I'm not about to get ashamed. Despite the fact that the majority of marriages end, we don't ever talk about it. I refuse to accept this as part of my identity. It's something that happened that was unpleasant but is over.
So moving on, it's time to recalibrate. Heal. Focus on me and what I want. We all get so caught up in setting resolutions at the beginning of the year. How about resolutions for the beginning of a new me. I've thought long and hard about what I'm going to need to do to be happy move forward, and here are the things I want to change about me and my life.
1. Lose the divorce weight. I haven't weighed myself for months but I know I wouldn't be happy with the results. I want to go back to Weight Watchers and drop the 20ish pounds I packed on through this process.
2. Appreciate me. Even at my thinnest, I didn't like the way I look. At 30, I'm sick of being that person.
3. Be closer with my family. I now live within miles of both my sisters. My mom always told us that once they're gone, we're all each other has. They've helped me immensely through this unimaginably rough period and I want to ensure that continues.

4. Blog more. Through the darkest days of this I had nothing to write. My life was one big churn of change and decisions, but nothing I wanted to share. I'm re-emerging and ready to share again.
