Don't get me wrong...at first, I was miserable...didn't know what I was supposed to do...felt like shat. But once the grieving process was over (and it takes as long as it takes), and the clouds cleared, I started to think, "Wait a second...he's gone. No more walking on egg shells...no more random agitated calls on my cell phone 3 minutes after I've left the house..."
It took me about six months to 'snap out of it', but once I did, all I could think was, "I can do ANYTHING...I can do anything I want...I'm so excited...but what do I want to do??" I decided to start my own business. I also decided to get a tattoo (he hated tattoos).
And the same goes for you. There are new decisions to be made about EVERYTHING. All those decisions are entirely yours. What's for dinner....when do I want to go to bed....if you're a stay at home mom, you might have to decide what you're going to do for money. What're you going to do for a living? Are you going to work at home? Or are you going to hop into the jobsearch traffic? Are you going to take up a hobby? (Kickboxing works WONDERS for stress =)
The world is your oyster....there are no limits. You can do as you please (within reason...).
Here's a question; If you could do absolutely anything for a living, and be guaranteed that you WOULD NOT fail, what would you do? And why? Email me and let me know. I'm interested in finding out what some of us would do.
Here's to new beginnings!
