My soon-to-be ex-husband and I came to a mutual agreement and last week and we shared the news of our upcoming divorce. It wasn’t the way we wanted to share it, but it happened. The word is out and thankfully, for the most part, things are going smoothly.

I do not ask for pity, sorrow or opinions at this time in my life. I look at it as a new beginning. It’s happening at a time in my life when I have never been stronger, healthier, confident or more independent. I still put myself first to make sure I continue this way and I’m still doing fabulously despite my divorce.

Sure, I could lay on the couch all day playing the "poor me game" or drag the whole family into my personal life, but that’s not the type of person I’ve become. That is what the old me would have done. The new me carries on with her head held high despite the judges and the critics. The new me takes action towards my new life and my new beginning, making it what I want it to be.

Although sad things happen in our lives, we always have a choice in how we react to them. We choose our own destiny. No one ever said life would be easy, but it sure can be a lot better if you have a positive attitude and are healthy.

I’m not sure where this new beginning is taking me, but I have no worries about moving forward. I have clarity from much meditation and I have a good relationship with myself. This helps me to move forward and trust that even though I can’t see the top of that stair case yet, I’m confident I’ll get there.

Thanks again, Dr.Oz. The new me is much better now than I’ve ever been at handling what life throws at me—good or bad!

Here’s to new beginnings and not living in the past or the future, but in the present moment. That is where it all begins.
