The Holidays Don’t Have To Suck During A Divorce
The holidays are an extremely stressful time for anyone going through a divorce (and even after). Learn my perspective on how to approach it differently to limit your stress and increase the quality of your experiences.
Resolutions set us up for failure, so leverage the Law of Attraction to make true change in your life.
Apparently, this is the time, more than any other time of the year, when we’re allowed to dream. This is the time when we’re supposed to write down our goals or resolutions for the coming year. Fueled by our dreams, it is oh, so attractive to get swept up in the adrenalin rush of all the things we could achieve as we round the corner into a New Year. We leave the old year behind, along with all of our disappointments. And we look to the New Year with hope around all the things we could accomplish … and with excitement around what those accomplishments would bring to our lives. Unfortunately, those resolutions set us up for failure. Resolutions are traps because they are based on the premise that we just need to “do” more to get what we want. We create impossibly high goals for ourselves which can rarely be achieved. And if they weren’t, wouldn’t we have accomplished them already?
So, rather than fail again this year, I invite you to tap into the Law of Attraction instead. The Law of Attraction, quite simply, states that “like attracts like.” So, we attract good or bad experiences based on our thoughts … based on who we choose to “be” in our lives. Our universe is one large mass of energy. Individually, we are each just comprised of energy. Nobel Prize-winning physicists have proven that it is our thoughts, our consciousness, that pull this energy field together to create the world we see and experience within the limited spectrum of our senses. Our perception of the world is purely interpretation. Whatever we believe in, and observe, is created by the very fact that we believe it and are observing it. Our thoughts literally create the universe we live in. And because “like attracts like,” thinking about something means you invite it in – whether you want it or not. So, the trick is to actively focus on your positive intentions, while avoiding negativity, to manifest what you want.
