Disappointment; it’s a hard pill to swallow. Sometimes the weight of said disappointments can sit on your chest, you feel like its snuffing out your very existence; the hurt, shame, and embarrassment that comes along with knowing that you failed at something. 

What I’ve learned in my 29 years of life is that it’s easier for me to get over when someone else disappoints me. But what happens when you disappoint yourself?  How do you get over that? 

As I sit here and pen my thoughts on this keyboard, I analyze the feelings of disappointment that I currently feel. I’m 29 years old, I’m in the midst of ending my second marriage and I’m a single mother of 2. I look back and I think to myself, how did I get here? Where did I go wrong, while traveling down this road called life?

It’s so easy to look back and say I should have, I could have, but the reality is that I didn’t. So I’m learning to hold myself accountable for past mistakes and disappointments. 

I embark on this journey of healing, of discovery and of learning who I am as a woman, and as a mother.  I know it won’t be easy, hell nothing in life is. However, I’m determined to embrace this new chapter in my life and I invite you to share in my journey.

Welcome to A Single Mother's Journey.
