Going through my divorce was one of the most painful experiences I have ever suffered.
I was so sure, caught up in the despair of the moment, that it was the biggest disaster of my life and that I would never truly recover.
But that was my fear talking.
My fear of the future… of losing my marriage, my life as I knew it… my “place” in a relationship.
I was so limited by my thinking.
I couldn’t see past the crisis to what might be there for me on the other side: a life full of joy and happiness that fit me much better than the one I currently was clinging to.
All I could focus on was my fear of more “unforeseen doom” every “worse case scenario” connected to the loss of my marriage.
But today, I live a life that my limited thinking could have never imagined.
It is a life full of love and passion.
It is a life full of trust and compassion.
It is a life where the people I now spend time with accept me for who I am and support me in all of my endeavors.
Fear and limited thinking is a way to keep me chained to a past that no longer works for me.
I must have faith that my Higher Power can see what I cannot… the unlimited possibilities of my life… and that he will lead me to a better future when I am ready to follow.
“Dear God, help me to let go of fear and walk bravely into my future. Help me to see that with your guidance my life can be more than I ever imagined it could be.”
