All stages of life can be good. And all things considered, I truly consider this the best time of my life so far. I feel like I'm beginning another "stage", and I intend to enjoy the heck out of it!

Girl, you've got it together! Congrats on finding the peace within and the courage to share your opinion...and begin life anew!
