You Just Have To Believe In It......

I knew my marriage was over when my ex husband said to me that,"Happiness was overrated." At that very moment in my life I knew that a change had to be made, and know one could make that change but me. The odd thing about my former husband saying that to me was that I had just had a hard core talk to God, asking him to,"Give me a sign, if I am doing the right thing in getting a divorce." Little did I know or expect that I would be having a conversation less than thirty (30) minutes later, that would change my life for ever.

I had been in a very long, very bad marriage, and all in all I had spent the last 25 years of my life, with a person that in the back of his mind always thought that ,"Happiness was overrated" if only I had listened to myself many years before and looked more closely at the signs that I was given over the years my life would be different than it is today. A different life doesn't necessarily mean a better life, just different that it would have been if I had made hard choices a long time ago. It doesn't matter what you believe in spiritually one of the most basic things that we often forget is that we have to believe in ourselves as well.

Now of course if I had made certain choices at certain times, major changes would have taken place in my life, like not having three (3) beautiful children, not meeting certain people that are in my life because, who knows? I could have moved out of state or taken a job elsewhere. So I guess what I am saying is that even though the choices I made where not necessarily the "right" choices, they definitely where not the wrong choices, because with each of those choices that I made, it made me the person that I am today, which is a stronger, more intelligent and even a more giving person, because I know what it is like to give and receive nothing in return.

I am also a more positive person, and realize that they daily things that happen in our lives happen for a reason, although that may sound a bit cliche` it is very true, and I live every day knowing that even when bad things happen, as long as you learn from them they are not bad things at all, they are just things that happen and make you who you are, and after all being who you are is NEVER a bad thing.

So believe in yourself, believe in your choices even if they take you down path that is a little more difficult to walk down, believe in them, because ultimately, by believing in your choices you are believing in you!
