This can be a real opportunity to take control of your life and make it be what you want it to be for yourself and your children. It’s the time for you to “figure out what you want to be when you grow up”. Where would you like to be in 1 year, 3 years, 5 years? You may be focusing on what you are going to do tomorrow. Try not to think about tomorrow so much. If you think longer term it can help you achieve where you ultimately want to be rather than living day to day. You need to think big to make it big. Even if that means taking small steps forward every day to get there. Look at this as a new beginning and that you now have greater control of your own destiny. You now have the opportunity for a “do over”. Your canvas is clean and you can draw your future. Make it be what you want it to be.
