What does life look like after divorce?
How do you pick yourself up from the pain and insecurities, and learn from it all?
How do you make yourself believe that you deserve a new beginning? An abundant life? A successful career?
How do you take that first step into a new life once again?
* * * * *
Jenna looked at herself in the mirror.
Staring back at her was a woman who looked tired and lacked sleep.
She had dark circles under her eyes, her arms were flabby, and a bulgy belly.
Was this really the cost of loving her family?
Sure, she just forgot about taking care of herself.
But why couldn’t Peter see the woman behind this outer appearance? Why was looking good better than being a good wife and mother to their child?
Jenna brushed her hair and chose clothes that didn’t show off her love handles.
She was getting ready to meet her best friend.
This was also the first time she’d be going out since Peter left her for his secretary.
Sadness bloomed inside her. The insecurity made her feel that she was never enough.
But she had to push back those thoughts for now.
When she arrived at the restaurant, Jenna immediately spotted Kate.
“Hey, how have you been?” Kate asked as they hugged.
With just one question, Jenna was taken back to the day she caught Peter cheating.
He was inside the shower when his phone notification went off.
She walked towards his phone and saw a message from his secretary.
See you at 8PM. I can’t wait. Miss you so much xx
The text brought her to her knees. When she confronted Peter, he left.
He never even looked back to see what he was walking away from.
“Hello, wake up. He’s not coming back, Jenna. Don’t tell me you were just thinking about him.” her friend insisted.
“It’s time for you to focus on yourself. You’re a wonderful woman and your daughter, Camille, knows that.”
Camille was their 6-year old daughter, who she loved so much.
Every morning didn’t even feel like a chore. She loved preparing breakfast for them.
Jenna enjoyed making their lunch for school and work.
Once they left, she would proceed in cleaning the house and do every chore that she could to keep everything tidy.
Was it a crime to let go of how she looked?
Well, maybe she did completely let go of herself. But she gave her all for her family.
Jenna was always there for their needs and wants.
“It’s time for you to choose yourself, Jenna. You even let go of your dreams as a writer.”
“You had so much passion for it before. Start from there. Don’t let this stop you from who you’re meant to be.”
When Jenna got home, Kate’s words played in her mind repeatedly.
A writer. Yes, she used to be one. But she has forgotten it all.
Perhaps she should go back to it. Because things were going to get tougher soon enough.
They were living on the savings she had left, and she had to look for a job if she wanted to continue and support Camille.
Peter was missing in action; he wasn’t answering her calls or texts.
This brought Jenna to tears.
“I’m miserable,” she said to herself.
Believe In Yourself
After Jenna met with Kate, something in her made her want to take action.
Even though deep down, she still felt betrayed, hurt, and insecure.
At night, she would still cry sometimes because of the pain she felt.
On top of that, she had to keep her head above the water.
To calm her emotions, she started to do things differently; like meditating in the comforts of her home, eating the right food, and taking care of herself.
She even got a job as a writer in a magazine. Even though the pay wasn’t what she expected, she took it.
All for her child, Camille. She had to be a mother first, always, before thinking about herself.
On her way home from work, she suddenly bumped into a woman.
“Ooh! I am so sorry I was lost in my thoughts. Are you okay?”
When she looked up, she realized that the woman in front of her was her Yoga Guru from years before.
She looked so beautiful. And while she admired her guru’s appearance, Jenna’s eyes were immediately directed to the necklace on her neck.
The pendant was shining even if the sun wasn’t shining that much anymore.
There was this energetic pull that made her want to touch it.
“Jenna, is that you? You look lovely. How are you?” her guru asked.
And from then on, their conversation led them to a coffee shop nearby.
They talked about what had happened in their lives. Jenna opened up about Peter and how she was coping.
She ended up in tears because she still couldn’t get over the fact that despite everything she did, she still wasn’t enough.
“Just because he left doesn’t mean you can’t start over again. Your life doesn’t depend on how he sees you. You can still lead a successful life on your own.”
“Don’t be afraid to pick yourself up and start over again. You know what, maybe the Universe led us to where we are today. I think this is meant to be yours.”
As soon as her guru finished talking, she took off her necklace and handed it to Jenna.
“This is a labradorite necklace. It is the stone of transformation.”
“It will empower you to be who you are meant to be, to make peace with your past in order to have an abundant future.”
“Wear it, and let me know when the magic starts to happen. Namaste.”
Jenna insisted that she didn’t need it.
Yes, the necklace was lovely, but she couldn’t possibly just take it from her guru, who she hadn’t seen in years.
But her guru told her that it had already done its job for her.
It was about time for it to help someone else.
… and the Rest Will Follow
Jenna took the time to read about the labradorite stone.
It was as beautiful as it was powerful. She continuously wore it, day in and out.
Slowly but surely, she started to feel a surge of energy within her to go for her dreams.
She started meditations with the stone, always thinking about the life she desired.
She believed that the Universe was listening to her intentions and surrendered control.
No matter what happened, it would be what was destined for her.
One night, she opened up her laptop and wrote an article about Life After Divorce.
She discussed ways on how to bounce back from it and how to love oneself once again.
After she finished writing her article, she sent it over to her boss and slept.
The next day, she awoke with numerous notifications on her phone.
Her boss loved the article! And they received so many responses from it.
Their readers loved the topic and engaged with them in their comment section.
Jenna’s boss offered to give her a shot at having her own column. Along with this was a pay raise that she didn’t expect.
She went to her daughter’s room and began kissing Camille on both cheeks.
“Oh my baby girl, we’re going to be all right!” gratitude was overflowing in her heart.
“Mom, I love you. Are you okay now?” Jenna looked at Camille and smiled.
“More than okay, sweety.”
Life is mysterious. But it always rewarded those who work hard and do not easily give up.
