Post Image

After publishing my last blog post, I couldn’t stop thinking about how precious and beautiful my connections with some people have become, so I wanted to expound on it a little more. Last night, I reconnected with some good friends that I shared some special experiences with a little while ago. These people, who I […]

A Beautiful Thing

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~Maya Angelou~ This week should have been one of the hardest of my life. Five days ago, I was manipulated once again by his threats, which were more dangerous than […]

Baby Steps

While I have learned a lot over the past little while and gotten better at standing up for myself with other people, I am still very much codependent with my ex. He knows exactly how to yank me around and cause the most damage. He goes on rants and I’ll receive multiple phone calls and […]

“Write hard and clear about what hurts.” ~Ernest Hemingway~ Most of the time lately, I feel pretty good. I feel strong and able and even excited to face the challenges in front of me, because they are finally new and unknown and include more steps toward my own freedom and growth.

I still love my soon-to-be ex-husband. It’s a strange but real truth. I love him for being the father of my amazing children. I love him for being the kind of man who is willing to sacrifice his life for our country. I love him for all the precious and joyful moments we have shared. […]

I’m being yanked back and forth by what other people decide to do, or given peace when they decide it’s time for me to have peace. I’m drained physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and it’s time to take myself back. […]

  And though she be but little, she is fierce. ~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream~ I had a really good therapy appointment last night. I love therapy. I recommend it to EVERYONE, even you less-than-crazies. Actually, in my experience, the ones who know they’re crazy are probably less crazy than the ones who don’t […]

  Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction. ~Oprah Winfrey~   I have failed. It’s strange to admit that and not find it utterly depressing. I gave everything I had and more than I ever thought I could. I put my whole heart and soul into something I felt worth it, […]

freedom

Something new and beautiful is sparking back to life inside of me.  It is small, but strong, and determined never to be snuffed out again.  Hello Hope, my old friend.  I have missed you. ~Micki’s Musings 1/4/16~ I am now a statistic. I always abhorred the idea of being this kind of statistic. Honestly, that […]
