Vindy Teja credits her commitment to surviving and thriving with being able to manage her emotions and mental state during her divorce and you can too.

My circumstances that could have easily robbed me of my equilibrium and left me dwelling in that yucky swamp, really did make me stronger, wiser, and more loving. That is because I had great support and did what it took internally and externally to reach a more objective vantage point. From there, I could see the value and opportunities in my life. I help my clients to reach the place where they can do the same for themselves. The unexpected bonus? A better sense of humor, or at least I like to think. When you have cried a lot, and there is nothing left to do or nothing that can be done in the moment…there’s laughter. Laugh at yourself, people, the situation, life. It is amazing how much personal power and coping can come from that release.

Once you realize your self-worth, what you bring to the table and the person are, nothing, and I mean nothing can stop you. So, you fell, but you got up! So, you got knocked around, but you fought back and here you are taking control of the life you want! Remember, it is not how you start the journey but how you finish it! Keep me posted on what yours looks like because I guarantee it is going to be fabulous like you! Vindy Teja, LL.B is a Professional Life & Divorce Coach, TEDx Speaker (“With This Prenup I Thee Wed”), Author of, “YOLO: Essential Life Hacks for Happiness, and Co-Author in the anthology Passed Down From Mom: A Collection of Inspiring Stories About Moms and Motherhood,” and a proud single parent.

Ilyssa Panitz: What can you tell me about you?

Vindy Teja: Like immigrants from around the world who had been welcomed into Canada, my father and mother had dreams of living in a safe and democratic society…
