And so it is.

May 1, 2024

Our divorce was finalized a year ago on May 1, 2023. Exactly one year prior, David “coincidentally” wrote me a letter on 5/1/22 that forever changed our lives.

We had been struggling with connection for some time. Our communication left us bitter. Our goals weren’t aligning. Our resentments were building.

I was trapped by my unwillingness to “fail.” I believed we should “stay together for the kids.” I was resistant to change, even though growth is happening every second of our lives…

And the truth was, we were growing away from each other. I lovingly saw our paths and knew that our earthly titles as husband/wife would end right where we stood – while we still had love and respect for each other.

For a long time – I felt I needed permission to leave. I was raised a “good girl” after all, who, for the most part…followed the rules. It wasn’t until I felt a deep, loving and profound spiritual connection with another being, when I KNEW something in my life was amiss. I told my husband that I will love him forever, but knew we wouldn’t be together forever.

He left me a letter, releasing me from a contract that no longer was serving the sovereign beings we were naturally becoming. He let me go because he loved me. I let him go because I love him. The last two years has been a journey rediscovering ourselves, amicably engaging our differences and hardening our family’s foundation. The boys are thriving, as I knew they would. My friendship with David has deepened, as I knew it would.

And my existence has great meaning because I chose to stand in my truth.

I am so thankful for the life we built and the world we continue to build as a family. I’m thankful for my future husband, who is working hard somewhere finding himself, so he can in turn, find me. I am thankful for God and the courage it took to leave a situation I knew in my heart, was no longer meant for me.

And so it is written.
