4 Resolutions To Make For Your Divorce Afterlife

The term “divorce afterlife” always seemed to be a fitting one. If you’ve ever been through a divorce, then you know what I’m talking about. You really aren’t the same person post-divorce as you were before, and if you play your cards right, that’s a good thing. The key to making the most out of your situation is to have resolutions, just like you would at the start of a new year. Recently HuffPo took a crack at this and came up with 50 one-word resolutions. Here were what I would consider to be the most essential.

Adventure

When you get a divorce, it’s easy to let yourself throw a 24/7 pity party. That’s because no one likes to fail, and it’s easier to dwell on what went wrong than it is to take a hard look at yourself and make changes. That’s where a sense of adventure comes in. By making an effort to try new things and make decisions you never would have made married, you can get to know yourself at a deeper level. Chances are, you’ll like the discoveries you make.

Breathe

Divorce is often dangerous because it causes us to grow calloused to the world around us. We allow the maddening pace of everyday life to take over and pretty soon we’re just going from one day to the next “getting by” without ever stopping to enjoy new people or experiences. By taking some deep breaths, meditating, and getting away from negative influences, you can approach your life in a rejuvenated fashion where you actually notice the world around you (and the opportunities).

Acceptance

The faster that you can accept the person that you are and move forward instead of looking back, the faster you will reap the benefits of divorce instead of looking at it as a negative.

Optimism

People who can envision good things happening are much more likely to experience them. Don’t let pessimism take its toll on your body and mind. Tell yourself that this divorce happened for a reason, and that reason is to help you become the man or woman you’re supposed to be.
