‘Navigating’

This is the word I used when people asked me how I was doing and the truth was “I got out of bed this morning and I’m not crying right now and so I call that a win.”

‘A choice with challenging consequences'

This is how I described my decision to marry my dear first husband (DFH). Definitely not “a mistake.”

‘Business Hannah'

This is how my coworker (and now close friend) and I would describe who showed up to the office when I was preoccupied navigating the challenging consequences of my choice to marry DFH.
