starting over

Let’s get real about what it means to fully embody the meme fantasy of running away to start a new life from scratch.

You wake up one day. You look at your business, you look at your life and you wonder, "is that all there is?" You secretly wonder, "is it finally time for me to declare what I really want?" I would venture to say that a majority of people feel this way at one time or another. They secretly yearn for something more or better or different.

“Divorce is a journey. Pack accordingly.” – Sara Woodard-Ortiz, The HeartFull Journey Like many divorced women before me
It was time to take care of myself. And I kept that promise.
And I can't believe it's been almost 6 years since I embarked on this journey. I am a different woman today. I know that
I look back on the last four years and I am amazed at all I have accomplished. Not because they were impossible feats, but because they were life events I never felt worth enough of achieving.

Before I could even consider trusting another person, I had to rebuild my belief in my own judgement. It's still a daily practice, trusting that I can and will choose wisely.
We meet someone we are completely infatuated with, we spend each waking moment with them, we see them naked, we see them drunk, you fight and then you make up. Then out of nowhere like a car that runs out of gasoline on the side of the road, it stops. It almost seems inevitable.
Who am I now? That's still an open question for me, and I'm not someone who's especially comfortable with ambiguity. If this is a beginning, rather than an end, what is it that's beginning? And if other people no longer look at me and see the president, who do they see?
My friends back in New York often make remarks about how different I am now. I am different now, I needed to change. They mention how much happier I seem since I made my move, built a family, and began finding success in my dream career. I am happier, I deserve to be.

It started out as a real-life fairy tale. Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. They stare at each other from across a crowded room and knew with all certainty they were "the one." With their hearts beating heavily, they fall in love at first sight, and ride off into the sunset together. Well, almost.
