In 2014, Aubrey Keefer’s marriage ended after six years. In the wake of the split, she and her two girls sold and moved out of their family home. It was a lot to process. Through it all, Keefer tried to focus on all the good that was still in her life. 

“You have to choose love,” the divorced mom told HuffPost recently. “Love those who matter the most, including yourself, and love the life you have.”

Keefer has come a long way in the two years since her divorce. Below, the HuffPost blogger shares five things that helped her cope and get to a happier, healthier place today.
