Chapter 2 Intro – “Calendaring”
Book: “The Smart Gal’s Guide thru Divorce; What Lawyers don’t tell you.”
Your Calendar will keep the details of the divorce process
organized for your reference.
Let’s take a look at this.
Let me explain.
You will find the days ahead will fly by.
Your days may become more like a “blurrrr.”
For most of us, when in a time of change or in a time of concern,
we’ll call our mother, or call our sister.
Call our brother or call our best friend. Good idea.
Those close to you care about you and can be a very important shoulder to lean on.
We all need to call on someone that we can depend on to help us through
Most of the time, for most of us, we have a family member to call.
Family is a great place to get some help!
In addition to calling on family for sharing and caring,
Call on us.
Let us be a help. Divorce Buddys.
This reminds me of one of our Divorce Buddys.
We’ll call her Hope.
Hope had been trying to hold her marriage together.
While crying her heart out, after many years of marriage,
one day, Hope came to her conclusion.
Their seven year marriage was broken beyond repair.
Hope decided that the condition of her marriage
had reached a point that was too hurtful and unhealthy
for her to continue.
But Hope did not know where to go from there.
She wondered how to move forward.
She did not know where to begin.
Whenever Hope called on her sister for help, it was a good call.
Her sister listened to a variety of questions and concerns.
Hope’s sister cares, and we all need that kind of help from a sister or a friend.
It’s a natural benefit that Hope would feel better after a long talk,
because she expressed her thoughts
and received some comfort.
But Hope needs more than that. With every phone call, Hope shared her tears,
her fears and various random comments of concern.
Hope needs to keep track of all this in order to continue to make progress.
After her phone call is over, how should Hope continue from that point?
We recommend Hope list her concerns during her discussions in order to keep a
more accurate recall list.
Hope is best equipped to “Calendar” her concerns while she is speaking with her sister.
On her calendar,
Hope should take notes and reflect on the suggestions she gains from her sister.
Hope can then quickly revisit her list of questions and consult with
the right professionals in order to find her best answers.
This new dedicated calendar is your smart tool.
Any full-sized calendar will work that is scheduled for the current year, but
we recommend you purchase a new calendar with a full-sized monthly display page.
Even if this new calendar started a few months past, don’t be concerned
about the start date. Just begin to calendar and keep notes chronicled beginning now.
This calendaring will provide a reference tool to walk with you through the process.
You will be putting thoughts into action, and you will need to take notes to
plan ahead, prepared to be aware of your concerns, conflicts, appointments
Here is a simplified over-view …
Smart to Calendar the following:
- Calendar the Dates of your Legal Progress
- Calendar to keep note of your Legal Costs
- Calendar to keep a note of any Conflicts
- Calendar your Child’s Events, School Costs, Medical Costs
