so ... the other day ...

The other day ... I realized something. I realized that I have CRIED MY LAST TEAR over my ex-husband (an alcoholic) - and this has been EXTREMELY empowering for me!!! I WILL NOT CRY for him ANY LONGER - the truth is - the FACT IS - that I have done so MUCH with my life in the past 2 and a half years. GOSH I AM PROUD OF MYSELF :-)

Since he has left ... :-) I am so proud of this, but since he has left ... I was accepted into nursing school and I have only one YEAR left to go before I will finish nursing school.

And you know what - I could have NEVER DONE THAT while I was married to him.

The weirdest thing is that HE left ME - and looking back, he did me the BIGGEST FAVOR of my entire life. It was cosmically huge what he did for me.
