For those of you who do not know the definition of codependency, good for you! I am not one of them. I have worked long and hard to break those chains, and I wanted to share some positive ways to do so. You see, I wasn’t always so well put together, literally or metaphorically.
I very recently moved across the country to follow love. By far the healthiest relationship of my life. It was scary, but I did it!
I jumped………….right into 50+ inches of snow and negative wind chills. I was forced into hibernation.
Since I work from home, this made meeting people virtually impossible. Add to that the fact that I am now an empty nester, and we have ourselves a disaster in the making. A relationship needs balance. The 80/20 rule is real people! Very real!
Although we share a majority of things in common, we don’t share everything, WHICH IS COMPLETELY OK. He hates to shop. I love to shop. I like to workout at the gym. He prefers sport activities. Oh, and he doesn’t drink coffee. BIG, BIG deal. That means, no chilling at the local cafe with yummy hot beverages and conversation.
So, to introduce some balance, I decided to start blogging. I love to write, and I enjoy sharing my life experiences. It makes me feel like i didn’t go through more trials than triumphs for nothing. I can actually, possibly share something that might help another.
So what time is it? BLOG TIME! Please be patient, and stay tuned. This is an evolving process, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
