  • It's morning and another day of moving. Since I was supposed to get my new home in mid April, I've been living out of boxes for nearly three months now. I'd say it was frustrating (which it is) but i do enjoy the adventure of it all. A new home, getting my furniture fixed, dreaming of where I'll put up my paintings. I'd rather not keep thinking about the fact that it's a result of an end of a marriage, as that makes me sad. That ended a while ago, I finally get my own place now. Though I am still a little anxious about being with my two kids alone. I guess it's natural. I prefer to focus on the positive. Having my friends over for dinner, reading my books in my new room, maybe doing some fabulous cooking, cuddling with my babies, painting in my patio (driveway), and living.
    Taking the positive out is what allowed me to maintain a strong friendship with my children's father in the first place. There's a reason why we all choose each other in the first place. Just because it does it work out, doesn't mean we were wrong. Doesn't mean we have to justify our mistake by making the other bad. That just serves the ego and continues the pain. I think it's important to rejoice in life. Take the positive out of each experience. You are your own biographer.
