The Truth Comes Out

Monday, July 02, 2012

So I'm sure most people didn't read my private posting but I have finally arrived at the point where I can make it public and not private. My husband and I have separated. After 8 years of being together and 2 wonderful kids we have decided to go our separate ways. This has been a big part of my emotional eating lately. I know I have the strength to take care of 2 kids on my own and continue to grow my business but it is TERRIFYING!!! LOL! I mean I've never really lived alone (I know I'm not alone with 2 kids but I'm the only adult). It's left up to me (and my great support system!) to make sure these kids are taken care of and safe. But on the other hand I have not had as much peace in the last several years then I have in the last 2 days. I feel excited about the future and the hard work that I'm putting into my business. I am scared and excited at the same time and I'm looking forward to the future. I know there is a rough road ahead. But I finally feel as if I'm getting back on track with my WW! I am feeling so little stress right now (even though my day job makes me want to drink at times!) I finally feel like I can look forward to going home after work, and that's an awesome feeling!

    I was in your shoes about 4 years ago with 4 kids. It's scary and stressful at times, but it was also the most liberating, centering, focused time I ever had. I had never been "on my own" either for more than 1 yr of a failed stint with a roommate then moved back home and straight into marriage.
    I know you need to make sure your kids are well balanced during this time but make sure you take some of your time to focus just on you.
    You can do it!!!

    Best wishes and blessings on your journey.
    Your kids are blessed to have a mother who has their best interests at heart.
