Divorce humbles you. It is through this type of crisis that you find who your true friends are. The ones that turn their backs on you are always the ones that surprise you most. I could write several posts on this but I have let it go and moved past that.
Being a single parent humbles you. The first time your child wakes up at 2 a.m. with a raging fever and you realize you are out of Motrin is horrific. Trying to decide if you should leave your child at home and run to the store or drag them out at that time sucks.
Losing your job humbles you. Reaching the end of the month and trying to figure how to make the rest of your money last another week is scary. Not being able to take your kid to the book fair because a bill has to be paid is a shitty feeling.
Asking for help humbles you. Asking for financial help is tough but asking for a hug when you feel so incredibly lonely and not sure you can keep moving forward is even more tough. Allowing a friend to wipe your tears for the 4th day in a row while confirming how strong you are is amazing.
To say that I have become humbled in the past few months is an understatement. I have learned so much about what is truly important in life. My girlfriends that hold me up. My daughter who helps me dance in the rain of this storm. My parents....my step parents.
I am about to embark on a new chapter on the crazy roller coaster ride I have been on. I am humbled. I am excited. More so, I am stronger than I have ever been and for that I am thankful!
