Year End Wrap Up

I can honestly say I am ending the year in a better place than when it started.  It was a year of mainly solitude. More focus on myself, taking care of myself, finding enjoyment in what I’m doing. And when the end of the year came, it clicked - having love for myself in my heart. The illusive thing that has been missing for all of these years. The thing I thought impossible to have.  I don’t know how or why it just clicked, but things look so differently now.  It is still early days, still one day at a time. But the constant reminder that no matter what happens, I am ok, is a nicer undertone that I’ve ever had before.

Things with Chap are continuing well. Again, still early days, still one day at a time. It has been nice to have someone to share things with. It is hard having him so far away though.

So a few bits of exciting news. I accepted a job offer to be the head of marketing for a company!  This was my career goal since..well since before I could articulate it as a career goal. I am so excited for the new position and it feels amazing to have achieved that goal.

In the interim, I am taking 2 weeks off between my current job and the new one - and I’m going to visit Chap!

This year has been a lot of work and it’s nice to see some payoff as the year ends and the new year begins.

As for the blog...I don’t know if anyone is still out there. I started this blog so people in the same situation wouldn’t feel as isolated as I did - know there is someone else out there fighting similar battles and feeling the same way. But it may be time to wrap this up….


  1. You're an inspiring lady! I just found you today. My divorce is less than a year old, and your blog inspires me. I just want you to know, there is someone out here! Today has been another hard day for me, I was feeling so alone and lost.Thank you for being you!

  2. Thank you for such a warm and generous comment. I'm glad that maybe reading this helped you feel a little less alone in an experience that so many have in one way or another. Have a very happy and bright New Year!
