In Hollywood, an equitable divorce settlement means each party getting fifty percent of publicity.
In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other's affairs, who 'come out' together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society.

NO CHALLENGE, NO CHANGE ! Forget the no pain no gain thing. If it's pain, then STOP! I made up the phrase 'no challenge no change'
over 15 years ago when I realized it was not the pain that made one change, but the challenge that was overcome. It started out with
references to working out and then I realized I could apply that idea to every part of my life, including motherhood, relationships, school,
work, etc. I will continue to live by this phrase and hope to instill it in my daughter as well. It has gotten me through so many hard times,
including divorce, losing my mom 3 years ago, and while being in school for the last 7 years... getting closer to that PhD every semester.
There have been an insane amount of challenges I have dealt with in my life, so my goal is that the changes that result will in turn have an
insane impact, not only on myself, but my daughter, and everyone I come into contact with

When people divorce, it’s always such a tragedy. At the same time, if people stay together it can be even worse.
A divorce is like an amputation; you survive, but theres less of you.
