Officially Divorced

I am now officially and completely divorced!  All of the loose ends have been tied up, and I am now free to live my life.  Well, I’m practically broke (liquid assets anyway), but at least I can move on.

I went down to the local library for a change of scenery today.  The temperature got up to 0°F, so I figured that was warm enough to go out.  While working on a client project, I found myself in one of my usual states on anxiety about trying to get the thing done as quickly as I could so I could rush off to do something else, because there must be something else I should be doing, right?

That’s when I caught myself.  I don’t have to rush.  I don’t have to worry about trying to do more, be more, and provide more.  I can slow down.  I can finally start to relax and not live in a continuous state of worry.

It’s an amazing feeling, the realization that I’m free to start living my life, the way I want, where, and with whom I want.  I’m grateful for the opportunity to take another stab at life, a bit wiser this time.

Woo hoo, it’s over!
