I’m glad you’re here!
Divorce is one of the hardest journeys you will ever make, in part because it’s a transformational journey—
transforming you form the inside out. As your life scatters around you in pieces, you are given the charge of putting them back together. If you work it right, and this program will help, you and your reassembled life will be better than you can currently imagine. It will change you.
I have an inspirational saying on my bookshelf that I kept throughout my own
divorce. It reads:
“Just when the caterpillar thought life was over, it became a butterfly.”
I’ve since learned that a caterpillar’s metamorphosis requires a complete disintegration—down to a few cells. Those few cells then develop into the new and beautiful creature we know as a butterfly. Complete transformation. Your life will be reduced to what seems like nubbins. But those pieces of familiarity that you treasure will develop into a new and beautiful life. A life that you design this time, not a life by default—a life by design. Being here with this workbook in hand is a great first step in your recovery, healing, and transformation.
I praise your bravery. I hope that you acknowledge yourself for your courage and strength. They are enough. This is not a journey for the faint of heart. All you need is the courage to do the next thing. That’s it. Just do the next thing. I will be with you.
This Toolkit will help you capture your thoughts, insights, and turning points. It provides exercises to help you work through your emotions and rebuild your self-worth. The second phase: Empowerment, will empower you to have a different kind of future.
You taking charge of your recovery and healing is a gift not only to you, but also to your family, your community, and the world. We need you whole and healthy.
With you in strength,
