Well well well, look who rose from the dead! Yes. Me. I’ve been off gallivanting around the world (see there is light at the end of the tunnel…’gallivanting’…. I bet some of you thought/ think you’ll never experience ‘gallivanting’ again. I sure thought that way) But you will. Oh yes you shall gallivant again. Since my divorce settled in May and I finally sorted out my visa situation, I’ve been travelling quite an amount. I had a lot of stops I wanted to make and faces that I desperately wanted to see. I definitely felt that I needed a break from my every day life here in Cape Town and so off I went to cleanse my mind and rekindle my spirit. I also decided to take a break for a few months from blogging about divorce, (sorry to those of you who were waiting for fresh blogs) but I’m back and by no means finished writing about my experiences yet. (and the dating game, you guys!? Good Lord, the dating game is hysterically funny and so entertaining, if you can just take a second to find the humour in amongst the desperation)
I’ve been reading all of the emails and comments that you have been sending me and thank you so much for taking the time to reach out. It always surprises me how similar and also how extremely sad some of my readers stories are. My heart breaks for those of you that are right in the middle of your divorce at the moment. Its such a difficult time but chin up, you’re going to get through this. I’ve decided to alter my blog page a little bit and I have added a ‘testimonials’ page. I would love to share your stories, as I believe that us women need to talk when we are going through something testing. I think we need to talk at the best of times, so we certainly need to talk at the worst of times. “Here here”. It is so important and it also helps with the healing process. I want TGGG to be a place where you can share your story and a place where women (and men) will listen. I think by sharing some of your stories on The Green Girls Guide, it will also help other readers understand that they are not alone.
Please feel free to submit your experience of divorce and I will publish it to The Green Girls Guide To Divorce, under ‘testimonials’. You can email your story to firstname.lastname@example.org Please let me know if you would rather I put your name to your story or if you would prefer to remain anonymous.
Lots of love
