If you can think of a negative adjective, it will probably describe the upheaval of divorce. It’s a gut-wrenching, ball-busting thing to have to go through. It’s also survivable but when in the midst of the legal and emotional web, that can seem impossible the fathom. I remember doubting my ability to let go of my marriage and rebuild a life for my children and myself after my ex left. I held on tightly to what used to be and was unable to focus clearly on what might be in front of me.
One day I read this quote by Bradley Whitford, “Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.”
I felt like someone had hit me over the head with a hammer. I’d spent months reading books about divorce recovery and there was a quote that had nothing to do with divorce and everything to do with what I needed to do to get my life back on track. I hope you find the same amongst the quotes below. One that will hit you hard and get you on track!
