Thank you so much for your kind words, Dot.
The article wasn't about my ex & his personality (& if he was a nice guy or not), nor the specifics of the divorce itself. It was about sharing what I learned from MY experience (about which is the only perspective that I feel qualified to write). But to appease your concern, from my limited knowledge about his current personal life (& since we were a mis-match), he is now dating someone who appears to fit him better. As with anyone, I wish him the absolute best along his path.
Thank you for sharing that with me, Jen. Life is way too short to be miserable... & you are never 'stuck'. I think when you start looking fear straight on, & begin seeing as a tool & not a impediment, life starts to change. A sense of empowerment begins to arise that can't be quieted. Sending you love & strength, lady. You'll do beautifully - I have complete faith in you.
Thank you for sharing that, Elien. I'm so pleased that my article reminded you of that time of empowerment. For what it's worth... I'm proud of you. Be well.
It's been the most challenging year of my life but also the time of the most personal growth. Like you said, the silver lining is the amazing lessons the boys & I have learning through it all - The strength & exercises in non-attachment, understanding, and compassion. I've also written a post on it all for EJ that I'll hopefully get up soon. Stay strong, my friend. Life is one crazy, wild, beautiful ride, huh!
Ben - I'm so sorry for your pain this past year. It's been a while since we've talked. I too went through a very similar year, having divorced my husband of 10 years & working though the pain of being separated from my 3 little boys when they're with their dad. This article made me cry tears of understanding & empathy. Thank you so much for sharing, Ben. Sending loving energy your way.
Hello... I love Nature's Way EfaGold Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. You can get it at Whole Foods.
Hi there - Yes, I have read that you can use unrefined olive oil.
Thank you for this. I have had many friends who have had miscarriages & they were always scared to talk about it, thus leaving them feeling alone. I have since learned to just listen & be there for them. I hope many, many women read this post.
