Think before you speak
Be honest about where you are in your marriage (or divorce) and where you are going
Educate yourself on your finances
Build a support system to allow for more “me” time
Feel the feelings (cry, scream, contemplate, meditate)
Physical health is just as important as emotional health, so get moving
