Single Mom: Easier or not?

It’s time for your *Friday Love Note,* because you deserve it.

This week there were conflicting comments on my facebook link.
Is it easier to be a single mom?  Or harder?
Two women were in total disagreement.

So, who was right?  
The answer – can be found in my client’s stories.

Sarah feels that life as a single mom is so much better.  Her marriage was a huge weight.  She felt like she was alone in her marriage pretty much from the beginning.  She feels so much relief.  And now, even with it’s challenges – it’s just a matter of creating a great future.

Jessica – had a totally different experience.  Her marriage was great!  Until it wasn’t.  She had so many years of happiness and connection.  They had a great life together and now, she feels the void. For her, she’s working to create balance and happiness again.  One day at a time.

Neither is right, and neither is wrong.  Everyone has a story, and where you are is exactly where you should be.

For today, take a moment to remind yourself that wherever you are – is perfect.

Whatever is hard for you today – won’t always be hard. 
You’ll figure it out – you always do.

Look at how far you’ve come.
Think about the best parts of your life.
Imagine the brightness of your future. 

Yes, let your mind go there.

Have a great weekend, one thought at a time!
And take amazing care of yourself…
