The Power of Prayers, Positive Thoughts and Pixie Dust

The Power of Prayers, Positive Thoughts and Pixie Dust

welcomeI am rolling out the welcome mat and asking for all three right now!

Through an incredible turn of events that began with a woman in Santa Barbara reading my book, I was put in contact with an ah-ma-zing local attorney who may be able to assist me with my upcoming trial. I have been self-represented for the past 3.5 years and by most accounts, I have done well on my own.  The two-day trial on April 10th and 11th is fast approaching and to have an attorney in my corner would be the answer to my daily prayers.

I have worked SO hard to get to the place I am right now.  I just need that one person (with a law degree!!!) who will believe in me.  I have fought really hard to obtain a new parenting evaluation and hope to have the results within a week.  I feel that this trial is the final piece to my puzzle and while I am not naive enough to think that  this is the end—I am hopeful enough to think that this will set the foundation for any future issues in our case.

I spoke to this attorney by phone today and I am incredibly optimistic.  I could not have been aligned with a more competent attorney had I advertised my specific needs on a flashing billboard.  I had a good feeling from the moment that we started talking and was literally jumping up and down when I got off the phone.  We are meeting again on Thursday afternoon.  I am trying to stay grounded in the reality that there is still a lot to be worked out when it comes to the financial aspect of this decision. You may see me holding a car wash in front of my house (the weather is warm in California!) to raise legal funds.  In the meantime, I am going to hang onto the words of wisdom from my new angel friend in Santa Barbara:

Remember, you have an enormous momentum in the spiritual realm right now, as thousands of women are reading your site and cheering for you. Don’t underestimate the collective power of intention. Now is the time! Everything will work out in the end. If it isn’t working out, then it isn’t the end.       ###

  1. Congratulations – have faith and I will pray it works out for you and your girls. You inspired me – nine years into this mess, trying to figure it out on my own, feeling like I could never breathe again. Today I walked into a courtroom, representing myself, taking your advice to heart – be prepared, grab God’s hand when I walk through the door. I walked out getting everything, I somehow found my voice without shaking this time and I heard and saw my ex slowly unravel when it came to his turn while he tried to recreate the myth of him being a good guy, but couldn’t – because the Judge SAW THROUGH HIM. Halleluja. A new judge. A new me, nine years later, learning how to do this. Of course, this round for me was all financial – the back child support, the other financial agreements he never met. As devastating as the financial stuff has been for us, it’s nowhere near as scary facing that as custody – that I know. But I also know now, today, that finding your voice and speaking the truth is key – but so is a fair judge and playing field. Somehow the stars aligned for me today for all of that after many years and I send out my wishes for you – all of you – that happens to you, too.

  2. Anita– I am so happy!!!! I can’t jump up and down because I’m in a coffee shop and it would probably scare those around me BUT….I am jumping up and down inside!!! I am so happy for you!!! Can I share this on Facebook? Tina

  3. Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you. I read your site daily and love it.

    I actually recommended it to a friend of mine who’s brother is dealing with a crazy N, doing his own litigation, two kids, etc.

    Thank you for all of your insight and inspiration. You so deserve this Tina!

    Good luck Girl!

  4. Yes, if you would still like to. Sending you my best hang tough vibes.

    As a postscript, I’ll note that my ex responded by insisting on Spring Break parenting time – which he never has done before, disrupting a week’s worth of plans I made because he’s never wanted them before. So, there’s always a sting with whatever sweetness and strength that comes your way, but that said, we can roll with this, my kids and I. We will make this work, and the steps backwards do feel smaller than they used to while this week the step forward was giant sized!
