As I sit here in this moment, I feel truly grateful for this experience. I believe that without it, I would not become who I am meant to be. I’m not quite sure who that person is yet, but the fact that I have an opportunity to look within myself and have the willingness to self-reflect and the longing to self-love is the greatest gift life is giving me at the moment.
I admit that over these past few years, I have allowed myself to fall into a “slump,” and with becoming a mother and the domineering nature of my ex husband, I have lost myself. In fact, I’m not quite sure I ever truly even knew myself. Maybe now, I am a different self or on my way to becoming a newer, more improved self. In any case, without this experience, I would never even be pondering these things.
It’s such an amazing feeling to be at peace and accepting of my present life. Liberating, to say the least. It leaves my heart open for so much love, patience, understanding, non-judgement, compassion, and curiosity to others and the world around me.
