The road to recovery
Have you ever lost someone that when you lost them, it shook you to your core?
Made you face what you are made of?
At this time, three years ago, I was in Kauai mending my broken heart. I had just left a 5 year relationship and I was pretty devastated. It was mutual, had to be done. Still hurt like a mother.
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.
I hurt so bad, I wanted to run. So run I did. I booked Kauai because I wanted to go to the beach. Baby1 (oldest daughter) begged me to stay in the States. She was afraid I would end up on CSI.
I left a week later.
I admit, the first few days were hard. Especially mealtime. My theme of my trip became "just me" as I was asked "how many" at the restaurants and my answer was always "just me."
I ended up having a fabulous time. I took a helicopter ride. I was terrified to do this but that is exactly why I did it.
I hiked some awesome trails.
I hiked the "little grand canyon" of Kauai
I saw these on the way
And finally made it to my destination

Some other great memories:
Rockin Red Freedom!
Sun bathing Sea Lion
I left some pieces of my heart in Kauai. Buried some of my past so I could move on to my future.
I know I will never be the same.
In a lot of ways, I'm better.
