I want to be that strong, independent and healthy woman that I wanted my mother to be, that I always thought I would be. Regardless of what happens with MC, this is my goal.
While it is true that I no longer believe in “happily ever after” nor in the idea that going through the most awful things somehow inoculates you from experiencing awful things in your future. I do recognize that life has and will continue to have its ups and its downs and its all arounds. Within that reality, I can find purpose and beauty. Within that reality, I must choose to find purpose and beauty.
