Big plans for 2014!!!!

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Hello sparkfriends!!! I am back! Not just because it's a new year, not because I need to get back on track, but because I miss you, I need accountability and I need your help. I know you are always there for me and for that I am forever grateful!!!

This past month and a half has been tough, emotional, exciting, depressing, confusing and well...downright exhausting!!! I have finally found the nerve, or maybe I should call it courage, to ask to be happy again. I am not trying to be elusive, but what this means is this, I've asked my husband for a separation. I am ready to put the toxic behind me, to grow as a person and to take a long look at my life and figure out what I NEED.

I anticipate the following: Lots of tears, lots of deep reflection, lots of difficult decisions to make and most of all, lots of 'a ha' moments. Now, to put this into action! I don't know what this journey will be like? I don't know what the future holds for my husband and I? But I do know this...I will make every effort to make 2014 the best year ever so far for me and my family.

Today I have my health, I have a family who loves me and friends (near, far and online) that support me. I am thankful!!!!!

Now off I go, I need to start making a plan! I will see you in 2014!!!! Let's make it a good one!!!

    Welcome back! I'm not on as frequently as I was before because real world commitments supersede virtual ones. But I'm trying day at a time. I can imagine it must be difficult to ask for the separation, to put yourself first, but you need to find the YOU you know is inside, burried under ....the bleck. Peel yourself like an onion & dont be afraid to cry. We got your back.

    I am so happy to see your post. I am not happy that you asked for a separation. How very hard that must be, but often once the decision is made (whatever it is), everything looks and feels better. The uncertainty and anguish in making a hard decision can be debilitating.

    You know I am here to support, cheer on and encourage you and I look forward to your encouragement. FWIW, you were encouraging me a few weeks ago when I wanted to sneak in a work out and I got out the Spark DVD that you gave me as a gift. I thought of you while I worked out!
