What’s a celebration without a cake? Along with my ex-wife’s wedding dress and the divorce gift registry, nothing says I don’t love you any more better than a snarky cake. I’m not recommending hate and negativity. But I do recommend, whenever possible, that you try not taking yourself so seriously.
Celebration is an important acknowledgment of a job well done. I’m not saying we want to celebrate divorce. It’s usually difficult and sad. I am saying we can celebrate our new lives regardless of how we got there.
My suggestions for celebrating:
Laughter is a great antidote to anger and depression. Part of wellness is the ability to laugh often, and often laugh at yourself.
Have a post-divorce party. Maybe everyone tells their favorite funny story about you.
Take a vacation with friends and spend one day doing everything your way.
You find something to do in celebration of your new life. And yuk it up.
