Woke up this morning and decided....

That I'm going to do it. I'm going to turn my life around. My divorce is final in October, and I"ve always wanted to continue my education. I'm going this evening to register for classes and I'm going to work on my goal to be a counsler. I'm getting out of this dead end relationship I've been in for 5 months, I have known for a long time that it wasn't going anywhere. So any advice or words of encouragement for me? I want to keep up this positive attitude!

  • I'm super excited about going back to school....a little nervous about letting the guy go though lol...he's been my life for 5 months but I know it needs to be done. I just don't know how to do it, I'm constantly thinking about him and I hope I have the stregnth not to pick up the phone and call him. Maybe I'll be so swamped with homework I won't find the time to call LOL.

  • Way to go!! There is nothing better than knowing that you are going to have a better life. This is proof that our future is in our hands. This is a great example for your children. You are teaching them to stand up for themselves and to do what makes them happy. I am happy for you. With what you have been through, I think that you would make a great counselor. Good luck and never give up!!!!
