4 years ago today was one of the hardest days of my life. I packed one bag for myself and one bag for my 6-month-old and I left a marriage that was no longer serving either one of us. I was terrified and had no idea how I would ever be able to do it.
After 4 years of digging deeper than I ever thought was humanly possibly, I can, without a single doubt, say to others that you can do the hard things that scare the shit out of you. You can leave the relationship. You can write the book. You can go on that first date after getting your heart broken. You can heal.
Finding myself again has given me the freedom to let myself have the life I’ve always wanted with people who love me without question the way that I’ve always wanted to be loved and the way I’ve always wanted to love. So, this is basically just an overly mushy shout out to them. Find your people and love the hell out of them. (Also, I love this picture that @eklett took because it looks like one big happy family just enjoying each other and that’s exactly what we are) | #LifePostDivorce #WeCanDoHardThings #Family #Friends #ParkNightsAreTheBestNights

One year I imagine I'll stop counting, but this year today still marks the (now third year) anniversary of my divorce. Last year at this time I was reflecting and resetting across the globe in Greece with some incredible people. 🇬🇷 This year I'm stuck at home but opened some Greek wine from our trip and really appreciating the wonderful life I have that is full of love, friends, family, adventure, and so much joy. I truly am the happiest I've ever been in my life. I'm so very grateful to know so many amazing people!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Today, six years after my initial separation, and from its very start, my ex-husband and I have been able to share our two girls equally and generously, spend time together on a weekly basis, and even vacation as a family. My ex is good friends with my husband, the man I left him for, and a present and engaged godfather to my third child. After living in the same neighborhood, sharing the girls equally and seeing them daily by walking them to school, for the sake of my happiness, my ex-husband gave us his blessing to move to New York City from Toronto, Canada in the fall of 2017. This allowed me to finally be able to live together with my husband as he had been commuting for work. My ex committed to and has been flying down from Toronto to visit the children every single weekend, staying in our home as our guest, taking our then 3-year-old to a weekly music time on Saturday mornings, often planning weekend family outings, and enjoying time together. This amazing outcome was achieved despite the painful and unexpected circumstances in which I abruptly ended our 17-year marriage, quickly re-coupled, and had a child with my new partner, (now husband). My children were saddened by the divorce, but not hurt or wounded. They thrived socially and academically from the start, as my ex and I were “there” together for them, rarely missing special moments in their lives. This outcome has been so amazing for us that I would love to help and inspire others to achieve the same in any way I can: writing a book, divorce coaching, speaking opportunities, and podcast interviews.

First of all thank you everyone for all your sweet excited wishes.

I was hesitant to share it because so many of my dear friends have been praying for their own little one for many years or have recently lost one. Please know that you are not forgotten. You have been such stellar examples of how to do life!!! Another reason I wanted to share however is that many of you have been with me through what was a really dark time in my life. Yes you may still think that “internet” friends are not real. Sometimes true, sometimes not. But when the divorce was finalized, as much as I was happy for everyone else still fighting for their marriage, finding love and starting a new life, I had come to terms that I wasn’t going to look for someone else. “Last thing I needed” I told myself. I was already blessed with my two little ones and wouldn’t have anymore. Accepting defeat and my share in it was hard. But it happened. Learned and lived through it.

My pregnancies have usually been pretty easy. However it wasn’t till months, even years later that I realized I had post-partum depression. That was even harder for me to accept. To admit that it had taken me so long to ask for help. Taken me so long to see that this wasn’t “me”. Letting it mar those early years with my first two. Knowing that I could never take/relive those years with them was really devastating. So I resolved to make every little moment count. It became all about the little things. When, my dear Aaron came into the picture, perspectives had changed. I was a little “wiser”. He was actually the one person that I fully disclosed everything that had happened or not happened because of PPD. There was so much shame. So many regrets. But there was also relief and freedom. Knowing that there was room for growth. So we looked forward to adding to our family. Then my body kinda started breaking down 😳. => cont. in comments

I'm so incredibly happy to see my #christmascactus blooming for the first time since I moved it during my divorce three years ago. It's good to see it be a happy plant again. 🥰

"I’m met with relief that I had the awareness, the strength, the commitment to change my life because it wasn’t easy, but it was right. I know the guilt isn’t over. I know it will bubble up again and I’ll have to talk sense into myself, the same as I would my closest friend. I know I’ll have to give myself compassion.
I might always feel some guilt at changing the shape of my family, but I also know that I’ll be a happier, healthier person ― and thus, a better mother ― because I did just that. That’s what I come back to each time the guilt takes hold. And I know that the more firmly I ground myself in this new life, the more that waves of confidence in that will come."
I can strongly relate to this story by Guest Writer Sarah Bregel, who writes for HUFFPOST.

Leaving was the harder option, but definitely the right one...Melanie xx

Thanks so so much to Sara for sharing this advice...this is divorce month and so many people need support in divorce. I wish I had known that divorce coaches even were a thing when I was breaking up. Sara is listed on our website as a top divorce coach so check her link out. She's amazing!

Always in the midst of our divorce storm and the unravelling of it and when starting new relationships which can take our attention away from our children, please remember spend time to stop and think about how they might be feeling. Ask them. I know im guilty of forgetting to do this when i get wrapped up in my own life. This article is a useful insight into the mind of children of divorce and how we can help. It's not all just about us grownups. Easy to forget about the innocent bystanders of divorce; say it now:
CHILDREN YOU ARE LOVED. we adults sometimes forget that. We are Sorry 😕 Melanie xxx
