At Mighty + Bright, we believe divorce is an opportunity.
At Mighty + Bright, we believe in getting back on the horse after we’ve been bucked off. We believe in fighting for our kids, in not letting divorce define us, and in coming out the other side a total rock star. We believe in grit, resilience, and the power of making lemonade out of exceedingly sour lemons.
We know that in your darkest moments, you just want it to be over. But we also know that going through this — each and every miserable day — makes us stronger, teaches us lessons, and helps us be better role models for our children.
When you go through a divorce, you can choose one of three options: let it make you bitter; go into denial and jump into a new relationship; or grab it by the reins and embrace your new life. We hope you choose the third door.
We at Mighty + Bright are in the business of empowerment. We band together, we support each other and we support our kids. If it takes a village to raise a child, consider us your village. This may be one of the most stressful times of your life but hear this: you are not alone. Because we know you are strong, and you can do this, but we also know that together, we are mighty. And your future looks bright.
About the Mighty + Bright Founder
Mighty + Bright was founded by Sara Olsher, mom to a little girl with a big personality, wearer of cowboy boots, and drinker of exceptionally strong coffee. In 2012, she packed up her 18 month old and left her marriage. What followed was about four years of intense personal growth and the birth of Mighty + Bright.
Sara whole-heartedly believes that divorce is full of silver linings. It’s a chance to get to know yourself (like, your real self, not the one cares about what everyone else wants), a chance to do stuff the way you want without asking anyone else’s input, and a chance to show your kids how to handle the hard stuff head-on, with grace.
Sara’s background is in psychology and illustration, and after her divorce she used both of these skills to create tools to help her young daughter understand and cope with the major changes in her life. Her first product was the shared custody calendar, which combines research-backed methods of teaching children with bright, happy illustrations. The routine chart quickly followed.
The Mighty + Bright Community
We are passionate about positivity and believe strongly that happiness is a choice (sometimes a minute-by-minute choice) to keep focusing on our greater purpose. We’re here to inspire you, support you, and give you resources to help you and your kids through it.
Divorce is an ending, but it’s also an incredible beginning. Welcome to the rest of your life — the future is mighty bright!
