Getting through a divorce may seem to take every bit of strength you think you have. When you emerge on the other side you may feel uncertain about your future. Your divorce may have been draining and hard but you now have the opportunity to make a fresh start.
Before you do anything drastic, get a handle on what your budget is moving forward. How much money do you have coming in each month and what are your regular bills and payments that you must make? Creating a budget will allow you to determine how much discretionary income you actually have, and it may also help you find places where you can cut costs.
Think about what you want for your life. What are your goals? What will make you a happy person? It’s time to really think about who you want to be and how you can get there. This might mean trying new activities, learning new skills, changing the way you interact with the people in your life, or finding new friends.
If you’ve been contemplating big changes such as going back to school, changing careers, or moving out of state, this may be the perfect time to do it. Take the change that you’ve been handed and build on it.
You might be ready to start dating, or you might find you need some time. There are lots of ways to meet people when you are ready. You can ask friends to introduce you to other singles.
