They Made Another Choice About Moving Forward With You.

You are the one who can and will save YOU.

Sure I can offer inspiring words. I can pray for you. I can even talk with you.  But at the end fo the day I cannot save you. 


Decide who you want to be in this break-up... divorce... life.  You are not helpless. You are not powerless.

Stop going back for more where there is only less. Look forward. Move forward. Drop the self inflicted torture and SAVE YOURSELF.  That significant other made a different choice about you and your connection to them.  That other person made another choice about their future. That other person changed their mind about moving forward with you.

Now what are you going to do? You get to make a choice too. You get to decide who and how you want to be moving forward.

Save yourself. You can. You must.

Happy Mother's Day

If this day is tough for you, find yourself a safe place to be. If you have children and shared custody and they have to go over to the other parent's house, take this time to rest, relax or catch up on some long held dreams, or books or both! Whatever your situation, take this day as your own and enjoy it.

At The Corner of Same Old Street And Change Blvd: Which Way?

Who among us hasn't been at this crossroad?  Same Old Street and Change Blvd. Some of us hang there for eons because we are afraid to move.  We know we gotta get off Same Old Street, but the uncertainty of Change Blvd is even scarier.  Divorce has a way of forcing you down a road and although you may think you are going in a different direction you are not. What you are doing is allowing circumstances to dictate where you go, how you move and who you are.

When you are tired of holding the pain and carrying the weight of divorce, perhaps the path will become clearer.  It did for me.  The more I got centered in myself and let go of rehashing my story, I could see my way down a different road.

Tell yourself your story one last time and then drop it and take a walk down another street. And if you don't like it, take another and another and another, until you are somewhere you want to be. Don't be aimless, be focused, give some real thought to who you want to be moving forward and then move in that direction.

Let whatever fears you hold, fuel you forward.

Take a page from Dr. Suess....

From "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go..."

Never Be Afraid To Eat Alone

I would add, that God is with me in those moments of "eating alone". Eating alone is powerful... forces you to meet your fear over wine and not flinch. The more you do it the more empowered you become. In your strengthened state you will once again offer invitation to dine with....  Yes. You. Will.  And in the back of your mind and in your heart you will no longer be afraid should things go south.... Remember you've eaten alone in triumph!
