I’ve often heard newly divorced women bitterly complain about “starting over.” I have never been married so does that mean that I have never actually started? I choose to think not.

I will welcome and embrace change as an opportunity to build on an existing foundation. Maybe the experiences in the past have happened to prepare me for the ventures of tomorrow.

About Teresa Stewart

I've been very thankful for the provisions, but my jobs haven't defined who I am, and my heart hasn't been with them. Now I have an opportunity to follow my heart, and redefine the means of making a living. MIOMOT -making it on my own terms.

  1. Fortunately I am not one of those women who, newly divorced, complained bitterly about anything. Having been married 21 years I welcomed the opportunity to start over. If I’m absolutely honest I spent the last 3 years of my marriage preparing myself to move forward. Onward and upward by the Grace of God is what happened. As I aged I discovered myself and all of the wonderful things about myself and entered my new life with no reservations. I have never been afraid of change and it seems the older I get the more I look forward to it. So look out world here I am!

  2. Beautiful attitude troadus2 – do you think you would have made the self discoveries mentioned if you were still in the marriage?

  3. I was actually in the process of self discovery during the marriage. It started pretty slowly during my mid to late 30s and just carried on from there as I observed the world around me and gave more thought to myself as opposed to being his wife and his mom. LOL! Nothing wrong with that either, but as I so harshly discovered if we don’t take care of ourselves and be our own individual selves we get swallowed up in everyone else. There’s no one better to take care of you than you and that’s okay!
