It's April, your divorce papers are signed, and it's a new chapter, scary, exciting, change, and your choice if you recover or crash land!
Let's make a list of things to remember.
1. Change is good.
2. Keep a journal.
3. Make a schedule for time when the children are with you AND for when you have your free time.
4. Make a budget.
5. Shop for healthy food and set up menus.
6. Hire a therapist just for you or find a group for people going through change or reinventing themselves.
7. Schedule in physical exercise, which may be walks until you figure things out.
8. Say 5 things you are grateful for and take 10 deep breaths before you get out of bed every morning.
9. Schedule fun things with other single friends when you don't have the children. Schedule fun things when you do have your children with other friends and their children.
Make your own list and take charge of your life. Wake up everyday excited about the opportunities you can create for your family. Take one minute at a time when things get tough and believe in you.
Who is a good choice for you in the future? Remember who you are, notice who you became in the marriage and ponder who you want to be in the future. This is an exciting research project for you about you and then you with your life partner. Enjoy the ride.
