48: Putting on a Show While Simmering

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend!
 
When entering the empty nest, some of us launch back into the workforce, others never have the luxury to consider staying home full-time, and yet others keep careers going part-time while raising our families. Each path is perfect for our own life. Aren’t we all amazing?
 
While this  episode’s concept is universal to a job or home life, my example is plucked right from my job. 
 
If it inspires you to behave differently, I would love to know what change you make.
