Joining Amber for The Letter Link-Up. This month, refreshment.
You’re also in need of refreshment with your apartment and house chores. Get to it! It’s the perfect time to start fresh, as we’ve already discussed, and you really need to start actually checking things off of your to-do lists instead of them rolling over into the next week. Go back and look at how many times that’s happened just this month – way too many, I can assure you. Put the Christmas decorations away, do all of the laundry and PUT IT AWAY, organize your clothes, donate some clothes that are just taking up space (because you know you’ll never wear it like you say you will), clean out your refrigerator of things that have sat there a little longer than you’d care to admit, and shred that stack of paper that keeps growing and growing. GET.IT.DONE. You feel bogged down and stressed because there’s a lot to be done, it’s true, but no one is going to take care of it but you. You rely on yourself now, remember? If you don’t do it, it won’t get done. But again, you can start small. Do a little each day and you’ll be done in no time. And you’ll feel much better about yourself and your home once it’s all taken care of. I promise.
There’s laughter in your future. There’s happiness and joy and contentment. There are answers to your prayers, and you will look back on this time with your head held high, because you got through it. You got through being divorced and you moved on with your life. One day, you’ll be married again and with kids (God willing), and you’ll be able to read all of your divorce posts and be proud of the woman you became through all of it. It’s easy to be bitter and angry all the time, you have a pretty good reason to be! But it takes a strong person to take the high road and get through a divorce with class. And you, my dear, have done just that. You don’t bad mouth him, you don’t give him much thought at all, and you’re all the better for it. Be refreshed in this new season because you deserve it. You need it.
