Envisioning what your life will look like after divorce is hard. This is
especially true if you were more interested in fighting to save your marriage
than get divorced. It can also be a difficult task if your divorce case
is hotly contested. The bottom line is that after the divorce is final,
your entire family structure will be different. It will take some adjusting,
but can actually turn out better than you may have originally thought.
For many, divorce is a time to reinvent themselves. What this means is
that all of the sudden you have the time to focus on your own needs and
interests. This is a good time to take up an old hobby, or pick up on
something new. The key to a successful transition is to take it at your
own pace. Everyone is different, and only you know when your "period
of mourning" has come to an end and you are ready to move on with
your life. Being alone can be helpful, and give you a chance to get to
know yourself again.
Getting to the life you want is just around the corner. Take the time to
figure out what you want, and if it helps put it in writing. Much like
reaching financial goals is easier when you can see them written down,
the same is true of personal and emotional goals. Reaching milestones
that are visible is much more rewarding than working towards an unseen
objective. We can help get you through your divorce, and beyond. Call
