And Then We Rise


Rise up!  What has happened to you is not nearly as important as how you respond to it!

Begin today to think about getting up off your knees, taking your power back and thriving again. You can do it!  I know you can because I have done it.

I was devastated when I found out my husband – the man I knew I would spend the rest of my life with – had a profile on an online dating site.  I was even more devastated when I found out he was spending the night someplace else when I was out of town taking care of my aging parents.  And then, when I was sitting in my truck across the street from HER darkened house looking at my husband’s car parked in HER driveway for almost three hours, I thought I would never be able to breathe again.

Somewhere in the darkness that night, a spark came to life inside my soul.  The Warrior Goddess in me rose up and I declared – out loud to God and everyone, “I WILL NOT ONLY SURVIVE, I WILL THRIVE THROUGH THIS EXPERIENCE!

I wasn’t always able to live that motto.  Hell, the next day I lost it and blew up at him on Facebook. Yeah, not too proud of that but the whole way through, I learned and I grew. I learned how many people love me and care about me.  Friends would say, “You’re so strong!”, and I was (well except for that one week when I couldn’t stop crying!).  I learned that I love me more than he ever did.  And that has made all the difference.

Your breakup may be the most traumatic thing you’ve ever experienced, but it will not defeat you. Not if you declare you will thrive through the experience.
