Divorce Doesn't Mean the End
Open up to healing and your new beginning!

Use that time wisely. This is the time to think a little bit more about the future you'd like to create for yourself. During these moments of clarity, really listen to what you need and to what feels like the next best step for you.

For example, you may have an urge to take a class or explore an activity that you haven't tried before. It could be that you feel pulled to do something you used to do regularly, but you've stopped doing.

Pay close attention to your urges and, if they seem to be healthy and in your best interests, make a plan to actually follow through.

Be sure you are wholly supporting yourself as you line up with this new beginning.

Be mindful of the food and drink you are putting into your body. In other words, don't drown your sorrows in alcohol or chocolate. Stay active and exercise because those natural endorphins will promote a more positive mindset.

Get creative and let this be fun.

Your new beginning is YOURS.

You get to decide what you will do and what you won't do. This includes those weightier issues like finances, child care, housing, property, etc. But, it also includes your decisions about the people you will spend your time with, the places you will go, the things you will do and the habits you will continue or change.

This is the perfect time to re-assess and to make conscious decisions to be around people who are truly sources of support and love for you and to only do activities that feel soothing, healing, uplifting and positively expansive.

Take it one choice at a time and keep reminding yourself of the great stuff that comes with this new beginning you are embarking upon.
