10 Break-up Lessons for the Modern Woman

Just to let you know, I’ve lacked in the inspiration department lately…as if you couldn’t tell.  I realized that it’s not that I don’t have anything to write about, but it’s that I have too much to write about.  Am I making any sense at all?  If not, click out, do your search, and go visit one of those “other” blogs.  I’m really done with worrying about what my readers think about my every word.  Don’t get me wrong; I love you, but the stress is not worth it.  I am who I am. Love me. Hate me.  It’s all a part of the Journey…

I’ve come just far enough through a break up with my husband of almost nineteen years to learn and understand some things.  Dare I share them with you?  YES!  They might help someone out there…

1.  Fear (not people) is controlling and always gets in the way of your dreams and goals.

2.  Be good to yourself.  If you don’t, know one else will.

3.  Be careful around addicting substances and people.  Hook, line, and sinker…that’s all I have to say about that.

4.  Don’t put yourself in emotionally charged situations; such as, weddings, funerals, graduations, baby showers.

5.  If you feel yourself sabotaging your health, wellness, dreams, get accountable…damn quick!

6.  Drink lots of water…I always say that!

7.  Don’t make important decisions when emotionally compromised ( it’s OK to choose salad dressing and stuff like that).

8.  Believe in your ability to make it through anything…no matter what!

9.  Accept responsibility for YOUR actions.  That means there may be consequences, too.

10.  You can never take words back…

I hope that you find everything you want out of life, that your journey is adventurous, and you make effort everyday to get closer to your authentic self.  Add your best break up tip if you dare…

Be Beautiful-Be Creative-Be Happy!

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone
