It’s a pretty cool name: Pink Peppers. The owner of this new site, Terry Matheis, has this to say about the choice of name in the About/history section of the site:
- “Pink is a feminine color and PP is a women’s group.
- Peppers…well, the Founder’s then-13-year-old daughter thought it would be cute!”
The flavor, if-you-will, of this site is exciting and encouraging: Laugh. Dance. Move On. Says Matheis of this site – that gives divorced and separated women of all ages and work experience a positive forum: “…The Pink Peppers is also about attitude. A woman who is involved in a marriage that ends in divorce has two choices: She can either focus on the negative which keeps her stuck in the past and leads to bitterness, or she can decide that life is full of possibilities; and if she accepts change over pain, she can move on to achieve great promise….”
Why am I there? I’m a business writer, I’m a woman and I’ve been divorced. I speak the language and understand the nuances. I like the positive-ness and the whole idea of moving on wearing dancing shoes. Life should be a delightful dance…not a heads-down trudge. But that’s just me. Yes, I’m happily married now to someone who is my best friend…but the scars are there never to totally fade. Maybe I can offer encouragement.
