5 Wonderful Things About Life After Divorce

by Jul 12, 2018All, Divorce, Divorce blog, Financial, women divorce

I think a universal truth is that divorce is a tough thing. When you’re in the middle of the process, the light at the end of the tunnel can resemble something short of heaven. But let’s face it, if you’re getting a divorce it’s because you believe that you can be happier living apart from your current spouse. Let me share some of the upsides of life after divorce to help get your closer to the light.

1. Free Time

When I got my divorce, for the first time in more than 17 years I actually had time ALL TO MYSELF!! No kids, no husband, no responsibilities. Wow. What would I do with myself? I did feel lonely for good while, but then I took a class in watercolor painting and checked out some local meetup groups. It was a great way to start to find my way back to myself.

2. Space

I no longer had to share the office, the garage, the kitchen, etc. It felt so nice not to have to rinse whiskers out of the stupid sink!

3. Sleeping

What is better than totally sprawling across a queen or king size bed spread eagle to sleep? Nothing, I tell you! Not to mention if you were married to a snorer the peace and quiet is such a treat!

4. Control of the Remote

I could spend all day watching Say Yes to The Dress, The Voice, American Idol, and chick flick movies! Ahhhhhhhhhhh. Not that I did, but the choice is now yours.

5. No Money Battles

Almost every couple that divorces had some kind of conflict over finances. Be sure to recognize your weaknesses and set a plan to make good decisions for your own personal finances. After you do, it’s really nice not to have to battle with anyone about the decision.

Now is your chance to make the most of your second phase. Make it count!!
