need to be heard and understood. It’s part of who I am. So here I am, back on the blogosphere. I hope you will join me as I re learn how to live life, love myself, and most important: I need to remember who I am.
I truly believe that you can’t keep a good girl down. And me? Well, I’m the best girl I know.
