Breakup Essays: Foreword

Don’t you wish that you could tailor a relationship breakup to suit your needs? Kind of like relationship dissolution à la carte. The dumper could send you an invitation to download a breakup app which would give you choices on how you would like to conduct a breakup. 
For the more dysfunctional couples, they could opt to engage in a raucous screaming match in which the app would after a matter of five minutes, automatically dial the cops. Passive-aggressive couples could use the breakup app to send hurtful messages to each other which are scheduled to arrive at random times of the day. 
Pragmatic couples could use the app to settle up financial obligations, draft up non- disparagement agreements, and to forward mail. Finally, the emotional unavailable couple could use the app for the sole purposes of breaking up with one another. Why speak to each other when using an app is so much more convenient?
Unfortunately, you do not get to pre-plan how your breakups will come to be. We just stumble and bumble our way through a relationship in a haphazard way. Ultimately, hoping for the best result which varies depending on our overall goals.
The breakup stories outlined in this e-book have been altered to protect the privacy of the people involved.  I have no doubt that most readers can relate with the breakup scenarios being presented in the book. 
 I am not a licensed therapist but, I have gone through or witnessed up close many different types of breakup situations. Over the years, I have gained much-needed wisdom from these various breakup scenarios. Also, I wanted to write material about breakups which were some place between the land of empowerment and reality. So, you will not find bitterness and “down with love” rhetoric within these essays. 

But, let’s face it sometimes it take a while for your Divine Partner to show up and during this time you will enter into relationships with other people. People whom are not your Divine Partner. In fact, some of these folks are the furtherest thing from the very definition of divine. Yet, they are brought into your life to teach you something about yourself or relationships in general.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
