    Dear Jessica,
    I received your e-mail about your book and new blog today. I met you years ago at one of Jane Pollak’s weekend retreats. I think it was about 5 years ago. Your “Come As You Will Be” seems to have come true for you. Congratulations – this is very inspiring!
    Best to you,
    Sharon McCormick

    Hi Jessica,

    You are an inspiration to divorced women everywhere!

    This is my story:

    I moved to Westchester from New Jersey last year with my 2 children after going through a very painful divorce. We didn’t know anyone in the area, but I wanted/needed a fresh start. I’m happy to say that my children and I have made a lot of wonderful friends, and we absolutely love living here!

    After 12 years as a stay-at-home mom, I found myself needing to go back to work. After looking into a variety of options I decided to start a business, that I would own, in the the network marketing field. Arbonne is a leader in the network marketing industry. Starting my business with them allowed me to earn a living while still being able to stay home with my children. Donald Trump & Richard Branson both recently started network marketing companies, & Warren Buffet bought Pampered Chef – I figured if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for me!

    Arbonne is a 29-year old botanically based skin care/nutrition/health and wellness company formulated in Switzerland. Their products are never tested on animals, safe, beneficial, hypoallergenic, vegan and results-oriented! (Please check out this article on Arbonne’s flagship anti-aging system recently featured in UK Vogue: In these socially conscious times, people are looking to use better, safer, GREENER products.

    I was looking for something meaningful to do and found it with Arbonne. Although my business is to educate people about the quality of these products, my goal is to build a team with people who have similar needs and share my values. Many of the women in this company create a substantial income stream in the nooks and crannies of their lives. In fact, there are some very successful doctors, lawyers, stay-at-home moms, etc. who are all building businesses with Arbonne – and loving it.

    I know that for some women, divorce means having to go back to work, & that can be scary. It would be my pleasure to speak with anyone who might be facing this situation.

    Thank you.

    Dear Jessica,

    It seems that I know you. What you said, your thoughts, and some of your experiences were replica of my life. I’ve been happily divorced for 5 years.

    I tried to hold the marriage for years, painting the picture of devoted love and happiness. Inside I lived a loneliness that brought me to my knees as I begged for the energy to be the happy mom my kids expected. In the beginning of my decision process, this was the hardest question for me to answer: “How bad should I feel before I give up?” In the end I realized that this was the real question I needed to answer, “How emotionally dead can I become and still interact effectively with the world and my children?” The energy I was putting into trying to hold on to the marriage took everything; I had lost the person I wanted to be in this pile of pain.

    These questions helped me decide to go through my divorce: Am I able to mother my children, care for them and love them the way I want to within the marriage? What are my children learning about love, marriage and relationship when they watch me? How would I feel if my children grew up and had the same marriage that I had? What am I most afraid of?

    One day when I was feeling more lost than usual I wrote a description of the person I remembered myself to be at twenty-one. I cried the rest of the day. My husband hadn’t taken that person from me; I gave it to him one piece at a time. When I read the description I understood that I had to claim those pieces of myself and either move forward with the divorce or completely accept the condition of my marriage. I also knew from experience that the only person I had any control over was myself.

    I am very happy now, still single, working hard, but oh, so worth it.

    Thank you for your book, for the affirmation.

      Dear Cecilia – What a beautifully written post! I so appreciate your taking the time to write. Would you mind if I quote from it in an upcoming blog post, and cite your name? The subject of how divorce can be the BEST thing one can do for one’s children is an important one. Jessica

        I don’t mind at all, Jessica.

        By the way, congratulations on your remarriage!

        I hope to meet you in person one of these days.
