Words of Wisdom for Women in Divorce - Opportunity
You are now at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. Forget your past. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully. - Anthony Robbins
Inspiration: When we face a life-changing event such as a divorce, we are at a crossroads of new beginnings.Here you stand and you get to choose to what you want to do with your life. You and you alone are making these choices. Here is where you can take all that you have learned from what you have gone through and change things that you don't like. You get to do a "do over" in your life, but this time you are in the driver's seat.
Action: If you need help to create this new life, seek help from a support group, a minister or contact me at [email protected]
Every failure, obstacle or hardship is an opportunity in disguise. Success in many cases is failure turned inside out. The greatest pollution problem we face today is negativity. Eliminate the negative attitude and believe you can do anything. Replace 'if I can, I hope, maybe' with 'I can, I will, I must.' - Mary Kay Ash
Inspiration: The key to this quote is the fact that your attitude is the crucial key that determines which direction your future will take. You are in control. Yes, maybe life has handed you a set of circumstances that were totally out of your control, but your future is still yours. Your attitude gives you that power. Your attitude recognizes this opportunity for change. Your attitude can take you places you only dreamed of. Your attitude is all you need to see change happen in your future.
Action: What is your attitude? Are you allowing the negativity of the past to dictate your future? Are you controlling your attitude to only contain positive things and hope for a better future? Remember you get to choose your attitude, no one and nothing can control it unless you allow it.
Life's up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want. - Marsha Sinetar
Inspiration: When we look at all that has happened to us as an opportunity to grow, we then can take in account the things that have happened to us as stepping stones, taking us higher and higher. Nothing that you have faced in the past needs to be wasted, every event, every action can be used for your good. The only thing that is needed is how your view what happened to you. If you learn from it and it allows you to grow than it was a good thing. If you allow it to make you bitter and negative then you lose because the event or action is now hindering your growth.
Action: Review recent events in your life. How are you viewing them? Are they things you have learned from? If so, great then you are on a growth curve. Are they causing you pain? Then you have allowed them to hurt you and only you can change that by how you look at what happened. Life is too short to allow events and circumstances to hinder your growth. You get to choose how you want your future to be. Allow the things that were meant to harm you to make you stronger and better.
Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. - Henry Ford
Inspiration: Some people feel that a divorce is a failure and maybe in some ways it is. But however you view it realize it is only an opportunity to begin again and this time you have wisdom and experience on your side. The key in this equation is your viewing of this event. It happened. What are you going to learn from it? How will your world be better because of it? The only thing that can keep you stuck in this place is you. Your attitude will either allow you to soar with the eagles and create a dynamic new life or you will be stuck with the turkeys and constantly pecking away at the crumbs on the ground.
Action: Stop allowing yourself to see what happened as a failure that defines who you are and where you are going. See what happened as a new beginning. Watch your attitude to make sure that you keep it focused on new beginnings not old regrets.
The Colorado court awards alimony based on the spouses' financial situation, earning capacity, income, and the circumstances of the marriage. When one spouse stayed home to care for the children for several years while the other spouse earned the income supporting the family, the court will generally require the working spouse to continue supporting the family.
