Feeling Happy

Saturday, February 09, 2013

I don't blog very often, but I think I should really blog more frequently. It occurred to me today that I feel happy. In fact, so happy that it's bubbling up inside me. I didn't expect to feel this way, so it came as a total surprise. My separation is so new that I expected to be hurting for some time. It has shocked me that I don't often feel that way. It has shocked me to find that I am happier living without my husband. That has made it so very easy to stay friends with him. I still have the odd twinge, but I am genuinely happy.

I credit Spark People for my attitude. All of my wonderful Spark friends who have supported me, comforted me when I needed it, kicked my ass when I needed it and inspired me to think differently and more positively than I ever have before. I am so very grateful to all of you! I can honestly say that the positivity is spreading to my work life and to my friends outside of Spark People, too. I thank my best friends for putting me on to Spark People. They had joined long before me and had been singing its praises. I guess I wasn't ready when they first told me.

When I was ready, I was surprised again at how warm, welcoming and supportive people are here. Even though we've never met in real life, I feel so connected to my Spark Friends. I am concerned when they have problems, I am happy when they post about an accomplishment, so matter how small it may seem.

Thank you, Spark People and Spark Friends. In a lot of ways, you've pulled me away from the precipice of the dark abyss I could have gone toward. I'm a better person for it.
