About Tanisha

Hello All,

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and learn more about me and what I hope will be a guide for overcoming divorce. I welcome and encourage everyone to leave me comments.

First and foremost, I’m a God-fearing woman, who tries hardest to live my life according to his will. Now, this doesn’t mean that I don’t make mistakes, but they’re never intentional. I’m a firm believer in generating positivity whereever I go.

The purpose for this blog is to help others successfully overcome divorce, when it’s not necessarily their decision. While divorce is never easy, there are positive changes from within that are necessary to overcome it in a positive way. However, you have the power to deal with it in a healthy manner or allow it to take hold over you.

It’s my prayer that you know that there is life after divorce. Every life lesson should be a learning one. This isn’t a place for you to dwell on the negative, but delight in the idea that happiness can be on the other side.

Once again, I want to thank you so much for visiting my page and I truly hope that we grow a great friendship. Hopefully, you’ll be able to say to yourself…”I’m Divorced & I’m OK with that” too!

    Tanisha, thanks for your comment on divorce. I didn’t think people cared to talk about it and instead just went on with there life. This is something we need to talk about and overcome because, there is life after a divorce. We know that through God all things are possible but, we are human and sometimes we do dwell on the fact that we are single again ad sometimes lonely. To all of the divorcies, out there remember you are not alone and God does conquer all. Stay Blessed.

      I appreciate your comment. Too often, I find that you’re not entirely able to control the situation, as was my case. Sometimes what you want, isn’t what the other party wants and you’re not able to make people stay. So, I wanted to share with others that you should use any situation, as a learning one. I felt that people don’t talk about it enough, which causes the divorce rates to be higher. B/c by not addressing, others re-enter marriage never reflect on what could have been done differently to avoid another similar situation. And it’s true, we need to understand that we’re never alone.

    I appreciate your candid look at the life within divorce. I, like you, never saw myself getting a divorce until the day it happened. However, God has allowed me to heal and use it as a source of ministry to help other women facing similar situations. Even though it hurt in the beginning I can say, in the words of Marvin Sapp, I am stronger, wiser and better because of it. Keep allowing God to use you and you never realize how many others you are blessing in the midst.

      You’re so right. I didn’t know it when I was in the midst of it that the outcome would be this awesome. But the scripture Romans 8:28 said that it would be. I feel that God’s calling for my life is to show others how negative is overcome by positive if you have Jesus guiding your walk. I have talked to so many who have reached out to me, because of it and I’m so, so thankful. May God continue to bless you in your walk too.

    Hi Tanisha,

    I found your blog through the Life After 35 blog. I am at the tail end of my divorce process and love how you’ve just laid everything out there for people like me to relate to. I was very guilty in the beginning for wanting to leave my marriage, my home, my kids, the life I thought I was “supposed” to live. But one day I realized God (or the Universe, as I sometimes like to refer to the Creative Force out there) doesn’t want us to be miserable. He wants us to live to our full potential, to walk in His light, so that we can serve others as best as we can. If it meant I needed to leave my marriage to do so, I realized it was OK.

    I’ve been the happiest I’ve ever been these last two years of my life, and I do credit it with having faith that a higher power has plans for me that are slowly being revealed, and all I have to do is receive those instructions. Sounds like you are doing the same, so bless you and keep doing what you’re doing!

      I wholeheartedly believe if you are diligently seeking God, all things work together for good (Rom. 8:28). I believe that it’s God desire that all marriages work. But he ultimately knows us and he knows that sometimes we have to go thru these experiences to teach us valuable lessons. That’s what I’m learning. I have been able to use my experiences to work with married ladies who are considering divorce and coach them toward restoration. And God is working wonders for them and it’s so beautiful. So, I believe that while my marriage didn’t work out, I can use my experience to help other marriages be healed.
      I’m glad that you’re using your experience for positive too!
      God bless you.
