The Best Worst Year of My LIfe

Someone I follow on twitter posted that 2009 was the close of the best worst year of her life. I keep thinking about that tweet and how true it is for me.

My decision to pursue a divorce came at the end of 2008. The house was sold at the beginning of 2009 and we moved into separate residences. The entire year has been one of transition: learning to be a working single mom of two and navigate the world from a different perspective.

The fact of the matter is that it's been hard as hell. Probably the most difficult year of my life. But here's the thing - commitment to the transition was the best decision I've ever made. And it's done. I did it.

If 2009 was the year of transition, then the #themeword of 2010 promises to be one of momentum. Growing my business, pursuing neglected projects; building relationships... moving forward. Full steam ahead.


  1. Cori, you hit the nail on the head. The first year is the hardest, but you've made some powerful strides in developing the life YOU want. Keep it going strong!

  2. so very proud of you. Making a HUGE life change is not easy, but I know you've learned a lot from it and even as hard as it was, you've grown from it as well. You're doing a great job and I'm excited to see where your MOMENTUM takes you. Upward and onward!

  3. LOVE that you have this concept of momentum, Cori! It feels like you are forging ahead, no matter how difficult. You seem so much happier -- carry that forward as part of your momentum. **Hugs**

  4. I'm in that transition myself. And it's crazy hard. And I'm so intensely proud of myself. Thanks for this post.
