It’s official! My long awaited divorce is final! I know it’s probably not politically correct to appear jubilant after a divorce but my celebratory mood is motivated by the knowledge that I have undoubtedly started a new chapter in my life.
The reality of moving away from something that was apparently not working in any way, shape, or form presents opportunities for unfettered life planning. The sky is the limit!
Although you may be able to mentally put a period at the end of a situation, until you can actually declare its existence in a historical sense, there is always the thought in your mind that Murphy’s Law will delay it from happening.
But with the love of the special one’s around you and an optimistic outlook on life, no matter how long it may take for your opportunity to close one chapter and plunge into the next, time can pass quickly and make the new life you’ve come into even more precious than you may have ever realized before.
So I now look at the document signed and sealed by the courts and see life! Not the 15 years gone but the many, many new ones ahead.
