My life changed in one day. One day I was married, with a wife, an almost 3-year-old daughter, and an 18-month old son. The next day, I was wondering what the hell happened and how I was going to manage to live through this unexpected nightmare that was now my new reality. That nightmare would last for almost 3 years, as I went through an extremely difficult divorce and child custody battle. I could not have imagined the emotional, physical and financial toll the process of divorce would bring, and it required everything I had to make it through. Despite my pain, anger and frustration with where I was and what was happening, life didn't stop for me, and it won't stop and wait for you either. Life carries on, and it demands things of you that you don't feel you are capable of giving at the present time, Much like myself, you might have children to care for, a job to maintain and a myriad of other responsibilities that require you to show up and be present. I had to learn how to balance out the emotions, make critical decisions that would impact me and my children's future, control my limited finances, and navigate the intimidating and seemingly endless legal process. I can tell you that as difficult as the divorce process is, there is a way to not just survive, but actually thrive and come out the other side healthy and happy. Really? Yes, really. Of course it takes time and hard work. There are NO shortcuts to healing, starting a new life, and becoming whole, but it's possible. I want to share with you the strategies and experiences I have learned to help you navigate through this difficult experience with empowerment and confidence.
