Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 26: Changing your mind is OKAY!

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 
We change our mind all of the time, don’t we?
 
But how do you treat yourself when you do change a decision that you have made? Guess what? It isn’t time to beat yourself up. It is time to be curious, to question it, check it and then be all in on your new decision: whether it is to stay the course or do something different. 
 
Easy? Maybe not, but I’ve got you! Take a listen, or read the transcript, below.

Your Empty Nest Coach Podcast, Episode 24: With My Child Heading to College, are the Thoughts I am Having Normal?

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!
 
My future empty nest friend, I want to talk about the normal thoughts that you may expect to have as you prepare for your child heading to school. 
 
Our minds like to be creative. Here are some that I’ve heard from friends, clients, and family: 
 
  • Will they ever bathe in college?
  • Will they find a community that welcomes them?
  • How will they focus enough to study with the many distractions available on a college campus?
  • What the heck am I going to do with my time?
  • Will they eat well?
  • Will they party too much and drop out of school?
  • What if they take seven years to get through school?
  • Motherhood is over!
