I have an awesome collection of Starbucks mugs-mostly the travel kind, no handle, double wall. I think they are all limited editions. I didn’t know they were limited editions. I didn’t even know there were more than a couple of designs. And I really didn’t know this wo...

Once in a while I feel like writing a love note to my ex, and now is one of those times. This may be because I feel like killing him so much of the time, so when I feel love, I want to sing it out to everyone. He has an incredible power that he just doesn’t even realiz...

I’m in the airport, early for a change, waiting to fly back home. Just spent three days visiting my oldest at college for family weekend. I hadn’t seen him since August-the longest two and half months of my life, and the shortest three days. Oh, I love that kid!

A few days ago a woman tried to tell me that I wasn’t a feminist because I chose to stay home with my kids. She obviously took pride in the word, and was either putting down my life choices or excluding me from her club. I didn’t make the cut.

I’ve always thought that I...

Let’s add one more topic to the list of highly controversial issues in America today: stay at home moms. I’ve seen people get as reactive to this as abortion, religion, or racism. And like these other topics, any argument surrounding it is fueled by emotion and rarely...

So many women, often after having been through a number of bad relationships, experiences, or divorce, have gotten to a point where they begin to see men as a single entity and as a magnet for all of their anger and hurt. I understand how this happens, and how hard it...

Since the Vegas shootings, I have felt bombarded from every side with controversial and emotional issues. So many feelings have been stirred up that I had to take a step back from writing. I have felt tongue tied, afraid to upset others, maybe more afraid to explore ho...

I was channel surfing yesterday as I ran on the treadmill (basically the only time I watch TV, but since I do it a lot, I tend to watch a lot) and came across a show I’d never seen (a rarity). I watched about 15 minutes, but I’ve been thinking about it ever since. A Ni...

I woke up this morning in a hotel room, and like many other Americans, the first thing I did was grab my phone. Immediately I saw the many news notifications about the Las Vegas shootings. Mixed into the middle of all the red notices was a green text message from my da...

"Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed."  --Thich Nhat Hanh

Most of us can probably agree that self awareness can bring a needed sense of peace after enduring life altering and traumatic events such as divorce. What isn’t often discus...

I’m Zoe. I’m a mother and I’m divorced. Along the journey I’ve gotten degrees and certifications (bleh), I’ve been a personal trainer, marketer, consultant, nutritional coach, dating coach, writer, runner, cook, the list goes on. In all I've had varying degrees of success, but I've got the parenting and divorce down pat (ha)!


Relationships aren’t over as soon as you sign the papers, and the strange mix of emotions and steps you go through with a divorce are oddly the very things that can lead you to finding your best self and living your most fulfilling life in EVERY AREA. The sooner you realize this, find the resources to help get you there, and connect with those who understand, the quicker your path to contentment and hope, which is nirvana in my eyes.
