“We are now divorcing but I don’t regret my choice. We deeply loved each other in our 20’s”

I’m 40 years old. I don’t feel it and I love it that way.

I often look back at my 20’s and smile fondly.

I crammed a lot of life into those years.

I flew to Australia for love. I learned my first love-related lesson during that experience. Choices matter. I eventually chose that he was not my life partner. This was a good choice. It led me to my husband.

I chose to marry my husband at 23 years old and 7 months pregnant.

This was a rash hormonal choice but after 16 years of marriage, a choice worth making. We are now divorcing but I don’t regret my choice. We deeply loved each other in our 20’s and had 2 more beautiful children all before 30.

I chose a different kind of love then, motherly love.

I discovered myself.

I chose to grow and learn through the good and bad times. Love is what takes you through life. I feel that being in your 20’s is where the choice of love can blossom.

I know it did for me.
