Each month I’m honored to be of service as the Life Coach at the Second Saturday Divorce Clinic located in Gilbert, Arizona. During the intense certification process it was suggested that we choose areas of focus in our business that we excelled in. It didn’t make sense to focus on weight loss if you are still routinely blaming others for your setbacks (you were forced to consistently make bad choices and consume the entire bottle of wine), or finances if you have to consistely raid the change jar to pay bills because you have a financial hangover at the end of every month.
Even though I don’t consider myself a divorce expect, (sounds a little crazy!) I decided to embrace the opportunity after being reminded of the focus during my certification process, which was healing ourselves first. We could not hold space for others while they transitioned through their own journey if we were still carrying our own baggage. What I realized is that if nothing else, I can be the lemonade in their life (when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!). Hope is what I am there to provide and I find it exciting to be living proof that there IS life (and happiness!) after divorce!
Divorce can be one of the biggest, most challenging decisions you will ever make, and you don’t need to make it alone.
