1.Believe in Yourself!
Three words that are so powerful they can change any "I can't into "I can". When you hear the words "I want a divorce", there will be times you will say, "I can't do this". Divorce†is like a marathon you didn't sign up for and certainly didn't know the extent of the hills you would have to climb. And, as with every challenge, you start every day saying "I can do this" even when you have no idea how you will take the next step. When you have the will, it will drive you to find the way. There is no purpose, no gain, and no benefit to being in the space of "I can't do this". "You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it."
2.The tough minutes, hours, and days will be followed by good minutes, hours, and days!
When you take on a challenge or are forced to take on a challenge, you will have tough times. It is part of the road. When the tough times come don't say "why me"? "Why me" sends you down a victim/martyr road that bumps you off the road to recovery. "What is my learning here" is the question for the dark times. If you have to deal with finances for the first time (you have always said I don't understand or do finances), well the lesson probably is as an adult you need to understand money: how to bring it in, what you need to know about where it goes out and how to make that work.
