Today Is My 4th Wedding Anniversary

Four years ago I thought I married the man of my dreams.

Now I know that I didn't.

But instead of focusing today on what I lost, I am focusing on what I have found.

I have found my strength again. I know now that I won't ever be with someone who doesn't love all of me.

I have found someone who despite our distance texts me good night and good morning, wishes me a good day, sets his alarm to wish me luck on a meaningless 5k race, who memorizes my birthday without me ever telling it to him... Someone who calls to tell me that I am on his mind. That he can't wait to see me. Who makes me smile bigger and laugh harder than anyone ever has.

So today I acknowledge the loss of one life and am happily moving forward as I am StartingOver@28.

PS - dear judge, please don't delay the divorce any longer. please set the court date on monday. I just want it over. thanks.


  1. This is a great post. I'm glad you're using this as another reason to look ahead. You're better off now

  2. I love this post. You have grown so much in such a short time. Keep being happy, you deserve it!

  3. You are amazing. And if that judge delays it again? I will totally shank him for you.
