A Simple Divorce Self Help Journal
This guided journal will help you through the divorce process with confidence, supporting you to make well-thought out decisions and set realistic yet hopeful goals for your future. Stella offers compassionate and understanding insights based on her own experience to help you with key decisions you’ll make during your divorce. This book covers:
· What you may be entitled to get and preparing your finances.
· Finding a lawyer and getting prepared for your first meeting.
· Facing your emotions and practicing self-care.
· Purging your closet, your kitchen, and making a new home.
· Reigniting your dreams for your new life after divorce.
Divorce can be painful, confusing, and overwhelming. Stella shares what she learned in her divorce with other women because she believes that you don’t have to learn it the hard way.
If you are facing divorce you should be empowered with knowledge so you can make informed decisions with confidence. Decisions you make now will directly impact the rest of your life, so it’s important to take back control of your life and plan for your future.
This guided journal will help keep you focused on what comes next, help you prepare for the long term, and help lead you to what you really want. It will also help you discover what exactly you want.
What fears are most dominant when you think about your life after divorce? What does post-divorce life even look like? Will you be okay? Where will you live? What can you afford? How will your lifestyle and that of your children be affected?
These are all important questions that you will be able to answer as you work through this guided journal. As you find solutions to these questions and map out your future life, you will feel empowered and confident. Your confusion will be replaced with clarity, and your fear will be replaced by courage.
“With organization comes empowerment.”- Lynda Peterson
Getting organized is the key to taking back control of your life. There are two parts of divorce you must deal with- the legal/financial part and the emotional part. In the first section of the journal you will prepare an detailed financial file that will equip you for your entire divorce process and may also save you legal fees.
In the second section of the journal you will focus on your emotions about the divorce, your self-care, and your dreams of the future. You may find this section the most liberating as you rebrand your life.
"Stella’s book is reassuring, holistic, and creative. She speaks of the hero’s journey and acts as an understanding and patient guide, providing journal pages and gorgeously simple line drawings of women and nature to “help clear your mind and express your emotions in a safe place.”
The well-chosen quotes complement Stella’s own hard-earned wisdom. She reminds us that “it is never too late to honor yourself” and “It won’t be like this forever.”
This book makes a beautiful gift to yourself or anyone you know going through divorce or separation. "
