Hi there, I’m Melissa. I am a divorced mother of two lovely little creatures, a Project Manager by day and somewhere in between that and being a mom, I find myself writing the stories that have defined my life. I started this blog in the Spring of 2015 when my husband announced that our marriage was over and that he was moving out. Our children were 6 months and 4 years old at that time. Writing and sharing these stories as I was going through this heartbreaking process provided an outlet for me, and helped me sort through all the confusing and traumatizing emotions I was experiencing at that time. However now, my hope is that as others stumble upon my stories, it gives them a sense of comfort and solidarity. Divorce is hard. There is no reason to do it on your own, there are so many of us who have trudged this path before you. You are not alone. Divorce is just another fork in your road, another dot along your life journey. And only once you have found your way through it will you be able to look back and recognize it for the gift that it is, and see that it’s purpose was to bring you to where you were meant to be.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
