Happy New Year

The New Year is often an exciting time for most of us. We look forward to new plans, dreams and challenges. We set goals for ourselves to ensure our course for both personal and business success.

If you or someone you know is going through divorce though, the message of “Happy New Year” often does not resonate. Dreams and plans have often been lost and the challenges that lie ahead are often daunting. The journey of divorce is less overwhelming if we only look ahead to the next hour or next day. During divorce we should only set small challenges for ourselves; getting out of bed, making dinner, calling a friend or even exercising. Rejoice in the success of accomplishing these small tasks every day. You may find that it brings newfound energy and a brighter outlook and that it gives you the strength to meet the challenges on your journey.
