Into The Ocean

One year today since the divorce was final. It feels like longer, it feels like no time at all. I still can't believe I am even really a divorced person. It was never in my plan for myself. But neither was getting married a year later. And well that is a wonderful unplanned thing. It's another chapter in my life. It's all part of the same novel. No regrets though. I am not so arrogant that I think that I have had my fair share of hardship and it's a rainbows and butterflies from here on out. There will be more even though I can't imagine bearing it at this time. But you can not have the heights without the depths. And I know this about myself. When I love someone, I mean it forever. No matter how our relationship changes I love to the absolute ends of the earth and beyond. And I am grateful for it all. I tell you with all honestly that nothing gets taken for granted in my life. I did not think I needed another wake up call. But something in the universe is trying to teach a lesson and I hope this time I learned it.
