In 2014, after being together with my husband for more than 15 years he decided he wanted a divorce.
I did not want a divorce, but in the state of Virginia, I was powerless to stop him.
I did what I could to slow the process (hoping he’d eventually come to his senses), but he doggedly proceeded down the path of dissolving our marriage as fast as the law allowed.
While remaining faithful to the vows we’d made to each other and doing everything I could to make sure he knew he was welcome to rejoin our life together at any time, I did not stop living my life.
Although there was nothing I wanted to do more than curl up in a ball and cry until I shriveled up and died, at just 35, I had a hunch that I still had a lot of life left ahead of me.
But, how was I going to go on?
I was ALONE, and I couldn’t think of anything worse than facing the world as a Single person.
It wasn’t easy, but I decided that instead of allowing my life to be diminished by my Suddenly Single status, I would reframe it as an opportunity to embark on a grand new adventure.
One in which I’d test my own mettle, slay every one of my inner dragons (like fear of ballroom dancing), and find a way to feel more fully alive than ever before (or die trying).
Suddenly Single, I decided I was not going to let my lack of a partner cause me to live a life that felt like I was doing less than I am capable of.
I would not let fear hold me down. Yes, I was afraid (many, MANY times), but I would not let it hold me back from living a full life.
