The holidays after divorce can seem daunting. We want so badly to make them special and memorable and most of all happy for us and our kids. But with the divorce comes stress and overwhelm around the holidays. We struggle with navigating the new dynamic of "family" and the holidays, that we feel like our only option is to survive the holidays and just get them over with.
As mothers we want to make the holidays special and amazing for our kids, but after divorce we aren't sure where to start.
How the Holiday's Tend to Look
We feel overwhelmed when we think that we've lost the family we used to have.
We definitely don't feel like we have the energy or time to make the holidays fun anymore or to feel the Christmas spirit.
We feel like all the old traditions that made the holidays special are tainted and ruined.
We dread getting together with family because we always come off as the "black sheep" at the party, and we leave feeling more disconnected and judged than ever.
We're sad because now we only get to see our kids half the time over the holidays; not to mention the times we don't even get to have them on Thanksgiving or Christmas.
We feel guilty for the divorce and all the pain we've put our kids through and so we overspend on presents, trying to win our kids' approval that way.
And those days when we're alone over the holidays...well they just fucking suck. We spend our time alone wallowing in sadness, drinking to oblivion, bad-mouthing ourselves and our ex, eating everything in site while we binge watch bad reality TV, just so we don't have to think about how much we HATE the holidays now.
We desperately want to make the holidays as amazing and as happy as they were when we were married, but we're so confused and stressed out that we have no idea where to even start.

ARE YOU THINKING OF JOINING BUT YOUR BRAIN IS SAYING, "THIS ALL SOUNDS GREAT BUT I'M JUST NOT SURE..."
The holidays are already busy. I'm just not sure I'll have the time to fit this in.
We always think that it's the holidays, the kids, the ex, or the job that is taking up too much time and causing the stress and overwhelm, and if we add one more thing it will push us over the edge.
The truth is, you're feeling stress and overwhelm because you're worried what others will think; because you're lost in the emotional rollercoaster of loneliness and sadness about not doing it right; and you're spending the extra time you do have fighting with your ex, numbing out with social media and food, and taking your hate of the holidays out on your kids.
When you learn to manage your brain, you learn to create any kind of outcome you want in life. You want more time and less stress and overwhelm? This program will teach you how. All you have to do is decide it's important to you.
I just don't know if I should spend the money on myself.
Every mom I know struggles with this idea of spending money on themselves. It's because society tells us if we put ourselves first in any way, we will be seen as selfish. But this is a lie.
As a woman you have wants, needs and desires that need to be met to keep you functioning in an emotionally healthy role. When you feel fulfilled as a woman and a mother, you show up better in life. You love yourself more, you love your kids more, and your compassion and grace for others is at a higher level. Everything in your life is better when you take care of yourself first.
I don't know if I can trust myself to stick with it.
Most likely you think you won't stick with it because of what you've done in your past. Maybe you start things and don't finish them, and you're worried that you'll do that again here.
When you work with a coach one-on-one you learn to manage your mind. You learn to look to your future and decide what you want it to look like, rather than looking to your past.
What do you want your holiday season to look like this year and next year and the many years to come? Do you want them to continue to be sad and stressed? Or to do want to take action now with Karin as your expert guide to lead you every step of the way? Decide now and let's go!
