So here’s the scoop, for those of you who’ve been wondering where I’ve disappeared to and why there haven’t been any new posts in the last couple of weeks: my husband and I are splitting up, and I’ve been busy as all hell looking for a new place to live and making all the arrangements that go with moving. Not to mention having to cope with the emotional turmoil that comes with the end of a marriage or long-term relationship, especially one that also involves small children.
Please bear with me while I deal with packing and moving over the next couple of weeks. Posts are likely to be sporadic until after I’ve settled into the new place and gotten myself somewhat organized. In the meantime, I am continuing to check emails and my social media feeds are still being updated (more or less) regularly so if you’re missing your daily dose of inspiration, then I invite you to “like” my Facebook page… lots of happy, inspirational and thought-provoking stuff over there 😉 . And by mid-June I should be resuming my regular posting schedule and getting things back on track around here.
I’ll have some thoughts to share about all of this once I’ve had a little bit of time to process it all and figure out where I’m going from here. It hasn’t been easy, obviously. But I know that I will get through this and that I will be stronger for it. And as I take these first steps forward into the unknown, I keep reminding myself that there is a reason for everything and a blessing within every upheaval. Sometimes, when it seems life spins out of control, we just need to remind ourselves to look for these hidden blessings, and they will be there. Sometimes when things are falling apart, it’s because something better is trying to fall into place. It’s what I have to believe.
