Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the first thing you know is that men and women handle Divorce differently. For a woman, Divorce is more than just the end of her marriage. It is more than finding an attorney and navigating the complex legal process that follows.
Getting Divorced is not just the process of separating yourself from your entire life as a married person. Divorce is an emotional roller-coaster that you have found yourself on, without any clue how, or when, it will end.
No matter how it feels right now, God is not lost to you. Even if you can't find your faith in yourself, allow yourself the grace to believe in God's faith in you. He has always been there, and will be there to lean on when you need Him.
1) Understand how you got where you are.
2) Keep the focus on Your desired outcome.
3) Find your path from where you are,
to where you want to be.
As your coach, I am not here to judge you, or the mistakes you've made. I am not here to make decisions for you, or tell you what to do. There is no one-size-fits-all plan. There are no preconceived solutions to your problems.
Face it, you're a woman. What you need more than anything is the support of another woman who has been where you are.
Been there, Done That... Got the Merit Badge... Twice.
The reality is, I am not alone. According to the US Census Bureau, a full 50 percent of marriages in the United States end in Divorce. Make no mistake; I don't have the inside track on Divorce, I just have more experience than I ever thought I would.
After two divorces, I knew that I was the common denominator. I had to work on myself, my beliefs, my fears, and my misunderstandings about how relationships worked. But how? I looked for a self-help book, but they were either written by men, or by women that just told their stories, without any clues how to do things differently.
There I was, in my forties; half a continent away from my family, trying to put my life back together. After my first Divorce, I was Dented. After my second, I was broken. I wanted to believe that the best years of my life were yet to come. I'm not a quitter, and I knew that if other women could do it, I could too. It took time, and lots of trial and error, but eventually I found myself happy and whole, living my life on my own terms.
With the support of my amazing friends, and talking with 100's of women who shared their stories and lesson learned, I not only Survived Divorce, but wrote a book, built my own business, and yes, met the love of my life along the way.
I am blessed to help other women find their path on their journey through Divorce.
