Post-Divorce and What I Learned from Advice
Post-divorce brings a lot of challenges. After the school year ended I was able to get away for some downtime. Our school year was filled with a lot of challenges from the beginning to the end. I booked my first solo trip in eight years. My transition from being married to separated and finally divorced was a rollercoaster. I am always making life decisions and trying to find balance is tough. The best part of taking time away is looking forward to the next trip. Traveling with intention is my priority.
When Advice Arrives
Divorce comes with a lot of advice, suggestions, and self-proclaimed wisdom. I know my past, present, and future which means I need to do what makes sense for me. While some advice may come with good intention only I know what works for my sanity. Unfortunately, there is no handbook for life and disappointments are along the way. The most important thing is that my decisions are in the best interest of myself and my kids.
I will no longer feel guilty about scheduling time away to decompress and reset. As a working mom, I loved the time away off the radar with no schedule except for watching a sunset. The best thing to offer a single parent is the support to lessen the day to day grind. Nothing is perfect but there are lessons to be learned along this path.
