In honour of Mother's Day, I'd like to share the inspiring story of Dr. Suzanne Vickberg. Despite divorcing her husband twelve years ago, she still lives with him, their children, and his new wife - not as a 'Jerry Springer' spectacle, but as a testament to the idea that divorce doesn't have to be devastating and that family comes first.
For Dr. Vickberg, her divorce wasn't a failure but an opportunity to find a new way forward. She refused to limit herself to the binary choice of staying or leaving and instead moved into the guest room, which ultimately allowed her family to remain intact.
This is a story of a mother's love and sacrifice for her family and how it can lead to unexpected and beautiful outcomes.
To further explore the theme that with change comes choice, I spoke with Simika Kabir, Director of Commercial Financial Services Strategy for Women in Business, Black Entrepreneurs, and Business Owner Planning. She shared valuable insights on reclaiming your dreams and finding a new path after sudden upheavals. Simika's advice is empowering and uplifting and serves as a reminder that it's never too late to start anew.
