This is a food blog. I discuss primarily food-related matters. Or perhaps it is a healthy living blog? I do discuss exercise quite often.
So dear readers, forgive me this post because it will be neither food nor exercise-related. I promise I will return to these topics at my next post.
For now, I just want to say that Pete and I have decided to end our relationship for personal reasons. I will not go into specifics because this is a very private matter that I feel should remain between him and myself. I will note that the decision to end our relationship was a mutual one, and we both feel it is for the best.
It’s funny how the right thing can simultaneously be the most painful thing. Celine Dion’s (admittedly sappy) song I Love You, Goodbye is a perfect summary of my feelings. While I am hurting very deeply right now, I know that I can get through this. I am a strong person, and I plan on taking this time to focus on myself and the things that make me happy.
Things like cooking and reading and writing and running. I will hold my head high during this painful time. I will take one day at a time, one step at a time, one breath at a time. I will march forward with my life in the certainty that I have been true to myself throughout this process.
And really, when you think about it, our longest relationship is the one we have with ourselves. Might as well make it an honest and loving one. That’s how I look at it, anyway.
Thanks for spending the time to read my random musings. Just writing this out has been cathartic.
Till tomorrow (when food and exercise-related material shall return)….
