I'm posting for 60 days straight, leading up to my early December birthday, and I'm making the time to write on behalf of slain UCC Professor and aspiring novelist, Larry Levine. And now we have CSU Long Beach design student Nohemi Gonzalez, gunned down in Paris.
A few weeks back, I posted about the dashed dreams of an early marriage that ended in divorce after 9 years. Tomorrow was the date - 28th - and I've realized I've carried lots of anger and resentment about the whole thing. For decades now.
And I need to let it ALL go. It only creates negativity in thought which manifests into actions. The old trope, "I can't the change the past" applies here. And the marriage produced two amazing children. But as I continue the transition from day-to-day parent to empty nester, resentment about that marriage and my divorce needs to dissolve so that I can make room for new people, adventures, and living to the fullest in the decades to come.
