Happily Ever After Divorce: Notes of a Joyful Journey
By Allison O'Connor
Bram’s writing is engaging, honest and above all inspirational. I passed her book on to a friend who is struggling with finding her own way after her recent divorce.
Here’s an excerpt:
One day, at age forty-one, with three young children, I took a terrifying, guilt-inducing leap. After years of unhappiness, I finally found the courage to get out of my marriage.
It was hard, no question. Hard like childbirth, like building a skyscraper or perhaps demolishing one. As hard as any of the most formidable challenges I had ever faced—every college or graduate school degree, every major disruption, every relocation, every turnaround.
But then, as after childbirth, a glorious new life emerged—but this time, it was my own. After my divorce I emerged into sunlight, stunned and blinking. Disoriented, yes, and many, many times afraid. But only then did life begin. Only then did I start to piece together, for the first time ever, a life that had fresh air and laughter, challenges and triumphs. A life of outer joys, and for the first time, inner peace.
I am here to say that it can be done.
