Before and After Divorce

Here are some questions to get you thinking about what you are trying to create for yourself. Create a portrait of your experience of your life as a BEFORE and AFTER picture. What would it look like?


• How would you describe your most common emotional state in your day-to-day existence?
• What “sets you off”, makes you upset or frustrated, and how does it do that?
• What do you worry about?
• What is preventing you from doing what you love?
• What does your inner voice tell you about what you should be doing differently to make yourself happy or to make your life more agreeable?
• Is there an image or a word that occurs to you that describes your current state of mind and way of living?


• How would you like to feel on a day-to-day basis?
• What activities do you wish you had more time or energy to engage in?
• If you could write your ideal description of your life from another person’s view, what would that be?
• What qualities and character traits do you wish that others associated with you when they think about you?
• If you could change three things about your occupation or the way you spend your time each day, what would they be?

Now, begin bringing these qualities into your life a bit at a time … If you can’t hire a coach, find a friend and do it together.

Good luck!
