Thanks for joining me!
This is the part where I find out who I really am.
I married right out of high school, and spent all my life building a life with someone else. After I left my husband, Chef, I had to figure out how to live on my own. I had no idea who I was without him, and so for the next few years, I set out to find myself. When the titles were stripped away — wife, mother, daughter — who was left?
Turns out, there was a lot left. Everything changed. I liked a whole different genre of music and literature. I liked living peacefully, quietly. I was more selective of the kinds of people I allowed in my life.
I’m still learning, but so far, I’m enjoying this part of my life. After it ended, something new began, and I’m loving every minute of it.
