How you spend your independence day this year is completely up to you. Know this, it can be a positive, uplifting experience. It’s all up to you.

You can be with a large group of people, a smaller group, or get zen and go at it alone. The choice is yours.

If you are single, going through a break up or a divorce, don’t let the thoughts of the 4th of July weekend get you down. Get proactive with with some Divorce Detox tips to help you set your July 4th weekend just right.

The 4th is a celebration of independence, so flex that muscle and depend on yourself for enjoying the weekend. Search the Internet to find out which events around town will bring a smile to your face.

Be open to meeting new people and trying new activities. You’d be surprised at how much you will discover about the city you live in and about yourself. Empower yourself by giving yourself permission to be happy. You are the navigator of your life.

Reach Out
Connect with others. Take A.A. Milne’s wise advice (he’s very wise after all, he wrote Winnie the Poo): “ You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

Send out an email or a Facebook post asking what others are up to. You’ll gain new information and put yourself on the 4th of July social map. There’s a tendency to presume that “everyone is busy”, but this isn’t always the case. Many people feel just like you and are equally as uncertain about their holiday plans.

Reinforce Positivity
Choose to celebrate this holiday. Instead of looking at this next phase of your life as the end, look at it as a new beginning. Don’t overlook the positives of breakups and divorce like extra free time, no one to be accountable to, and becoming a stronger person. Being optimistic is worth the effort. Research shows that it can lift your spirit, which can keep you from becoming a victim of the circumstances of your life (and your Ex).

Be open, have fun and learn from your new experiences. And remember not to alienate yourself. You aren’t alone. Your Divorce Detox Team is just a phone call away.
