I Feel Hopeless

Discouraging doesn’t even come close.

So many days, it just feels impossible.

There is so much to do. So much to rebuild.

And you just have nothing left.

No energy. No money. No time.

But those are just excuses talking.

The fear of letting go holding you back.

I know. I’ve been there.

The best part about a new beginning is that anything is possible.

Every ending holds the seed to a new beginning. Let it grow.

 

Failure means you’re learning. Starting over means you’re applying the lessons.

Happiness is divorce in the rearview mirror.

 

The words we say to others have influence. The words we say to ourselves have power.

How to love when you’re the next love.

 

Finding love again. It’s different, but different can be better.

And finally, my own story of love after divorce. A reflection on a journey. And what a helluva journey it’s been!
