A New Day – A New Adventure

Life can be smooth sailing or a twisting country road. Mine has been full of potholes and speed bumps lately! Some of the feelings I’m experiencing are the same as during my divorce: betrayal, loss, shame, sadness, and confusion. I carry these feelings as tightness in my chest, slumping my shoulders and looking down.

It was a toxic relationship I hung onto for the innocents I love. When we give more than we get, we deplete our resources and become resentful, bitter, and sometimes vindictive. That’s a trap we fall into for the sake of love, being loved, and belonging.

I find that writing down positive affirmations and repeating them as needed is helpful. Here are a few of my favorites.


  1. Today, I will use my senses to calm myself, find my safe place, and breathe.
  2. I will rejoice in this opportunity to experience a new home in a new state and help in my journey to calmness and well-being.
  3.  When I better myself, I am better at helping others; as I help others move forward, I am better at helping myself.
  4. The beauty of the sky, the ocean, and the flowers fill my senses. I stand straight and walk with grace
