Dear Single Parents,
So we made the big decision to leave an unhappy marriage, we have figured out who gets what, and most importantly, who gets custody of the children and who gets to decide on care and control of them. Then, why is nobody happier?
I have learnt nobody tells us what happens post-divorce. What to expect, how to deal with our insecurities, our worries, our anxieties. So we deal with it the best way we can. We do the best we can. We live the best way we know how.
Then little things start to creep up. You notice your child, or children are distancing themselves. Maybe they are just growing up. And then there are days they sit with you and ask you the hard questions, and you answer them the best way you can. Or worst yet, you are busy with work just trying to make ends meet, and your child is being taken care of by someone else who has now taken over as the parent. You have lost your place. Or so you feel.
Why is it that we fight for the happiness of ourselves and our children and yet nobody is happier?
Are we living or just existing?
Are we hearing our children or really listening?
Are they connecting or disconnecting?
Do we just give presents and not choosing to be present?
Spend a day with other single parents and their children in a daytreat (only because a retreat sounded so serious!) where we cut the small talk and encourage learning both ways.
Come experience the present.
Saturday April 4 from 10am to 4pm. Lunch will be provided.
The workshop will cost $160 for each single parent + child combo.
We hope to see you soon!
Adele (Mumpreneur) and Angela (Firestarter)
