Do I worry about what people will think about me due to the fact that I write a blog & post things on Facebook pertaining to my divorce recovery & learning to live alone again? Do I fear that I won’t be able to get dates? Or that I will inadvertently drive away the man of my dreams? No.

 No, I do not worry about those things. Recovering from breaking up with the man who I thought hung the moon within 2 years of getting a divorce from the man I was married to for a quarter of a century was no easy task. It was hard. Very hard. Realizing that someone is not who you thought they were is a very disappointing thing all by itself, without all of the other transitions that accompany those events. But I did it. I’m a survivor.

 I write about these things, because I feel compelled to do so in order that my experiences may give someone else a small comfort so that they will know that they are not alone, that others have walked their path, & that there is indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. And the right man for me? Well, it’s going to be hard to find a man that can hang with me: after all, I am a unique individual, LOL. 

But he will understand that I am a storyteller, & that to forbid a storyteller to tell their stories is akin  to sucking the very life out of them. And he will understand that not everything that I write is something that I am experiencing at the present moment. And he will feel the need to encourage other people as much as I do. And he will appreciate the fact that I do not need him to make me happy, but want him in my life so we can share each other’s joy. 

So no, I’m not worried about the things that I post. Clients, family, friends, & prospective dates take note: It is for you that I write, not myself. I understand that it’s not for everyone. But I hope that everyone understands that for me, it is something that I must do. #contentinGodslove.

I am a Southern Belle, through and through. Born and raised in North Alabama, where my family settled in 1808, when the area was still the Mississippi Territory, I come from a line of Planters, Patriots, and Pioneers. They were people who were unafraid to take risks, who said what they believed, and who honored God and their Country. Like my ancestors before me, I have strong values, believing that the Golden Rule is indeed golden. I write as a way to relate and as a release. I hope that my words may inspire, challenge and provoke one to thinking about how extraordinary things can come out of ordinary places, people, and things.
