Hello! Thank you for joining me at Thriving Ahead. By simply exploring the avenue of divorce coaching, you have already taken the first step in investing into a better future for yourself. This future is full of possibilities and I cannot wait to help you get there!
Not long ago, I had one of those “ah-ha” moments that don’t happen everyday. I was sitting with my son listening in sheer awe to a Holocaust survivor describe her journey before, during, and after the war. You could hear a pin drop as she recounted her story of both tragedy and triumph. She ended her talk by saying she is often asked why she continues to speak about the Holocaust so many years later. She said that she does this to give her journey purpose. Meaning, she could have chosen to live her life as a victim of her situation. She could have allowed herself to be swallowed by grief and sadness for all that she endured. Instead, she chose to put herself in control. She gave a voice to her tragedy, which gave hope and changed perspective to so many others.
I left that speaking engagement filled with hope and encouragement. I realized that we all have our battles, some bigger than others. We all also have a choice in how we move forward. I decided then and there that I would no longer be a victim of my circumstances. Sure, life has put several roadblocks in my path which often left me questioning “why is this happening”? It became very clear that the only way to remove these roadblocks was to put myself back in charge of my path.
I knew I wanted to also take back my purpose. I felt driven to find a way to take my vault of experiences and help others who are just starting their divorce journey. My experiences, which many are painful, will provide me the foundation to help others move forward to a more peaceful future. I am looking forward to sharing my journey with you in this platform and hope that we can join together to take back our future!
