Looking 4 A Better Life After Divorce?

In 4 A Better Life, Separation & Divorce by Elizabeth Stephenson

Your past experiences are valuable lessons to you, now learn from them.

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – Rafiki, from The Lion King

I love the Lion King movie.  In fact I’m a little bummed that my son is too old for Disney movies.  There’s that pivotal moment when Simba’s past comes to haunt him and the young Prince must decide his fate: Will he remain an outcast, or face his demons and become what he needs to be?  It’s a crossroads many of us face when going through separation, divorce or loss of a relationship.  Do I stay mired in this pain and hurt?  Or do I face the hard choices and facts of my life and move forward to a new and better future?

Looking 4 A Better Life After Divorce? | New Direction Family Law | Wake CountyAs the founder of New Direction Family Law, I set out to create a new type of family law firm that focuses on helping our clients move through their hurt and pain to reach a place where they can have the life they want and deserve for themselves and their families.  I understand that a separation and divorce is like a death and each person moves through their grief in their own unique way and on their own timeframe.  So, instead of just creating a family law firm that provides legal expertise and advocacy for our clients, we added a new layer –involvement, education and support for our clients and others that provides knowledge and skills so they can focus on improving and changing the four main areas of their lives – Health, Wealth, Wisdom and Love.

It’s a fact – when you separate, you can’t go back to the old life you had, time won’t stand still and keep you in this place of the unknown. So, the only direction you can move is forward in a new direction toward a better life.  4 A Better Life is a personal growth and workshop series that we designed to help you make the choice to move forward in a positive and empowered way.

4 A Better Life happens the first Saturday of every month throughout 2017.  Each of our facilitators is an expert and brings a vast knowledge of their particular topic.

The workshops are held at 3820 Merton Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609 from 9:00 am-11:00 am
Registration begins at 9:00 am, and the workshops begin at 9:30 am.

Our January 7th workshop will feature all of our presenters and it’s FREE.  You’ll get to know our facilitators, ask questions, and learn to embrace your best life now and feel empowered to move forward!
