  • Five years ago I walked out on my marriage.

    Five years ago everything that I had hoped for, prayed for, dreamed of, fell into a million pieces.

    Five years ago I was so damaged and hurt I thought I could never be in a relationship again.

    Five years ago I thought my life was over.

    Five years ago I never imagined I would be able to let go of all this hurt and pain.

    Today, I choose not to regret. I choose hope and love and trust.

    I choose to let go.
