Bitter Thanksgiving? Here are songs to help celebrate that breakup

1 comments
 
Ahhh, Thanksgiving.

Thursday will be my first holiday officially divorced.  The last few months have provided me an opportunity to truly reflect on my life. Amid the uncertainty of the future, I have so much for which to be grateful. But for a few minutes, I will have a bitter Thanksgiving before reminding myself of the better Thanksgiving I will be celebrating with my daughter (and without, politely put, the “big turkey” or any of the extra trimmings).

I know finding my true self is one blessing that has come out of this divorce. To quote from Twitter, 
"Sorry, I’m not Adele. I don’t wish the best for you nor do I want to find someone like you."
The journey was bitter. But I was urged to confidently continue and felt empowered because of loved ones, indulgent meals and music.  Bitterness accomplishes nothing. But this past resentment made me the person I am today. So for a few minutes come Thursday, I will play the music that helped me define who I am and get me through the heartache.

  1. Don't forget the gay anthem - "freedom" by George Michael. It was always my go-to during break ups...and also just when I want to dance!

    Hugs to you and Amara this Thanksgiving!
