Moving On

Hello Readers!

This week’s post is about a recent life change for me. Next week is my 26th Anniversary with The Other Half. Normally, this would be a time of great happiness. One tradition we did on our anniversary was to decorate for the Christmas holiday. We started this tradition when we first married, because it included my two sons, who were very little.

As some of you may have seen on my Facebook page, I shared that my husband has asked that we split up. And NO, I’m not going to use my blog or Facebook or Twitter accounts to wail and moan about my lot in life, or to drag my departing spouse over the coals.

When I get down, I like to go looking on the internet for inspirational/motivational sayings. One of the best that I have found is just about anything written by Doe Zantamata. Doe has a way of getting to the core of an issue and leaving a person thinking, “Wow, I wish I could think like that!” Her poems and saying always resonate with me.

I thought I would share with you some of Doe’s quotes and pictures that I have found helpful these last couple of weeks.


My hope is that if you are going through a trying time of your own, perhaps one of these will resonate with you, too. To be truly happy in life, I think we each need to realize our own value. We need to know that caring for ourselves as much as we do our friends and family is crucial to our mental health and our souls.

So in the words of Doe Zantamata, I will strive to … “Forgive, Let Go, and Be Free.”
