Every journey must start with one step. Even a tiny step propels you forward. (No, that is not from a fortune cookie!)
On the occasion of having to imagine what your life will be after your marriage bubble has popped, imagining what your future can be is something that gives you permission to get excited and hopeful.
Folks, I’ve discovered a sure fire way to feel good and set the tone for the next chapter of your life. Yup, it's true! And I'm excited to share it with you. Are you ready? Here it is... write down what you want your post-divorce life to be.
Okay, okay, I know I didn't invent the idea of writing something down in order for it to manifest but I’m telling you, it works. It doesn't matter what shape it comes in, it can be a letter to your future self or a list of matter-of-fact bullet points or a messy grocery list.
Here are some examples of things for your wish list:
I want to move to a place that has an outdoor space
I want to have enough money each month to be able to put away X amount into savings
I want to take a beach vacation every year
I want a unicorn
The truth is it can be anything, as long as you get it down on paper. Yup, WRITE IT DOWN. There is something about the old fashioned exercise of putting pen to paper that is cathartic.
Look, I’m not promising magic, I’m just saying that putting something out into the universe will make you feel good. You deserve to feel good! (and maybe there is a little magic out there too?)
