A miscarriage, a huge Christmas Day fight, and the decision to make a change.
Jen Riday was able to pivot and find her happiness as a married woman. Through her experience, she proves to us that if you’re feeling stuck, divorce isn’t always the answer. Maybe all you need is an intuitive hit and the mindfulness to create time for your self-care.
Tune in to this episode on Choosing Your Happiness in Marriage with Jen Riday
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️ All you need is five minutes. Yoga is Jen Riday’s choice of grounding activity. If you’re scared of starting a new activity, remember that all good things are on the other side of fear. Your brain (and even your partner) will thank you for it.
✔️ Expand time. The more you believe you have time, the more it’s true. Cut out activities that don’t serve you. For Jen Riday, it’s social media and streaming, unless it’s with family.
✔️ Accept your partner’s differences. They don’t always have to enjoy the same things you do. But their presence and energy must transform you and allow you to live unapologetically YOU. Give each other the grace to let them be who they want to be.
✔️ How happy are you willing to let yourself feel? Your happiness is your responsibility, and you get to create it. Think of ways to make today great, and allow yourself to do it!
✔️ Happiness is the greatest gift you can give. If you can do the things that make you feel truly alive, it’s not a selfish act – it’s everything you need to share your vibrancy with the world.
