Episode 019: Improvising with special guest Maddie O’Hara Yesterdays’ podcast was somewhat different than usual. Your guest was your friend Madeline O’Hara. The topic was changed up a bit. It centered on how much taking improv classes can help a person through a very trying time in their life especially after a divorce or break-up. Something in which the two of you had in common. Descriptions of what improv entails and how anyone can gain confidence in oneself and enjoy themselves in a way that they had never thought possible. Laughter is the best medicine. The other great benefit in doing this is making new friends. Watching your students come out of their shell and have fun, coming back for more classes week after week had to be so rewarding for yourselves. I enjoyed this podcast a lot. Each week Mom-nonymous shares her thoughts on the episode. Mom-nonymous is a wife, mom, and listener of Life Lafter Divorce Podcast. She’s been married for over 50 years, has never been divorced, and would like to remain anonymous.

After her second divorce, she remembers lying on her bedroom floor in the fetal position thinking, “I’m not going to let this make me into a bitter old woman with nine cats. I want to make this into the best thing that ever happened.” And so she did. Leanne began saying yes to new opportunities every chance she could. A co-worker suggested she take an improv class and she did. That was it for her. Leanne was hooked. Improv gave her a healthy outlet and, as a result, taught her how to improve her communications skills, gave her a new perspective,
