I didn't think i'd still be here. I thought by now i'd have a different life. A NEW life. Not sure exactly what that would look like but definitely less..... lonely. The judgment was finalized (thank GOD) a little over two years ago, which was the "official" beginning of the divorce. That took a good chunk of my life away.
So what have i been up to, mostly? Well work takes up most of my week, with 9-hour work days. After work i go to the gym 3 times a week, and during the weekends, i pack-up the minions and go to OC. So the only really "free" time i've had was on a few weeknights. I think the hardest part has been that not a whole lot happens on weeknights, as most people leave socializing to the weekends. There are events every now and then, sure. But it's also a mindset thing. You've got to be READY to go out and live life again.
This summer i have started doing that. I've been spending more time in the beach cities, socializing, and meeting people. It's been quite exciting and invigorating! To be alive and one with the community is a great feeling. I look forward to meeting more people, and can say that i am open to finding someone special out there. Someone to share my life with. My hopes, my dreams, my future, and yes, my kids.
