Finding yourself again –

A dear friend sent me this link to an article concerning “losing ourselves” in our relationships with men.  It does seem to happen, has for generations.  Sometimes on the “other side” of marriage we manage to recoup that which we had given “away” or given “up” when we married.  It’s true, we can lose ourselves totally and forget the things that we believed in, that we were passionate about, that meant the world to us.

I share the post here with you to provoke thoughts of what you lost, and what you now have the freedom to get back.  It’s a struggle but maybe, just maybe it’s also an opportunity.  I’m reminded of a poster I once had hung up in my classroom. I know you’ve heard it!  “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”  I’ll be making some lemonade today!!
