On Life… and Divorce


Blog posts have been few and far between lately, but I feel like that’s OK for now. Getting out and exploring life has been FAR more important to me!

A little over a year ago, my husband blindsided me by filing for a divorce. That’s it. Done. Marriage over. No discussion. I must say though: as far as divorces come, this has been a fairly EASY process. Yes I do realize I am quite LUCKY in that respect!


Hey – I get it. I have no hard feelings toward him. We couldn’t figure out how to make things work and he didn’t want to try anymore. It didn’t take me very long to realize what a GIFT I had been given – my FREEDOM!! That’s not to say I wasn’t free while I was married, but it just wasn’t the same. I had been warned before I got married that things would be tough with an ADHD spouse. Those warnings are quite accurate! It IS tough. It’s doable, but you sure do sacrifice a lot of yourself in the process. 17 1/2 years of this sure does take its toll on a person.


Finding ME again has been quite an adventure! I never could have imagined how different my life would be. I lost track of how many times this summer my posts on Facebook started with “If you had told me a year ago that my life would be like this, I wouldn’t have believed you!” It’s true though – I wouldn’t have believed anyone if they told me how much time I’d be spending OUTDOORS! Hiking, biking, camping – even standing in the ocean in October! No way – not me. That’s not how my life has ever been.


I’m getting out, meeting people, taking classes, and making new friends! For the first time in my life – I am LOVING MY LIFE!


I still have some work to do to figure out exactly what I want from life, but that’s OK. I have absolutely NO complaints at the moment. I plan to just get out and live life to the fullest – ENJOYING every minute!


By the time this entry posts on my site, I’ll be right in the middle of my exciting 4 day adventure in the mountains of Maine and New Hampshire! Biking, hiking, and… I just never know what’s next! 😉

Most importantly, I’m HAPPY!
