This past weekend, I officially got divorced and this is your personal invitation (read WAKE-UP CALL!!) to do so as well! I know what many of you are thinking, that you thought I got divorced several years ago and have been single ever since. Well, this time around I'm proud to say, I just got divorced...again! I know, I know, no need to say it...because I can just hear you now, "But Kari I already AM officially divorced," or, "I can't get divorced if I've never been married!" Nope, doesn't need mentioning because I'm talking about something bigger...and MUCH better. And something we all can permanently estrange ourselves from. Did you know there is actually such a thing as a 'good divorce'? Yup, there is because if you're anything like me, you've housed a nagging, annoying and at times abusive guest in that mind of yours' that has taken up valuable real estate, rent free I might add, for far too long! Not only has this wretched, evil voice who screams at you that you're a big-fat-good-for-nothing-zero-who-will-never-find-love stood in your way and caused you to self-doubt, this bastard has actually fed you a bunch of lies over and over again that you could have sworn was the truth. And that just sucks! No...I say NO MORE. No more allowing this faux confidante to allude you and make you think you are anything less than amazing, valuable, lovable, and the only rockin' being on the planet that makes you oh-so-fabulous you. If you've listened to nothing else I've ever spouted before, hear me now: It is time, today is the day, there is no other time than right here, right NOW - to get divorced from your STORY. He is not serving you. Not only is he lying to you and holding you back, he's bringing you more of what you do not want. And just like with myself, I'm drawing a hard line in the sand with you. Should you decide to take the plunge, sign on the dotted line and divorce your story too, that means D-I-V-O-R-C-E-D; as in, do not go back for nostalgic, long converstations to reminisce of days of yore or late night booty calls. NOPE...you are divorced which means, no going back. Period. This is the best break up I've ever experienced and I hope that you, too, will put a big ol' "The end" at the back of your final chapter as well. Afterall, how can you look forward to your abundant, joyous future if you keep reading past chapters? Good riddance to bad rubish! Happy signing my soon-to-be fellow divorcees!
