So, today, I finally did it – I sold my engagement ring. Its been on the back of my mind for months (honestly more like a year and a half now, ever since the seperation… “what the hell do with this thing now?”).
Today, I went to a jewelry store and just sold it. I felt a huge sigh of relief. More than I expected to feel. Honestly, I’m so relieved to be done with this part of my life. Selling the ring seemed more important since I’ve changed my name. I really just want to be done with the past, with the part of my life that was unhappy; unfullfilled… Now, single with two cats, i’m so much more content and happy with my life. I never thought I would be single at 38 …. single with two cats none-the-less… but I am happy, how lucky am I to be 38 and truly happy?!?!?
Anyway, the fancy pants diamond ring is gone…. and honestly, I couldn’t be happier. Materials things cannot and do not make me happy… I’d be happy with a rented trailer by the sea, or better yet, a lavendar farm in northern/central California!!
Good-bye sparkely diamond, I will not miss you.
