The best thing about being divorced in my twenties is: My spirit has awoken, and in this second chance, I have learned to live life to the fullest, to experience everything you can. No fear just life.

I celebrated my divorce by: Changing my life completely, leaving my birth country to travel the world and experience all I can.

My divorce anthem is: “Stronger,” by Kelly Clarkson.

Advice for others just starting the divorce process: Believe in yourself.

If I could trash my wedding dress in any way, it would be: To swim in the ocean amongst dolphins and whales, just absolute freedom in something that captured my freedom.

Thoughts:

Love is patient, love is kind.

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 

It does not dishonor others,

It is not self-seeking,

It is not easily angered,

It keeps no record of wrongs.

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
