Image result for what a difference a year makes
Think about that for a moment. Where were you in your life a year ago? Who were you with? What were you like? What battles and demons were you fighting against?

Now, what battles and demons have you slayed? What fears have you faced? Believe me there are plenty more to overcome. But really - what a difference a year makes!

Last year at this time my husband and I split up. I moved out. And I moved to another town almost 50 miles away. I was in a different nursing job. I was miserable in that job too. I had not sponsored anyone in my Younique business. So much has changed!!

I just signed my first #YouniquePresenter yesterday!! I am so excited about that!! I am at a different nursing home, making more money, happier... Hubs and I are together. We go out together. We talk. #LifeIsGood

O Demanding One: CHRISTIAN: How Great Is Our God!heyurs on March 13th, 2017 08:03 pm (UTC)

This is the post that God drew me near to see. My heart instantly went out to you, and I wrote you. Remember? I am going to go back through now, and see if I can learn more and know what happened... I never did get back with my husband. He was not good. I felt so ashamed and beat myself up over it for years, but I know I made the right decision to get away. I had not been putting God first in my life, and it all came to an ugly end. That's another story, though, for another time. Thanks for inviting me into your life as a friend. I feel blessed. :) ♥

{{Awwww Ursula}}}}} You really are the sweetest person I've met in a long long time. I'm grateful that our paths crossed. Yes, I absolutely do remember when I got that first note from you. I hadn't been coming into LJ on a regular basis. I felt kinda badly that your note was 3 weeks old! I'm so sorry you had to wait and wonder.

I'm not 100% sure that I actually started writing in my journal from the very beginning when hubs and I were splitting up last year. I was also going into a forum and talking to ppl in there. And making some posts on a forum too. The whole thing was so tramatic to me actually. And I feel like I have some blank spots. And others I remember as if it were just 5 minutes ago girl!

I'm so sorry that your marriage ended & that you beat yourself up over it. I hope your not doing that anymore. It takes two to succeed. It's very hard to maintain a relationship by yourself.

Just incase there isn't a post here about exactly what happened, it goes a bit like this.

December 5th 2016 I had attended a local christmas bazarr as a vendor, with a table for my Younique business. But I had gotten a migraine and decided to leave early. Came home. Hubs brought me a
coffee from a shop. And had been cute and funny that day. A couple hours later around 3:00 in the afternoon he said he was going to go have a couple beers at the bar. ok...

Well, many hours later he comes back says he cant stand the sight of me, he wants a divorce, I'm an
f'ing c***. Ummm I do not deserve to be talked to like that. There was nothing I did to deserve that.
And no way am I going to live like that, and have that become the norm. So, I started looking for
a place the next day. Two days later I found a place.

Everytime we argue or are not talking, he feeds only himself.

So, during this time (which I think was a week or two) I was getting meat out of the freezer to eat. While he was eating out, going to the store and getting whatever he wanted etc...

Then after I told him I found a place. Which it took me like 3 days to work up the nerve to tell
him. Then he goes out and gets drunk again! And proceeds to come home and start lashing
out at me again. How he can't believe I'm doing this 'to him'. He can't believe i'm leaving him in
all this debt. blah blah blah...

I contacted the rental agency and asked if I could move in early. So I had to pay $165.00 for the last part of December. I moved out on Christmas Eve. Went to my daughter's for christmas and spent the night
there... I was so depressed that christmas I did not even call my parents. I really was not
speaking to anyone.

This was my first time of living on my own in 30 years. Infact, when I lived on my own before my kids were little. So, I had never ever lived totally on my own. It was soooo quiet! *lol*

O Demanding One: Encourage: Life-Handle With Prayerheyurs on March 14th, 2017 07:58 pm (UTC)

Oh, WOW. Just out of the blue---he must have had something else crawling up his butt, and just lashed out at you. Well, I am thankful he didn't put his hands on you, but still, words ARE hurtful no matter what that old saying about sticks and stones... I'm sorry. I truly hope he has begged for your forgiveness, and that you two have resolved to move forward with no more of his ugliness. *hugs you* No one deserves that.

No apologies to me about waiting--I know that life happens. :) I am very touched that you have shared this with me, and I am looking forward to us getting to be even better friends. ♥
