So why the title, To Find …Again?
Someone once said that “Each new day presents a new opportunity”. How true a perspective! Just when we’ve come to the end of one task, or work, or just when we think the sun has set on a thing, in mere hours, the sun rises and presents us with a new opportunity to tackle a new task, or an old task in a new way! Each day we are blessed to greet always provides an opportunity to try, to put in the effort, and to never give up.
In my own personal journey, I had to find the things that gave me joy, love, and hope again. I had to remind myself that going through a divorce was not the end all and be all of life. In fact, the emotional breaking allowed me to grow spiritually, mentally, and physically in ways I had never imagined. The trauma of going through a divorce forced me to focus on my own well-being. Thereby, providing the space for something new to blossom. This very thought is penned in my poem, "In the Shadows", where the opening lines state:
In the shadows of loss
Hope blossomed to the confession of love.
