Even if you haven’t had a productive year, blogging feels like you’ve waited almost 365 days to talk about it.
That happened with this campside scarf that I finished last April after having had a dozen winters.
Let me explain. For those of you who don’t know, I’ll divorce you. My soon to be ex-husband and I officially separated in May 2018. I spent the next six months enjoying my newly discovered freedom and loving my amazing friends – it was a great time. However, last winter hit reality; It was really hard for me because even though I know that everything is the best, it is still a big adjustment of life. Although I won’t go into details here, I will say that it is difficult to feel alone or that divorce is shameful. It’s not something people talk about for these reasons, and the mentality of everyone sticking to the bootstraps doesn’t help either.
(Here is some unsolicited advice for those of you who are getting divorced from friends or family: don’t treat them as if they just have to hold on to the bootstraps. Because they want to strangle you with these bootstraps.)
However, I would not say that I am “well” now, but I am much happier. Great things are happening, and I firmly believe that you cannot experience true happiness without acknowledging the bad, rather than pushing it aside (if you are interested, there are actually several Articles where the positivity movement is called … well … negative). Sometimes you have to wallow in your crap if you ever want to hope to get out.
Since I’m happier, I’m again a wild obsessed knitter who updates her blog. Which means that I have a lot of catching up to do.
