It seems as if, no matter how positive you try and be, sometimes in life you take five steps forward then something happens and it is like being hit over the head again, and you plunge downwards again. Over the past week, I have been trying to get our agreed settlement to line up with the divorce legal process. This has not been all that easy due some complexities in our financial affairs. It has taken four days and two nights out of my life this week accompanied by much distress.
Meanwhile my husband is enjoying himself somewhere in the south of France.
Rather than tarnish this blog with a pronounced “it’s not fair” attitude that I know gets one nowhere, I thought that I would point you to two people who describe my mood this week. Firstly; to another blogger who went through a temporary ‘rant‘ recently and has since recovered and continues her positive journey through life. It is great to know that I am not alone. Secondly; to this song below performed by Whitney Houston that says it all about being determined of making it on your own, despite it seeming unfair.
As for me; midweek I got up from the floor, dusted myself off, and did what had to be done by wading through the muddy puddle that appeared in the middle of my track. I figured that there is no point in trying to walk around it as there are cliffs on either side.
I am visiting my eldest son and family this weekend, and on Monday I will resume my onward journey. I am going to make it anyway. 🙂
“It’s not right, but it’s okay I’m gonna make it anyway”. Whitney Houston
Sometimes you just gotta let it all out and then continue on – good for you! xo
Thanks. Yes this week was one where that’s all I could do.
You’re so right, life is not fair! And it’s also very true that dwelling on it gets you nowhere, I’m so glad that you are able to not get stuck in it for long (it IS impossible to be positive all the time going through a divorce and the aftermath of it). It’s the pulling through that makes us stronger!!!
Thanks for your support. Yes it will make me stronger. I keep telling myself to keep believing that. Keep on keeping on 🙂
Oh, even though I am not in the same situation I completely understand. I feel for you.
Thanks. Your words comfort me. I am glad to have found you here in the blogging world.
I do understand … I do … ! But pls dont forget its OUR LIFE ! And we rule it and not others. Wish u many many many many happy hours and days with ur family, friends and the one who truely love you!
Thanks for stopping by and making such a heartfelt comment. I really appreciate it and am so grateful that others show such care. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Your title says it all. Some days are like that. Based on your recent posts, I would say you certainly are okay. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your comment.
I decided that i must be truthful in my blog and write about the glum-thinking days as well as the more positive-thinking days.
Much better this week….. but the divorce process is still a painful drag. 🙂
Whitney’s song is perfect.
Thanks so much.
Thanks…..need hugs the day I wrote that.
Thanks for stopping by 🙂
When everything is your responsibility, sometimes you wish that someone would just take over the wheel and give you a break.
Yes, SO true.
the “keep on keeping on”……gets a little difficult now and then
Hi Elizabeth…one of the hardest parts is thinking “they party” while we suffer. But *thank you* for the great song by Whitney. She understood. (I don’t cry the tears anymore…but still think it was all so unfair, which it was for you too.
