This is the post excerpt.
‘Today expect something good to happen to you no matter what occurred yesterday. Realize the past no longer holds you captive. It can only continue to hurt you if you hold on to it. Let the past go. A simple abundant world awaits.’ Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Who are you?” said the caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I —I hardly know, sir, just at present — at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must’ve changed several times since then.” – Lewis Carroll “Alice in Wonderland”
Can you, my dear reader, answer the question, who are you? Our answers reflect our jobs, our relationships, or what? Please take a moment to reflect your response. Thank you for honoring yourself today.
Do you express your emotions? Do you write in your journal? I wrote a fifty word story entitled “I Am.”
Hearing not, ‘I do,’
Having not a clue,
Asking the big question, why,
Realizing a final good-bye,
Knowing not a single forevermore,
Opening my dusty jewelry box drawer,
Removing my tarnished wedding ring,
Finding my painful words to sing,
Knowing my ex-husband was gay,
Feeling free and I am faraway!

Divorce is the legal breakup of marriage, one of the major life stressful events. How does one manage stress? One suggestion is to follow this blog for information on healing the mind, body, and spirit which does not occur during the divorce proceedings.
During the divorce proceedings, we women, have the surge of adrenaline and manage all aspects of our lives. Management is seen as caring for our children, helping our elderly parents, working, attending college courses, even caring for our homes and doing other countless tasks. Additionally, we are extending to respond to all of the divorce lawyer’s demanding copies of the marriage certificate, mortgage documents, car titles, the last electric bill and the list continues. Also, our friends and families give their advice about our divorces and their known outcomes. Without realizing it’s time to settle the divorce, we are sitting in the divorce hearing, we listen to those harsh, unloving words, “the Divorce is granted.”
Leaving the divorce hearing, we attempt to resume our lives as divorced women. Struggling to adjust is seen as we are working at our jobs, raising our children, caring for elderly parents and the list goes yet again. Then, the arrival of the painful document stating, “Divorce granted.”
These words evolve any one of the following five emotions ranging from denial, anger, depression, bargaining and acceptance described by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ five stages of grief.
This blogger has chosen to look at the five stages after divorce slightly different than that of Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. The newly identified stages embrace the healing of the mind, body and spirit. These stages include the crime, the slime, the grime, the time and the prime. The crime is a useful surviving method to deny that the divorce occurred. The slime is having anger towards the ex-spouse and ourselves. Trying to figure out how to cope is the grime. Feeling depressed is taking the time to resolve the pain of the mind, body and spirit. Finally, the prime is seen as the woman emerges to her new healthy mind, body and spirit.
I extend an invitation to you on traveling down these paths to heal our minds, bodies and spirits. Yes, these paths, not the ‘yellow brick road,’ will be revisited and filled with stress. However, you and I recognize that we are not alone. Come and join me on this journey, this blog, to heal our mind, body and spirit.
