So much to say, so much to learn

image-2

I think the surprise that has amazed me the most about my divorce is that it has been a pathway to so many really good lessons. And even now, when the divorce feels like old news (it was final in 2007), I’m still learning and discovering things about myself and about life that I wouldn’t have otherwise. As I wrote in my book, I don’t totally love having to learn some of these lessons, but I do really appreciate feeling wiser! Wisdom is a great way to offset some of the less satisfying aspects of aging (like those permanent dark circles under my eyes that have nothing to do with lack of sleep).

So for Babble.com, I wrote an article about how divorce has made me a better parent. Why not hop over there and give it a read? Comment here or there about what rings true to you and share other lessons you’ve learned. It’s very hard to usher one’s children into heartbreak years before their peers will have to experience it, but I do still really believe there’s a way to do it that just makes them—and us—more forgiving. And yes, more wise.

  1. Just read your book and it was cathartic. It expressed so much of what I couldn’t sort out in my own mind. Thanks so much for writing it. I borrowed it from the library but have since bought my own copy to have when I need it. It’s a keeper.

  2. Hi Stacy,

    It was great chatting with you on the courtyard at the Ritz a few nights ago. :)

    I’m sorry about the recent curve balls life recently has thrown your way, but you are handling it with such wisdom and grace. I look forward to seeing where life takes you next- and what you do with it. I’m sure it will be extraordinary.

    Best,

    Lindsay
