In early 2012, I decided to end my 6 year marriage. I had been a stay-at-home wife/mom for 6 years. I was frightened, overwhelmed, and I had no idea what to do. When I first contacted Mindy, I was impressed by her compassion and her willingness to listen. She didn't rush me during our initial interview; she even gave me advice before I had given her a penny. After speaking with her there was no doubt, I wanted her to represent me. She helped me handle the entire divorce with grace, dignity, and love. My ex-husband and I are still friends, which makes it easier to care for our son.
Divorce is frightening; it's a huge change in lifestyle. I was scared and unsure, but I knew that my life wasn't what it could be. I was miserable, depressed, and quickly gaining weight. I was capable of more; there were bigger things I was meant to do. I looked at my life and decided that it wasn't going to be this way anymore. This was my chance to change things and maybe discover who I really was.
Now, not even a year later, I've lost 40lbs, I'm a published author (1 short story and a contract with a publisher for 3 books), a small business owner, and a registered yoga teacher. In addition, I'm more "me" than I have ever been and I've never been happier. And my son now has two happy parents to take care of him instead of two miserable fighting parents. He's happier too.
So a thank you to myself for being bold enough to say "It's not going to be this way!" and a thank you to Mindy for helping me take the leap."
