Including those people you sometimes wish were not who they now are."
Divorce is an interesting thing. You are now mortal enemies with someone you loved dearly (in some cases). It's even more different if there are children involved. All of a sudden your children who you were able to see anytime you weren't busy are only available to hang out certain times of the month.
If you, like me, miss your kids like nothing you have ever experienced when they are not with you what do you do? You could ask the opposing parent for additional parenting time but if your situation is anything like mine you would have a better chance growing taller overnight.
So what do you do? You can ask for more parenting time through the courts and you may or may not get it but what do you do during the interim? Thought you would never ask....
This is what I've done. My twin daughters are turning six this year and since they turned three I opened an email account for them and I'll write them periodic messages. This is a way to feel an emotional connection with your children by writing them now in a perceived future. Make sure you remember the e-mail password and above all else keep it classy. Divorce is between you and your ex and should have nothing to do with your children. This email journaling should just be all about you and your child's relationship.

The Road To __________ Is Paved With Intentions
Who doesn't love a little water cooler chatter? This past Tuesday I overheard two of my colleagues wishing one another a good third quarter. One of the two was proudly professing how he had a great third quarter in 2013 and that was just a fluke and how this year was going to be terrible.
Fast forward to yesterday. I was talking to a fellow before a meeting about how his name was in a raffle to win an all expenses paid trip for two to an awesome destination. The guy proceeded to tell me how he never wins anything so he's not going to hold his breath. I sincerely and directly told him something along the lines of how his luck is going to change and told him that I would send him some positive winning vibes.
About an hour later my pal ran up to me with the biggest most sincere smile on his face carrying a large novelty ticket. "I Won, I Won" he exclaimed. We shared a celebratory moment before proceeding with our day.
Moral of the story is I'm not saying that we can predict the future all I'm saying is that if our intentions may shape our destination why not wish for what we want versus what we don't want? Try it, you might like it.
