The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

After over-hearing a random comment today, I began to think about my own situation. People seem to have names for parts of their lives. The comment I heard was someone referring to her bonus years with her husband. Within my own mind, I decided to try and define this part of my life. In a weird sense I think it gives me a bit of control. I’ve aptly named this period in my life the “Starting-over Years”. It’s a time filled with a lot of complexities. For me it’s beginning with a reawakening of self. For so long I was part of a whole, and now that’s no longer applicable.

I thought about calling this entry “The Road to Recovery”, but the more I thought about it, the more it sounded like rehab. This is something entirely different. So with this post, I am going to begin to share weekly about this part of my life. Hopefully if I can make you laugh, or make you think, then this “Starting-over years”, will have some good come from it. Stay tuned…next week I’ll have some fresh material for your thoughtful enjoyment.

I'm looking forward to your writings. Great title for this part of your life. You are such a strong gal and have come so far. Believing in yourself is so important. Congratulations, Chrsytal.

I've never thought of my life in terms of labels.

It just is what it is to me, there is good and bad, reflection, just being.

I guess I just view it as all one big encompassing entity, rather than in portions.

If I did, I have no idea what I would call this portion of my life.

The absolutely frustrating, trying to get preggo years? LOL
