Becoming myself


Today's a special day for me! It's the 7-year anniversary of my divorce being final! It's amazing how different life is now compared to then. I consider my divorce to be a blessing in my life. It's sad and terrible that my marriage to Dan didn't work at all, but if not for that I would never had discovered how much God loves me. He forgives me for that - I am not condemned to hell for getting a divorce. And because I have followed His ways since, He continues to bless me! That's not to say I haven't had my fair share of screw-ups - I am soooooo not perfect. But He forgives them to and I try to never do those stupid things again.
The other thing I am amazed with is myself. Back then...I thought I was worthless - not truly capable of much - totally depressed and almost suicidle (I can relate to Jeremy). Dan was good at keeping me on the carpet - but once I left that - I discovered myself and my dreams again. Yesterday I had the "last meeting" for a new job opportunity. He complimented me highly on carriage, attitude, knowledge, strength, and personality...he thought I was already a manager. I've wanted to believe I could be for a long time and it helps to have an outsider validate that for me. So, like Odie - I got reminded of what I can truly be and I have potential for more!

You sound just like me. I hate to see people get divorced, but it was one of those things where God took a bad and made a good out of it for me too. I'm finally able to be who I am, and am married to the greatest woman and my best friend as a result.
