Happy New Year!!!
This is the first day of 2013, and I am excited about all of the wonderful things that this year will bring.
I first want to say thanks to the community of women on this site. You have taught me one of the greatest universal truths, and that is that we are so much more the same than we are different. It doesn’t matter if you are married 1 year or 20, from the UK or US, we are all bonded in this journey of healing. Every single interaction that I have had through this site has helped me to heal, and taught me lessons in my own journey, and for that I am grateful.
In 2013 my posts will include my regular messages around infidelity, but also will include empowering themes and messages. The site will have a yearly motivational theme along with a monthly motivational message catered towards personal growth and healing. My ultimate goal is the same – to have women know that they are not alone in this journey, and to empower women to heal, one day at a time (men are welcome in the journey as well).
With that said, the 2013 theme for the site is RECLAIM YOUR POWER. So often in life, as women, we give our power away, often times, subconsciously. We give our power away by constantly putting our needs last. We give our power away by consistently sacrificing our own happiness for family and kids. We give our power away when we talk to ourselves in a way that leaves us feeling alone and trapped.
I was this person. And I was miserable. I gave my power to anyone that was willing to take it. Not anymore. Through a process of self-reflection and healing, I reclaimed my power. And ironically, because I reclaimed my power, I am in a better position to give my full self to those I love.
No matter where you are in recovery, you can reclaim your power. You are much more powerful than you think.
If you decided to stay married and work on your marriage, that is a choice you made, feel good that you held the power to make that choice to work on the marriage, and without you making that choice, the marriage would be dissolved.
If you decided to leave, leave from a position of strength, knowing that your choice to leave is the right one for you, because you made it. Reclaim your power.
If your husband cheated and left with the other woman, reclaim your power to start a new life. A new journey, a new beginning.
2013 Theme – Reclaim Your Power – HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
