In the book, Creating a Healthy Divorce, J.J. Goldwag reflects on techniques that can take us from feelings of restlessness, failure, and loss to unconditional happiness. Goldwag goes to the root of why unhappiness occurs in the first place and draws upon his own divorce experiences to uncover the ways toward a healthy recovery. He takes us down the path of sharpening our awareness, seeing clearly, and maintaining proper perspective during one of life’s most emotional times. Through a reconnection with our true nature, we can remain at peace and gracefully overcome all obstacles. When we understand how to break away from destructive thoughts, and become anchored in the unchanging essence of our inner self, then life becomes a joy, regardless of what we may face.
