I got some 'splainin' to do .........

So, I’ve been asked by a few people “Why Supernatural?” It is easy to understand where I came up with the optimist part. But Supernatural takes a little explaining, I guess.

When I was thinking about starting this new blog, I couldn’t use a name similar to my old blog, because it had nothing to do with what I wanted to share. I knew that there were many moms in my situation, faced with raising their children and no longer being married to the father or never having been married to the father in the first place. I knew that many moms faced tougher situations than myself. I watched as one of my best friends went through a very tough and emotional separation and divorce and it broke my heart for her. Unfortunately, her procedure was more common than not. Apparently it is a general rule that divorce be negative. I hate that rule.

So the idea of “friendly divorce” was an alien concept to some people. The term is in itself an oxymoron. Divorce has an automatic negative connotation. How in the world can you add the word “friendly” in front of it? But it is possible. It does not have to be such an alien perception. Regardless, it is and will remain an instant depressing notion that divorce can only be bad. My only hope is that more people can start to appreciate that they have more power than they realize to change “how” they get divorced.

So there you have it, Supernatural explained.

Happy Living All!

P.S. I just love this quote:

What a lovely surprise to finally discover how unlonely being alone can be. – Ellen Burstyn
