Exercising Thankfulness and Gratitude After a Divorce

Here are a few ways you can accomplish this.

  • Think about what’s good in your life: What are the things you enjoy about your life, even when things feel bad? Maybe it’s your friends, a hobby you have, spending time alone, a pet—anything. Spend some time each day journaling or just reflecting on what about your life is good and what you are grateful for. Journaling is a great way to perform this exercise, as you can go back and revisit your entries and see just how many things in your life make it worthwhile.
  • Don’t shy away from emotions: You don’t have to suppress negative emotions like anger or sadness—feeling your emotions is a good thing. However, it I important to refocus and center yourself after experiencing these emotions. Throw yourself into the things you love and are grateful for.
  • Do good for others: Giving back to others is a great way to demonstrate gratitude and make a positive difference. Find ways to volunteer, or simply do things for people you care about and who have supported you through difficult times.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
