Well today was a good day for me. I really feel like I can learn to let go of my husband. I made a effort today to not think about him and just focus on me and my children. I did really well. Couple of small slips but I caught myself in time. I'm kinda afraid of what tomorrow will bring. I am so tired of having crummy days. My kids are going on a weekend vacation with their aunt and uncle. This will be the first weekend for as long as I can remember without my kids and without my husband... I am going to desperately try to make this a weekend about me. I so need it, I am just afraid of it. I have only been here about a month so I dont really have any friends yet. I just dont want to spend the weekend crying. Any suggestions when your all alone and dont know anyone really?

What do you like to do?

For me I would go for a walk in nature or sit by a stream or visit the beach- just spend some time surrounding myself with plants and wildlife.

Do you like the movies or books? Do you have any hobbies?

Go to the spa and treat yourself to your favorite dessert afterward.

After my divorce, I realized that I didn't know what I liked because I had always conformed to those around me... if they liked comedy movies, I went along with it: if they liked adventure, I did too. But what I discovered was that I really didn't like the movies at all- what I really wanted to do was be outside with the sun, wind, rain and stars- just enjoying the fresh air. But it took me a while to really grasp and accept that my wants were important. I don't know if you are experiencign that too, but that is what I discovered when I was alone. At first it was uncomfortable, but after a while it was wonderful to discover my interests.

Sending you warm hugs and a high five for your weekend of self-care.
