I know how difficult it can be when you’re going through a divorce. Here are a few things that helped me:

1) I spent a lot of time playing the addictive bubblet game. Don’t say I didn’t warn you that it’s addictive!

2) The book “How to Survive the Loss of a Love” by Peter McWilliams.

3) Friends!

4) I walked the dog a LOT.

5) Discovering a dream and working toward it.

6) On a purely practical level, my mom sent me a copy of Uncle Bill’s Bill Manager.

7) Here are some ideas from the book “Mars and Venus Starting Over” by John Gray:

  • Listen to music
  • Go to movies or watch videos
  • Read books and discuss them
  • Go for a drive
  • Burn candles
  • Join a support group
  • Learn something new
  • Practice an art or craft
  • Go shopping
  • Buy a gift for yourself
  • Buy flowers
  • Garden
  • Make home improvements
  • Bake bread
  • Go somewhere new, meet new people
  • Care for a pet
  • Ask for help and support from friends
  • Ask for hugs from friends
  • Count your blessings
  • Be patient with yourself and others
  • Go for a walk
  • Watch a sunset
  • Do something good for others
  • Go to church
  • Exercise or practice a sport
  • Keep a journal
  • Get a massage

8) My sister took me on a shopping therapy trip. I found a beautiful book of children’s prayers that included this one:

I hear no voice, I feel no touch
I see no glory bright;
But yet I know that God is near
In darkness as in light.
He watches ever by my side
And hears my whispered prayer:
The Father for His little child
Both night and day doth care.
-Anonymous

9) Remember you are loved.

I enjoy finding great information, combining it in new ways, and packaging it creatively. I'm highly interested in the areas of goal setting, time management, and skills to improve life.
