Forgive Yourself...

Have you forgiven yourself? As we get ready to walk into 2019, remember that it is time to forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for settling for less than you deserved. I carried so much hate in my heart for myself, by allowing myself to stay in such a toxic marriage. When I divorced, I first thought failure on my part, that I couldn't save it, but it wasn't meant to be saved. In a saving way, God was saving me. Now that first year was rough, but when my kids expressed how happy they were that we finally went our separate ways, I knew I was doing the right thing. And God hasn't failed me yet, in fact, my blessings have been better since then. My business is booming now and I love it! Traveling more, that's always a plus and then there's him...the one who makes my heart happy. So as you go into 2019, forgive yourself for accepting less than what you deserve and promise to never settle again! You are worth it.

You Lost Me...I Found Me...

This was probably my greatest accomplishment this year...walking away completely. Our divorce was officially finalized and I was allowed true happiness. No more insults, put downs, explaining to young kids why daddy was yelling and punching holes in the wall. No more feeling I wasn't good enough, no more sleepless nights...I can finally go into a new year at peace. Looking forward to 2017. I made it!

Just another night with the wasband and I

So yesterday was the first, so that is day the wasband really can't stand me since he has to give me a check. Since our divorce our words have become less and less friendly, which is sad, since we have known each other for over 17 years. So this was last nights convo... Wasband: Have my receipt ready, I am on my way He arrives, I am writing out his receipt Wasband: When are you changing your name? Me: I'm not, the kids are still in school, so it's easier to keep it. Don't worry, you can marry her and she can take your name, it's no big deal. Wasband:  You dropped something So I look down on the ground, turn around in circles, I see nothing. Me: I don't see anything, I don't have a clue what you could be talking about. Wasband: I'm going to back up and shine the lights on it. Walk by the basketball goal, look down. Me: There is nothing there. I can't see a thing. Then the light bulb in my head went on, I see what is going on now. Wasband

Marriage is Teamwork!

One spouse cannot build a marriage alone when the other spouse is committed to destroying it. Marriage works when both husband & wife work together as a team to build their marriage. Teammates do not compete against each other; they complement each other.   Teammates do not pull each other down; they encourage & support each other. Teammates do not fight in the opposites direction; they face the same direction & fight the same opponent together. Marriage teamwork is not about me; it's about us, we & ours. There is no greater example of teamwork than husband & wife. Hand in hand together, let every couple work together for the success of their marriage. Marriage is not a solo performance, it's a duet.
