Remember how around New Year’s time there are tons of social media posts all about "creating the life of your dreams" and "dreaming big, no holds back"?
When you’re sitting in the ashes of "the life of your dreams" you no longer buy into the create-the-life-you-want schtick.
Here’s the thing though. You still have life in your body. You have value, gifts and talents. Maybe they haven’t seen the light of day for awhile, but they’re still there. They’re in you and they’re waiting to get used again.
A lot of times, the things that we’re good at become liabilities when we’re in relationships that don’t value the things we’re good at. We start to become someone we’re not in order to please someone we’re with.
We become a shell of ourselves, the real us getting quieter and quieter in order to just survive.
Post-divorce, you have agency to create a new life. Maybe it’ll look nothing like you ever thought it would, but you get to choose how it’ll look. You can take the time to think about what you’d like to do and how you’d like to do it, to experiment with what you’re good at, discover patterns that maybe aren’t working for you and choose to change them.
How do you create a new life that has purpose, meaning and value?
As a strengths coach, I recommend starting with claiming what you’re good at. What makes you you? Turn your strengths, that became weaknesses in your marriage, back into strengths.
When you know what you’re good at, what makes you tick, how you see the world, think, act and feel you can create space and opportunity to create a life you love. Even if it's not a life you imagined.
Knowing what you're good at and owning it, means when you're doing something that doesn't quite feel like “you” you’ll be able to put a finger on it right away.
