Yesterday I turned another year older. I took out my fine wedding china that has been in boxes since the wedding almost 5 years ago. It’s been almost 2 years since my divorce and I realized that it was useless to waste it by keeping it in boxes because I am not married anymore. It’s meant to be for a celebration so for me own special day, reaching my mid-thirties, I got it out and ate breakfast and sipped my coffee.
Pondering on that I thought of how the last few years I have remembered certain days associated with my marriage nuptials or dissolution. I decided this year I will make new traditions. I will celebrate the woman that I am, not the past that no longer fits who I am. I will start to focus on going forward from here with a bright future. I can celebrate me.
I was so touched by so many birthday wishes yesterday. I believe this is indeed going to be my year.
