    Irony, I found your blog, noticed the muddy pictures. Wondered what race you ran. Today at the gym was a poster for a Muddogrun. Then when I got home, in my e-mail account was a notice for the same thing. A 5K , not far from me. It’s on what would of been my older brothers 52nd birthday. I will be there to run for me and him. Run away from the pain!

  3. I couldn’t agree more. When I was divorcing, I kept looking for my definition of “a happy ending” — someone who had gotten to the other side of it all and made a new life with a new version of happiness. Like you, I was discouraged by the fact that most people seemed to stop writing when their pain diminished. I wanted to share their happiness and their ups and downs in their new lives. I feel like part of the reason I keep writing is to help other women I see that life does go on — up and down, but definitely on — and that a new normal really is possible. 🙂

    • I like that – “up and down, but definitely on.” That is a great way to put it and the part that is so important to share. It is certainly possible to be happy again, but it is important to know that there is no “happily ever after” without some bumps in the road. But the bumps make the journey all the more interesting:) Thank you for sharing your ups and downs as you move on.
