The Divorce Upside: Finding You After Losing Him

Shift your mindset and start seeing divorce as a gift of self-discovery—even if right now, it feels like your world has been turned upside-down.

There is a reason why traditional stress scales class divorce as one of the biggest challenges human beings can face.

When divorce happens, everything you took as a given—that your kids would live in your home all the time, that you would have a lifetime companion “in sickness and in health,” your financial security—are all called into question.

What’s more, one of the pillars of your identity is being a spouse and parent, and when divorce happens, it can seem like you have no idea which direction to take.

It is so easy to judge yourself as a “failure” when in fact, half of all first marriages end up in divorce, and second and third marriages end at a far higher rate.

Know that the “happy ever after” doesn’t have to involve a prince.

Your story starts within you and you are its protagonist.

Divorce gives you the chance to discover that you—and only you—are responsible for your happiness.

You choose how to interpret life and present yourself to others, and you decide the things you give value to.

You can choose to see villains and victims in your narrative, or be grateful for what you have (and what you had) and decide to build a beautiful, complete, and dynamic life.

Consider this book as a guide, shared by someone who has been through the same rollercoaster of emotions you are going through. It contains vital life lessons and a recipe to stop seeing your divorce as a “failure” and start seeing it as one of the greatest opportunities for growth you will ever receive.

Within its pages, you will discover:

  • A three-step method for discovering and transforming yourself after divorce – plus tasks to inspire you to “act” on finding your “upside”
  • Getting real – how to boost your self-awareness, separate fact from fiction, refrain from judging others and “projecting,” and see your divorce in a positive light
  • Letting go – how to release yourself from expectations, the pull of material belongings, and envy, and embrace authentic healing and forgiveness
  • Growing on – crucial pillars for moving on from the pain, including fearlessly forging your own identity, creating new traditions, and building unbreakable friendships
  • Personal anecdotes that will make you laugh, feel connected to the sisterhood, and, sometimes, bring a tear to your eyes!
  • How to find beauty, resolution, and peace after the climax of your divorce is over

And so much more.

After divorce, you may yearn to find another love—one that will last a lifetime.

Others’ experiences will show that this is completely attainable and often, love can be lovelier the second or third time around.

However, this story is all your own. It is about turning one of the most painful stories of your life into the most beautiful you have lived, and of transforming into the woman you always wanted to be.

If you’re ready to truly know yourself, live by your values, and form part of a sisterhood of shared happiness, tears, and hope, then scroll upwards and click “Add to Cart” right now!

Back To Happiness

To whom it may concern: One morning, not too long ago, two executives of equal rank sat down to drink a cup of coffee before heading out to work. They were very similar. Both were still married, had two children, and lived in the same neighborhood. They had known each other since college and both had been working at the same company for several years. One of them was getting a head start on the day. He was organizing his priorities, getting updated on the latest events, and communicating with his team. The other watched a little tree as he appreciated his cup of fresh-brewed coffee. He would take a sip and enjoy how it would subtly wet his lips, caress his tongue, and continue flowing through his throat. But that wasn’t the biggest difference. Even though both had a day full of tasks ahead, one of them looked in a rush and had an expression of tiredness on his face. The other one looked awake, peaceful, and grateful. Have you ever asked yourself why some people seem happier than others? If stress, overwhelm, sadness, disagreement, fear, anger, anxiety… are part of life, the difference lies in our ability to go back to happiness each time we move away from it. So, how can you go back? I don’t know. Only you do. All I can tell you is that the message beyond the words of this book will help you find your compass. Without expecting anything in return, David Torres Rodríguez

Goal Happiness: Revealing The Secrets Of A Happy Mind

Some people always seem happy. Is it because they have no problems in life? Are they just lucky? Absolutely not! HAPPINESS IS NOT LUCK, IT’S A SKILL.

Goal Happiness discusses the practical solutions in achieving your desires and creating your own happiness. Develop the habits of happiness and achieve real joy. This isn’t a step-by-step guide, or paragraphs filled with complicated philosophical terms. Instead, Goal Happiness is a guide to lead you on the path of finding your own destiny, and discovering your own ways to get there. No more overthinking, overstressing, or negative self-talk, this book will show you how to redesign your life, rewire your mind, and develop the skills for happiness. Find out what life really has to offer you!

Meet Debbie Seagle

Debbie Seagle lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia near most of the things she loves: family, friends, dirt, water, and mountain air. She has lived in several countries and all around the USA working as an airshow director, marketing director, operations manager, and Top Secret senior technical writer for some of the world’s unknown oracles.
