A couple weeks ago, my divorce was finally signed into judgement. While I'm still dealing with a little of the fallout (including an atrocious lawyer... or is that redundant?) I am, for the most part, free of one of the worst situations I've ever been caught up in. Many things in my life changed over the past year since I finally made the decision to leave, and while at first those changes seemed completely awful in every way, I have learned that every change really DOES happen for a reason. My world is a totally different place than it was a year ago - totally different from anything I even imagined, to be honest - but it is also an amazing place for the first time in a very, very long time.
It's appropriate that this week's Wednesday Word is freedom, because while the judgement was entered almost a month ago, it wasn't until the past couple days that I finally felt like I was actually free. Maybe it's the changing weather, or realizing I have the power to stand up for myself and make my life better, or settling more and more into my new career path... Whatever it is, this week I have been walking on air, feeling powerful and confident and ready to keep moving forward. And that feeling makes me incredibly happy.
Could have been Genie being set free, went with Rescuers instead. Deal.
