WELLINGTON, FL --- April showers bring May flowers, May flowers bring June brides. But when Spring has sprung and Summer romances flourish, the blooming hot topic of relationships is on every woman\'s mind. Amy Botwinick, Author of the \'girlfriend\'s guide,\' \"CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR DIVORCE: The Road To Finding Your Happily Ever After\" is on a mission to change the way we talk about divorce with over two million divorces in the U.S. each year. On Thursday, May 25, 2006, Botwinick will bring an inspiring evening of advice to Barnes & Noble (The Shoppes at Wellington Green, 10500 West Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, FL 33414, 561-792-1292) at 7 p.m. with a one-of-a-kind evening for the bride-to-be, the divorced woman, and the divorced woman looking at marriage a second time around. Botwinick\'s goal is to provide resources, information, education and an empowering journey for divorced women with advice for women to be aware of self-reliance upon a relationship rocky road.
\"The thought of your marriage breaking up can be emotionally overwhelming for you and your family. The most important thing you can do as you face this challenge is to make yourself your top priority. Making yourself your number one priority may sound selfish but it\'s going to be all about you being strong enough to be the glue to hold it all together. As you now face becoming head of your new family structure, your children are waiting for you to take the lead and they will gain their strength and courage from your attitude and perception of their new life,\" explains Botwinick.
Botwinick\'s book isn\'t the typical divorce gloom-n-doom book, but rather a resource guide covering single parenting, legal, financial and emotional arenas and includes stories -- both her own and situations from other women in the same relationship sinking boat. Written as a form of survival and therapeutic evolvement through her own divorce, Botwinick\'s book helps women to move on with life and evolve with the times and has received much praise and support from professionals.
\"As a divorce attorney I have watched many of my clients struggle with the challenges and emotions associated with divorce. This book is a great gift to give women and open minded men who are searching for good information, hope and laughter as it guides them through the many stages of uncoupling,\" states Marc M. Cohen, Esquire.
Botwinick, a Boca Raton resident -- single mother of two -- 12-year chiropractor-turned-first-time author is a believer in the \"HAPPILY EVER AFTER\" chapter of her book, currently living her own while having her website www.todaysdivorcedwoman.com become a resource center to \'move forward\' with life. A portion of the proceeds from book and product sales on Botwinick\'s website will go to victims of domestic violence and women\'s shelters, helping moms get back on their feet for themselves and their children in a healthy environment. The site has a newsletter section which also has key advice from professionals.
Carolyn Tolep LCSW CAP Divorce Therapist is a supporter of Botwinick\'s, offering counseling advice to the bride-to-be as well as the divorced woman ready to seek out marriage a second time. \"After meeting with numerous soon-to-be brides, I usually tell them to sit down with your fiance and develop a marriage \'contract\' agreement where you list all the expectations of your life together on paper -- from career, sex life, children to household chores. The goal is to gain further understanding of each other\'s expectations and develop a realistic lifestyle with compromises. Watch out for lack of flexibility and resistance to change. It is important to regularly nurture a relationship, just like watering a garden, which allows the flowers to bloom. Lastly, little things like consistently saying thank you and showing appreciation makes a difference,\" Tolep explains. \"For ladies taking the plunge on getting re-married, it\'s important to recognize how your behavior contributed to your previous marriage dissolving. It can be very helpful to receive therapy after the trauma of divorce, so you can leave the emotional baggage at the door,\" states Tolep.
Botwinick has been busy spreading her message to women everywhere from The Miami Book Fair, to holiday blues tips and advice, various book signings covering a myriad of topics from stress-relief to celebrating women evolving in their ever-changing roles, to presenting her information and resources in speaking engagements with attorneys and women\'s groups and Planned Parenthood, promoting health and safety. \"I have a lot of ground to cover -- there are so many issues to discuss and women are wanting to talk,\" states Botwinick. Botwinick is building her network through her own website and newsletter as well as building a network of over 750 women on Myspace with whom she chats daily -- where the united sisterhood shares a mutual support system in open discussion through blogs and emails.
