Paulette Rigo recently interviewed me on her Thriving in Chaos Project podcast – the episode is called, “Can An Attorney Teach You How to Land on Your Feet?”
Well, that’s an interesting question. Of course, I’m not just “an attorney.” I’m Joy – with all of my life experience and my opinions and my genes (and jeans) and the things that make me me. So I don’t know if “an attorney” can teach you how to land on your feet because that random attorney only has the tools of the law, and, as I said in the interview, I don’t think the law was meant for families – or for people facing family transitions.
But Joy? Well, as you know, I’ve been through some stuff and my life has been thrown into chaos a few times, and I’ve learned a thing or two about bouncing back and landing on my feet, and I’m glad to share that with my students and my clients. You can listen to it here.
I’m also writing to tell you something else … I’ve been running on all cylinders and it was catching up with me, so I’m going to take the rest of the summer to hibernate a bit (wrong season, I know) and to regroup.
I’m planning to get some exercise, catch up with old friends and new books, eat my veggies, and take a break from social media. I’ll still be mediating (after all, that’s my bread and butter) and finishing up some big projects. The online divorce course is still running pretty much on its own (tell all your friends!) – but I won’t be doing much outreach. I’ll miss this weekly dialog with you!
So before I go, I have a quick question for you – to help me think about how to gear up in the fall. I want to know if these emails are valuable to you as they are or how I can make them more useful. Just hit reply – I promise to read your response!
Would you like more:
- Info about the divorce process and tips for making the divorce experience go more smoothly
- General thoughts about narrating and divorce (like I’ve been doing)
- Something else. (what?) __________________________
Have a great summer! I’ll be back before you know it.
