Two years ago was two years ago. A Pocket Call ago. A lifetime ago.
Today, on the very same day, because the Universe loves to make points with symmetry and signs, I am proud to celebrate the launch ofDivorcedMoms.com and announce MY DIVORCE.
The Universe must also love technicalities, because until today, the day my former spouse signed the divorce papers (according to him), I was not TECHNICALLY divorced. Given I’m not at all tech-ish, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I don’t really care about being technically divorced. I do want to know when it’s all done tho, because I want to be able to stand next to all these other wonderful women and say, I am a divorced Mom, too. But apparently the Universe wants everything to be square, insuring that I would not be writing under false pretenses.
These other women 🙂 are the ones that are part of the foundation of a website I truly hope all of you will contribute to in some fashion – as a writer, a commenter, a reader, man or woman, divorced or not. As a supporter of His Giant Mistake, as you have been for so long.
After months of hard work spearheaded by Laura Peck and Command Media, DivorcedMoms has launched as a great resource for divorced women, a website that mirrors my own beliefs that despite the pain of divorce we can spin magic with our choices. We can make divorce the beginning of a life led without Ego at the helm, a life that celebrates vulnerability and honesty and loving our selves. A life of conscious choices. A life of bliss.
DivorcedMoms is a community that will thrive with your participation, kittens. You’ve selflessly shared with me your divine wisdom over these past two years, speeding me along my journey of healing from the pain of infidelity and the challenge of divorce. Now your words of love and support can affect a broader audience. Join the site, become a contributor, and continue to stay close to me as I climb mountains, literally and figuratively.
The only change to the way we interact with each other is that you will need to register at DivorcedMoms to comment on my posts. I am asking you to please take the time to do that because without our banter, your wisdom and tough love, the way you make me ponder, our laughs, without your overall hotness, the experience of HGM for me would neverbe the same.
I have your IP addresses. I will find your homes. And then I will whimper at your back door. Let’s not let it get that ugly.
Together we have created magic at HGM. Keep it going. Everything else will be the same. Except your words will reach so many more people that will benefit from your wisdom as I have over these past several months. HGM will continue to be a real time account of my journey, stumbles, falls, thrills, flights, lessons learned and ignored until they could be ignored no longer…summits, here and abroad.
Just wait until I tell you about the book on Tibet, the woman with the alpine sticks and the fireman. Oh, the fireman.
Is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
A lifetime ago. Two years ago. Every word written and read has led me to here. Right here, right now. And there is no other place I’d rather be. Please stay close. Some really exciting experiences are brewing for us to share.
Thank you, kittens. With only the written word I cannot express to you how much you mean to me. It simply can’t be done.
I love you.
PS: For the next few weeks as the transit is complete, comment here as always. I will keep you posted every step of the way as to when the shift is final. The URL of HGM will continue to land you here. And on DivorcedMoms HGM will have its own page with a link from the blogger masthead. No growing pains, I promise. XO
