Daily Challenge……Family / Divorce

The children have gone off with my ex husband and his new wife on a Bank Holiday day out and I don’t know what to do with myself!!
I am feeling…..Bitter / Bereft / Jealous

Step 1. (How I would like to feel…)
Acceptance / Freedom / Moving On

Step 2. (Quality Questions for self…)
How can I enjoy my day?
Have I panned ahead accordingly?
Am I thinking of the childrens balanced well being here?
Where can I place my focus today?
Who can I interact with?
Do I need to work on myself, so I can accept our current family situation?

Step 3. (Practical steps leading to Positive Results…)
Look at the situation from a completely different view point.
Decide to enjoy the free time you have today.
Indulge in your hobbies and passions, outside child rearing (re-visit old hobbies).
Use the time to start something completey new.
Plan days out with the children and yourself for another day.
Use the time to meet up with friends and family you’ve not had chance to see for a long time.
Decide to let go of and move on from the bitter feelings around your ex…the only person you are torturing is yourself.
Seek professional help if your feelings are affecting your ability to enjoy life.
