Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 29: Christine, What Will I Do With My Time, and What Should I Do Next?

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 

I can’t begin to tell you how much I needed this episode when I wrote it. Throughout our life, we experience change. Sometimes it is expected, sometimes it is not. When we are unable to be patient with ourselves through the transition, things can get a little off course and “boil over.” 

In this episode, I talk about the importance of a simmer in a beef stew and what that has to do with your life.

You are preparing for the empty nest ahead as your child(ren) prepares, heads off to, and experiences college.

Changes in four years since I first created this page: moved twice as a family, navigated all four years of out of state college for daughter (now graduated), I lost weight, started taking better care of myself, started working full-time while building this business, turned 50-years-old, hubby above is now ex-hubby, got a great new job, cranked out 150+ podcast episodes, attended my first podcasting conference, spoke at the next one, and just bought a manufactured home for me (and my daughter for as long as she needs to be there) to live in. Empty Nest Success doesn’t always look like over the moon happiness. Sometimes, it looks like accepting what is, processing emotions, and moving forward as peacefully as possible with little drama – and that feels amazing! Up next: move to the new home ✅and change my name (almost there)- then I’ll be ready to dive back in here! 💚 – 06/14/2022
