How Divorce Affects Your Children

Recently I spoke with a woman whose coaching practice revolves around the issue of children and divorce.   She had many useful strategies for dealing with this challenge but what it all seemed to come down to is this:  if you love your children more than you might hate, resent or simply dislike your ex, then you are called upon to act with their well-being first and foremost instead of any hard feelings you may harbor against your former spouse.  You must be a bigger person that the issues surrounding your divorce.

Divorce: Don’t ask Why?

In life, I have come to accept the fact that there are questions of mine that will never be answered to my satisfaction if at all.  I have come to accept the fact that some things in life are beyond my comprehension and I must trust or have faith that certain occurrences are indeed outside the realm of human reason.  I have also come to see how these acts of acceptance with their attendant faith about life are concepts that apply to learning how to let go and move on after your divorce.

Was Your Divorce a Means to Healing Old Baggage?

Here’s a fascinating take on divorce that I find more true than not:  We choose our spouses, usually subconsciously, as a means to healing old emotional wounds we have been carrying around our entire life.  Our divorce then becomes the wakeup call to clean up that mental baggage we have been lugging around once and for all which in turn allows us to become the person we were always meant to be!

Are Your Beliefs Setting You Up for Unhappiness?

Each of us holds core beliefs about life. These belief systems have an incredible impact on our ability to be happy in life because they have a tendency to create expectations that all too often leave us feeling disappointed, resentful or angry. By uncovering these core beliefs, many of them sub-conscious, we can examine their validity and thereby save ourselves from much self-imposed unhappiness.

Life After Divorce: Choosing a Happy New Year

The New Year is the proverbial time to make resolutions about our lives. This year may I suggest that you resolve to make an empowering choice for yourself?  Choose to have a Happy New Year. As human beings, the ability to consciously choose is our most powerful attribute. Choice is ours and ours alone. Choose to commit to living this one precious life of yours as a happy person.

Newly Divorced and Surviving the Holidays

The Holidays are upon us once again and for many of you, this might be the first time around as a new unit, I.E. without your ex.  It’s a difficult time, no doubt about it, and just another step in the transition into a new life after divorce.  If you plan for this season you can make it easier on yourself.
