Our Story

Our Story

Get Better Not Bitter was born through the struggles of my own life. I found myself divorced, a single parent, starting my life over. I was 37 years old without a job and going through a painful divorce. I had given up my financial independence and my dreams for my family, a decision I did not regret, but found that I had handicapped myself through a series of decisions. I remember vividly a turning point where I was so angry, so unhappy, and realized that I did not ever want to feel this way again. It was this decision to figure out a new, better way of life that set into motion a happier, healthier lifestyle. To Get Better, Not Bitter & Thrive!
