this is the last day of our...

Monday, January 12, 2009

As I get back into the spark lifestyle, I find music and lyrics are frequent associations with events of my life. Today as I ate breakfast and reviewed my weekend strengths and pitfalls, I found myself thinking of Sinead Oconner's song about divorce.

I can remember many declarations of last(as in "that's the last...), and I don't necessarily like that thread of thought. Still it helps to look at last in the context of an "era" and not a specific behavior (in case that behavior recurs, I don't want to spin out of whoops-control).

So this is the last day of my engagement with a way of thinking about myself. I am divorcing that part of me, and tonight, I sign the papers. It will be done, and finally that part of my life is over.

    Interesting concept. I like this idea. As WILLBOYWONDER wrote, divorce is not easy. This is doable. Happens everyday. So we say good bye to this part of our lives that we are divorcing and move on to new opportunities. Intriguing thought.

    I am the same way with music. I listen to it and can easily relate to it, either for myself or for a friend or family member.

    You have a great attitude. We all need to divorce unhealthy parts of ourselves. That's hard to do....but divorce is not easy. Let us all challenge ourselves, stretch ourselves. I always believe that we will never change until we start doing things that make us uncomfortable.

    Good luck.....Congratulations on the divorce!

    It is like all those sayings like "You can't sail to a new port without pulling up anchor, etc." Great. Adventure is ahead. emoticon
