How to enjoy yourself despite your divorce

It was my birthday recently and I went out with 2 of my best friends from school and another close friend I have known for 20 years. We had a really fab time and spent the rest of the weekend recovering!

Birthdays are a time for taking stock and reflecting on the past twelve months. I have met 4 truly dreadful people this year who have stolen from me, are attempting to rip me off, have lied to me and generally are best forgotten. I have also met 4 fantastic people who have enriched my life enormously. It all depends on your focus as to whether you enjoy your life or not.

Getting divorced can cause huge stress and prevent you enjoying the many opportunities there are. It is best to regard it as a process that you will get through and look forward to a better future. There are lots of resources out there to help you control your anxiety and the first step to feeling better is to smile!!!!
