1-11: My Divorce Anniversary

It has been 11 years since I received the papers in the mail, stamped Jan-11-2011.

It was my life choice, and should be celebrated, in my opinion.

There is no ‘e’ in judgment. There is no shame in divorce.

I wrote some of the details of those years in my memoir, Love And War In The Hamptons.

Divorce is not a dirty word. It is an ending of a contract that is no longer working for both parties.

Some of my marital experiences are treasures I will hold dear until the end, while still being grateful I am divorced.

Other memories have left scars, still I celebrate my bravery in leaving an unhealthy partner.

I wish you all the strength to follow your heart and values.
