There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
When I stopped looking for the right person. That's exactly when the universe let the right person find me. ❤ Cant believe it's only been a month since we first met. It's amazing how much joy and laughter this man brings me.

Anyone remember the Brooke Burke video back in the day with her doing this exact exercise on a fitness ball?
On December 31st, 2017 I looked at my husband and said I'm leaving. He thought I was going to the store and I told him, no, I'm leaving leaving. For good.
In recent weeks I've been accused of living a fake life and that I was acting my way through the last combined 15 years of my life and 7 year marriage. When your in a relationship with a narcissist doing what you have to do to get by, to avoid arguments and to feel safe requires a little bit of intuitive smarts and yes, even some acting.
There is never a good time to leave a bad relationship. When you are married to one with a child it's even harder to leave. Then, you'll get to the point where enough is enough. You miss that person you once were. You miss the laughter, joy and connectedness you once had with friends and family that you no longer see because your afraid to bring your narsistic, alcoholic, socially awkward spouse to the work or family picnic, or can't go because your spouse has repeatedly told you how bad, annoying and pathetic those people are and you've started to believe him. That it's easier to just go along with what they say than to ruffle any feathers. That its easier to give up on the people, places and activities you love than hear the wrath from your spouse of why you can't go or how horrible it was if you did go.
Then one day something within you sparks again. You realize you've lost enough of the things that are important to you. The things that fulfill your life. That you are simply tired of "acting your way" through a life that has drowned your true identity and robbed you of living the life you've dreamed of since you were a little girl. When you decide enough is enough. I hope you find the courage to leave, to start new and find that beautiful soul and person you once were. Because YOU ARE worthy of a beautifully healthy, happy and fulfilled life.
