Life after divorce, whether by choice or not, can be difficult to come to terms with, but relationship expert Jo Lamble has some wise words for YOURLifeChoices member Joan, who wants to kick-start her new life.
I’m 55 and my divorce has just gone through. I thought it would be the start of a new life – but I have no life! What can I do to start living and not waste the next 20 years?

You’re right – it’s time to start living. But it’s important to be realistic. It might take a while to develop a new life. You might try a number of things before you find your passion. The trick is to be open to all opportunities. Accept all invitations. Consider any idea – no matter how far fetched. What have you been putting off for years? What were you unable to do in the past? Scan the newspapers and internet for inspiration. An advertisement for a trip or a class or a lecture may well lead to new horizons. Who knows who you could meet when you step outside your comfort zone and try something new?
