Life Mantras are tools you can use right now to stay calm & carry on. This course teaches you the most effective strategy you can use to get through the stress of a tough day – in one piece!

The most powerful attachment we can have to another human being is marriage. When that bond is broken, we experience some pretty intense emotions – it’s like being inside an emotional blender, with our whole world thrown inside and pureed.

It’s so easy to be paralyzed and overwhelmed! Yet we still have to get to work, take care of the kids, the dog, our parents, and our friends. Then there are the nuts and bolts of the divorce itself – paperwork to be filled out, documents to be copied, meetings, phone calls, and consultations with all the professionals involved.

How the heck are we supposed to function every day with all THAT going on?

When I feel overwhelmed, angry, sad, anxious or just plain old annoyed (divorce or not!), I use Life Mantras to get me through the tough days in one piece. So what the heck are Life Mantras, and how do they work?


How it works

The root of all that stress and emotion is the self-talk that’s going on in your head, whether you realize it or not. The little devil who sits on your shoulder, whispering in your ear, telling you things that aren’t true about yourself, your ex, other people, and life in general, is your subconscious! It learned those lies by misinterpreting things that happened to you in the past – all the way back to your childhood. That little devil’s message is telling you what you really believe, deep down, about everything – and that’s what sets off emotions.

So how do we fix it? How do we turn off the self-talk, and flick the little devil off our shoulder?


Super effective tools

Do you know that life mantras are super effective at shutting down that little devil? This course will teach you not only how to turn down the volume on that self-talk, but create new, healthy self talk. It’s like having a big honkin’ angel land on your shoulder, that knocks the little devil right off. 


Answer these questions to verify if  Life Mantras can help you:

~Do you feel worthless and discarded? There’s a Life Mantra for that.

~Are you feeling like life, the world, and everything in it is crap, and you have the worst luck of anyone you know? There’s a Life Mantra for that, too.

~Finding yourself frequently sad, overwhelmed, angry, or anxious? Life Mantras can heal those emotions.

~Would you like to be able to handle the ex with grace, instead of feeling bullied? There’s a Life Mantra to build your confidence and strength.

~Maybe you feel like you’re a magnet for pain – why does it always find you? Life Mantras teach you how to stop being a pain magnet, and start finding peace and happiness, instead!

~Have that feeling like you’re just never going to make it through the day in one piece? There are Life Mantras that not only help you get through in one piece, but do it like a rock star!

When you finish this course, you’ll also be able to create your own Life Mantras to get you through whatever happens with confidence, calmness, and a positive attitude.


Special Bonuses, Treats, & Goodies

You’ll also have a special Divorce by Rose group to compare notes with – others who have taken this course, too! – and access to Susan Petang, DbR’s Divorce Stress Expert, Certified Life Coach, and Battle Tested Warrior Queen.
