today is a big day.

some may think i should be hiding in a corner crying my eyes out. or in a deep contemplative state wondering how life got to be the way it is. or wanting to be a recluse and not see or talk to anyone.

but i'm not.

instead i am breathing the biggest sigh of relief i probably ever have.

on november 4th, 2011, i completed a long, rough 8 hour drive by myself. and when i walked in the door of the home i grew up in with a suitcase and tired eyes, i breathed a sigh of relief.

but today. today it is all done. it is finalized and official and i no longer have to sit in this limbo land waiting for all ties to be cut. the sigh of relief is even bigger today.

today one of the many weights sitting on my shoulders is being lifted. possibly the biggest weight of them all.

today i am officially divorced. today i am officially freed of the emotional abuse that i endured for 7 years. today i can take a new step forward without the one little tie still hanging on by a thread.

11 months, hours of phone calls, hundreds of dollars, and countless tears later, it is done.

today i am happy. i am relieved. i am content.

today the healing takes a giant leap forward.

oh and i also started a new job today. see? big day.
