Huff Post Reading "7 Ways To Embrace Being On Your Own After Divorce"

I was doing a bit of reading from the Huff post, the divorce section.  I came across this article, "7 Ways To Embrace Being On Your Own After Divorce"  I like to try to apply at least part of my readings to my life so let's take a look and see how they apply to me now over 2 years since my X walked out.  My comments on her suggestions are in italics...I will choose 3...

Define who you are outside of marriage
In marriage, I would have to describe myself as a lady in "waiting".  Waiting to live my life.  Waiting on my husband.  Waiting for promises to be kept.  Waiting while he pursued his dreams and goals so that I could eventually work on my own.  Waiting, waiting, waiting.  Now I would have to say I am doing.  I go out with friends, I plan trips, I am working on my blogs and no longer get made fun of for it.  I am doing my best to find myself and it feels good.

Get healthy. (And note that "healthy" doesn't mean losing a ton of weight.) 
     I need to do a better job with this one.  I am doing Zumba 2-3 times a week, but I need to add to my routine with weights and maybe yoga.

Take a solo trip. 
I have already done this and I hope to do much more.  My dream has always been to travel.  Local or far away, it does not matter.  I recently took a trip with the Road Scholars.  I drove 12 hours to get to my destination in the Finger Lake region of NY.  What a blast.  Met amazing people from all over, learned about the area from our guide and other speakers, and explored.  I loved it.  I can't wait to go on my next adventure.  I also began travel blogging.  This is becoming my passion.

I know it is a daily battle but hold on and keep moving.
God Bless!
