Voyage of Discovery As Seen Through Your New Eyes

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
– Marcel Proust

So many times we look at our problems, our challenges, the same way, with the same “eyes,” over and over and over. And yet we are surprised when we see the same results.

Instead, why not take a real voyage of discovery by trying a different perspective, seeing the situation with new eyes?

  • If you always look at something only from your point of view, instead try looking at it from “their” point of view.
  • Or, regardless of who “wins”, what does “success” look like for you? If your goal is to truly be able to move on from a bad situation, “winning” in the traditional sense often does not equal “success.”
  • Conversely, what does “failure” look like?  Maybe you get exactly what you are asking for, but what is the cost to you? to your family?  20 years from now will you consider this a success or a failure?  Hmmmm….

What do you see on your voyage of discovery with your new eyes? A possible solution?!! A powerful path forward? Try out your “new eyes” the next time you work on a life challenge and see what wonders you can discover!!!

Inspirational River Quote – Row!

“When there is no wind…ROW!!”

– Latin Proverb

Gotta love this one. There is more than one path to your dreams…and at some point (or many points) along the way you are going to have to go to Plan B and use some muscle power. Persistence….it works!

Education along the way also works.  Browse our website for information on our programs, from life coaching to separation and divorce workshops to cooking classes.

“The key to change…is to let go of fear.”

— Rosanne Cash

Easier said than done, but it is do-able with the right tools and resources.  Many of us live in places of fear….for a moment, for an hour, for a day, or for extended periods of time.  When that happens, change needs to occur.

One reason we feel fear is lack of knowledge and support.  You can change that.  On June 4th our knowledgeable experts will share information about the legal, financial and emotional aspects of divorce.  You will learn about additional separation and divorce resources, from worksheets to websites, with some books and articles thrown in, as well.  You will learn about the local real estate market.  You can then make choices based on knowledge, not fear.

The workshop will empower you, arm you with knowledge.  This step alone can save you time and money as you begin to sort through the myriad of decisions  any separation or divorce situation presents.  We are here to help.  You do not need to do this alone.

River BaNC, our Separation and Divorce Workshop, will be held at Long and Foster in Ashburn, VA, on June 4th, from 8:15 AM to 1:15 PM. Details are on our website:
I have been a coach for a number of years, and my coaching practice includes separation and divorce coaching. The Ever Changing River website explains what it’s all about. I do not take the place of therapists. I work with therapists. If you or someone you know are considering separation or divorce, visit our website:
I’d also love to hear your stories. Write me to let me know what you are changing, have changed, will continue changing, to improve your life during or after divorce. I’d love to share some success stories on our website,
