Today it became official. As I sit here on a dock overlooking the Choctawhatchee Bay, the feeling is bittersweet. I’m officially divorced. The hardest three years of my life are over. I’m having trouble putting into words what I’m feeling right now. The memories of what was, of what could have been, and of love lost.

It’s fitting that I received the news while in Florida, a state that I’ve grown to despise. And yet, I’m excited for the future. I have a new lease on life, I’ve learned more about myself and my capacity for resiliency than I thought possible, and I love the life I’m building in Colorado, a state that feels more like home than anywhere I’ve ever lived.

Life is good. If we didn’t have sadness we couldn’t appreciate the happy times. It’s the duality of life that makes things enjoyable. So here’s to new beginnings. To fun and adventure. And never settling for less than we deserve!
