When you are going through the divorce process, it can be really difficult to see the sunshine through the trees but let’s face it, if you are getting a divorce it is because you believe that you can be happier if you are not married. Let me share some of the upsides of life after divorce.
#1 – Free Time
How many years has it been since you’ve actually had time all to yourself?? No husband, no kids, no responsibilities. Wow! What are you going to do with yourself? It may take a while to stop feeling lonely but now is the time to take a dance class and check out some local Meetup groups. It will be a great way to start to find your way back to yourself.
#2 – Space
You no longer have to share the kitchen, the garage, the office, etc. It will feel so nice not to have to rinse whiskers out of the stupid sink!
#3 – Sleeping
There is nothing better than totally sprawling across a queen or king size bed spread eagle to sleep. Not to mention if you were married to a snorer the peace and quiet is such a treat!
#4 – Control Of The Remote
You could spend all day watching Say Yes to The Dress, American Idol, The Voice, and chick flick movies! Or sports if that’s your thing.
#5 – No Money Battles
Almost every couple that divorces had some kind of conflicts over finances. While it’s really nice not to have to battle, make sure you are making good decisions for your own personal finances.
Now is your chance to make the most of your second phase. Make it count!!
