Edmonton, Alberta – There’s a grief process that accompanies divorce. You’re not only grieving the loss of your relationship, but also the person you were and the hope for the life you’d planned together.
But sometimes we need something to rock our world in order to grow. According to professional life coach Sandy Miller, divorce can be a catalyst toward a revolution of self.
“In the beginning of divorce it’s devastating,” says Sandy. “You feel overwhelmed. But you can start again. You can create a new normal.”
Five years ago, Sandy went through her own transformational journey of divorce. Today, Sandy is the founder of Revolutionizing Divorce, a coaching practice dedicated to helping people understand the components of divorce and navigate their way through one of the most dramatic experiences of their lives.
“I compare it to going through a tunnel with a little headlight on your head,” says Sandy. “You can’t see much but you know you’re eventually going to get through it. I have their best interests at heart and I help them break down the process into tiny manageable steps so it’s not overwhelming to them.”
Sandy says her whole outlook on life is you either become “bitter or better.” The process of navigating your way through divorce can be broken down into three distinct phases: resolve, reclaim and rebuild.
“To resolve is to understand that no amount of work is going to save the relationship. We can’t move on to the next phase, heal or move forward until we come to that internal resolve,” explains Sandy. “To reclaim is to reclaim who you are. What are your strengths? What have you always wanted to do? To rebuild is to feel a shift within yourself to finally create the life you want to live.”
