Fresh Start (divorced and ready for a new beginning)http://www.meetup.com/Fresh-Start-divorced-and-ready-for-a-new-beginning/http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/2/8/7/global_433369799.jpeg20131230
I was looking for a meet up for people who are divorced, healed and ready for a fresh start. I found divorce support groups, but most of them seemed to be for people still going through the process (which is very important). I couldn't find one that caters to the next level. Having gone through the motions and dealt with the pain and the anger and everything that comes with it, I feel renewed and ready to start over. (Of course there is always more work to be done). I'm hoping to create a place for people who are at the same place or getting there and want to mix and mingle and are ready to find humor in the pain of the past, meet new friends and see where it leads. Men, women, single moms, single dads of all ages are welcome. This is just the beginning. I'm hoping it will grow into a vibrant group of friends (and couples) who support each other, hold each others' hands and allow ourselves a second chance at love and life.
Update: I realize a number of us have children and may not be able to go for some meet ups when they have to watch the little ones or the venues aren't kid-friendly. We'll try to have some child-friendly meet ups so the kids can come too. Feel free to suggest any by posting on the wall or sending one of the organizers an email.
