Mere hours after she and her husband decided they would separate, entrepreneur and mom of two Denise Albert sat down at her computer and began writing about her pending divorce -- a split both she and her husband pledged would be amicable.
That first piece became Divorce Diaries, a blog series that shows other parents considering splitting up that it's entirely possible to have a grown-up, civil divorce for the sake of your kids.
What helped Albert move on after her own breakup, besides writing? Below, the journalist and television producer shares some of the small joys that have made a huge difference in her life since the separation a few years back.
