“Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.”
The words a very dear friend sent me around a year ago. At the time, I found that a real struggle; torn between what had happened and how to build a future on a foundation that was suddenly completely void.
A year on, we have rebuilt a firm foundation, filling it with a new freshness and a brave boldness and we have paved the way for exciting plans for the remainder of our lives.
And yet today, on what would have been our 12th wedding anniversary, I quietly grieve behind the scenes of what we had previously created. The only way to rebuild this new life together, for me anyway, has been to discard and sweep away the rubble of a broken first marriage.
