In 2008, I made the decision to separate from my husband. I knew that in order for me to be HAPPY, HAVE PEACE IN MY LIFE AND LIVE A BETTER ME, I had to separate myself from him. Our divorce became final October of 2009. The feeling was bittersweet. I thought I would jump for joy, run around my house naked, or have a WILD PARTY FOR BEING FREE, but it was not like that at all. The feeling I felt was one of loss, failure and defeat. I never dreamed I would become a statistic. I just knew that I would be married until the end but things did not work out as planned. Somewhere, our lives took two different roads. I went one way and he another. Now, I am at a place in my life that I am looking and opening my heart up for love. I miss the friendship, the pillow talk and just having that special someone to call when your day is good, bad or just plain out FAB!!! As I get used to the dating scene, I know that I am a bit rusty. Dating for me, is not something I enjoy. I hate having to give my time to non-deserving men when I could be at home reading a good book or just spending time with my family. But, I do know that in order to meet that special someone I will have to date a few frogs. So, now like many other single women, I have found myself reading many books to help me with the dating game. Steve Harvey wrote a sequel to his first book: Straight Talk, No Chaser and I must admit, I read the book in about 2 hours. I really enjoyed it. It shocked me a little because his first book: Think Like a Man, Act Like A Lady, didn't grab me as much as the sequel. The book opened my eyes to many different things and some things I knew but decided to ignore because, HELL, WE ALL THINK AT TIMES THAT WE CAN CHANGE HIM... NOT!!! So, as I travel down this road looking for love, I open my heart and mind to the possibilities... As I stood outside yesterday in the snow, I opened my arms and welcomed whatever was to come. I know one day, I will have my KING, but until then, I guess I better keep a good tube of lipgloss!
A MUST READ!!!!
Opening my heart and mind to all the possibilities of LOVE!!!
Not to take a detour too much from my Words of Wisdom Monday, a statement from me to YOU!!!
