When I feel as though I need to set some new goals, or my current ones need to be adjusted, I start by designating some time to actually set goals and reconnect with my life’s purpose. I seclude myself in a room with water and snacks, put on inspirational music to help set the mood, and then I begin to write what I would like to see in my life. I do not set any goals at this time. It is simply reflection. When do I feel inspired? What am I doing when I feel like I am my best self? What makes me happy? How do I get more of those moments in my life? Where would I have to grow to have more of those moments in my life? Once I ask those questions, THEN I start to write down potential goals, each followed by the question: How strongly do I believe this goal will get me what I want? I then get some feedback from others, make some adjustments, and finish by asking that same question of each goal, only worded slightly differently: Do I strongly believe this goal will get me what I want? If the answer “yes” to that then I set it in stone and get to work!

Let’s talk divorce; not the words most people want to hear. In most divorce cases the parties involved have come to an agreement in the decree of divorce as to who is getting the property, any equitable interest, or the fact that they need to refinance to remove the other party. If a deed has been recorded to transfer the interest of one of the parties, we need to make sure that the appropriate verbiage has been included to release any interest or equitable lien that may have been created through the Divorce Decree. If a deed has been recorded without a recital, you will need to investigate to see if additional documentation is needed. In short, when a divorce is involved in one of your transactions you will need to obtain a copy of the decree. It may take some time when working with individuals that thought the deed that they prepared without anyone’s help took care of the problem. Recitals on your deed should reference the case number and jurisdiction.
