Maintaining Change

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:53-08:00 April 4th, 2015|Beginning Again, Self-Help|

In Lynne Twist's book, The Soul Of Money, she writes: For me, and for many of us, our first waking thought of the day is "I didn't get enough sleep." The next one is "I don't have enough time." Whether true or not, that thought of not enough occurs to us automatically before we even think [...]

So You’ve Just Signed Your Separation Agreement

By | 2015-05-19T16:05:05-07:00 March 17th, 2015|Beginning Again, Divorce Self-Help, Self-Help|

Congratulations. Finalizing a separation agreement is a major achievement and usually comes at the end of a very stressful and emotional period in your life. Signing a separation agreement will likely have a strong emotional impact on you.  It is tangible evidence that your old life, the one you once had hopes and dreams for, is finally done. [...]

Thoughts – I Can’t Do It

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:53-08:00 November 10th, 2014|Beginning Again, Self-Help|

There are many of negative thoughts out there that keep a person stuck in one place. I know because these thoughts kept me stuck: I let those thoughts control my actions. One thought that keeps turning  up in my life is "I can't do it." This is accompanied with "I am not good, smart, ambitious, deserving. [...]

Thoughts – Alone

By | 2014-11-10T20:42:21-08:00 November 7th, 2014|Beginning Again, Self-Help|

Do you sometimes think to yourself “I am alone”? I do. It is usually immediately after dropping my kids off at school on a day that is the start of a five day stretch where they live at their dad’s home. It doesn’t matter that about thirty minutes earlier they were driving me bonkers with [...]

Uncomfortable Equals Motivation

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:53-08:00 November 4th, 2014|Beginning Again|

Today I woke up feeling unmotivated. I tried to work for a bit and then decided what I was doing wasn't getting me anywhere so I took a break. I pondered the fact that it was cold in my house and the pilot light on the boiler had likely gone out again. I emailed my [...]

I’m (Not) Worried About You

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:53-08:00 October 27th, 2014|Beginning Again|

I'll never forget when someone said that to me. It was the last day of my back-to-work training course and the facilitator looked at me with her very understanding eyes and said "I worry about you." Of all the 20 women in the class, she worried about me.  Being an introvert I couldn't ask her [...]

People Pleasers

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:54-08:00 October 22nd, 2014|Beginning Again|

I have gotten to start again (thank you divorce) and my first step for starting again was figuring myself out and what my values are. I know that if I am not living according to my own values, I will be unhappy, unmotivated and unsuccessful. I continually see how this lesson plays out every day [...]

You’re Divorced? Congratulations!

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:54-08:00 October 22nd, 2014|Beginning Again|

Someday, one of your friends is gonna get divorced, it’s gonna happen, and they're gonna tell you. Don’t go, “ohhh I'm sorry.” That’s a stupid thing to say. First of all, you're making ‘em feel bad for being really happy, which isn't fair and second of all: DIVORCE IS ALWAYS GOOD NEWS. I know that [...]
