Divorce Can Feel Like a Bad Hair Day

Salli's Divorce Support Blog

While I was sitting in my hairstylist's chair a few years ago she said something that changed my life forever!

She said, "If you're having a bad hair day, Salli, it's because your hair is still wet. Just keep blow drying and working with it until it's dry. You'll never have another bad hair day again!"

So I tried it, and she was right!

Since I was given that handy little cosmetology tip so long ago, I've applied that lesson to a variety of situations in life. For instance, if you aren't happy, just give the situation time to progress. Happiness will come.

I have a new favorite quote that speaks to this topic:

"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end!"

Divorce can be like a super bad hair day. Nothing feels right, you aren't your best self and often feel ill at ease and out of sorts. You may even wonder if you'll ever feel on top of life again.

But just be patient. Patience is a vital ingredient to happiness. If life doesn't feel right today, just be patient until you see improvement. It will come. Remember, even the good transitions require an adjustment period.

Watch and wait--everything will be okay!
