Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 27: What Are You Making Grades Mean?

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 

So, I wonder if this episode is the one that gets my listeners worked up. These are thoughts that we don’t hear often, so I’m putting them out there. If you aren’t a fan of my approach – it is all good, differences are what makes this world interesting.

However, if you can barely stand to listen to my take on grades, I challenge you to take a look at your thoughts and be curious as to the why. Ask yourself, “Who would I be in the world, if for a moment, I tried on these new thoughts and could find myself in a space where I believe them?”

Let me know where you are and let’s chat about it.  If you are happy with who you show up in the world as with your thoughts on this topic, then you are all good!

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 
Anne (my guest) and I touched on this in my last episode – how to be the emotional adult in the room.  College is a significant change – and when they go far enough away that they can’t stop by for dinner – it is a REALLY SIGNIFICANT change. 
 
You can handle it. I know you can. Take some deep breaths, do some thought work and you’ve got this.
