161: Empty Nest Success ⏲️ Quick Take - It is Time To Honor Yourself πŸ’š

Hello, my amazing friend. πŸ‘‹

Welcome to my first Quick Take episode!

Inspiration hit me just as I was wrapping up recording episode 160 to look back at some content (no plan) and see if I could come up with three quick episodes that way. I did!

I love this idea for reviewing content from the past, and it provides an easy way to deliver weekly episodes again. 

Let's see how this goes! 

As always, I'm cheering you on! πŸŽ‰

Coach Christine,

Your Empty Nest Coach

The Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 161


This is an empty nest success quick take. A quick episode, in between my monthly episodes, where I look back at content I created before, and share it briefly. Enjoy!

[level-up music]

It feels right to look at the very first email I ever sent as part of Your Empty Nest Coach. I use Active Campaign, so I went into my emails and saw what I sent. 

In May of 2019, I was testing the system. And I sent an email to one singular person. That was me! 

The title of that email was Thursday, thoughts about β€œThat thing.” I love(d) the idea of having a Thursday thoughts about email: just quick thoughts. 

I tend to be way more wordy these days. And looking at this, I like how short and sweet this is. It didn't yet have as much to share either, though.

So here's what I said to myself: 

[music plays under this segment (reading)]

That thing you keep thinking about, that thing you keep saying, β€œI'll do it later.” 

It is time. 

Time to make a plan and honor yourself by starting now.

Do it. 

I believe in you. 

I even have a little meme there. I was fancy.

Here I am, years later, looking at this email that I sent to myself just to test things. Basically, I was creating content that I wanted to receive from others. 

Looking back at this very first email (that I sent myself) makes me incredibly thankful that I did make the plan; that I did honor myself by starting. The me [of] back then wouldn't believe the things that I have accomplished in this time. 

It has been slow and steady, beautiful, stressful (sometimes), messy for sure. 

I've felt all the emotions, but I'm ever so thankful that past me did take the time to make a plan. 

The plan doesn't have to be your boss. 

The plan can be vague. 

Sometimes just making the plan is the first step. 

Make making the plan fun. And guess what, you don't have to accomplish everything that you want tomorrow. 

Have fun with it! 

And my friend, you are amazing. πŸ’š
