One Year Ago


One year ago I went from a blissful marriage to a miserable separation

One year ago I went from thinking I had a devoted husband to knowing I’d married a lying, cheating snake

One year ago I went from living in a pristine near-mansion to the 1920s bungalow we’d been renting out

One year ago I went from having had no real surgeries to having a three inch scar along the side of my right breast

One year ago I went from a luxury car into a base Prius (thankfully I’ve gone back to a luxury car to reclaim a fragment of my former life)

People act like their life is ruined because Starbucks handed them the wrong latte or because the current President isn’t the one of their choosing or because their kid got a bad grade on an exam...
Huh...
