Hello, my amazing friend. 

A new episode, a totally new format, and 2021 has already shown it isn't giving us a break. Should you feel overwhelmed, I recorded this message to give you permission to reset yourself, rather than typing a whole bunch of stuff here.

As always, I'm cheering you on. I can't wait to see the work you do in your life to allow you to make a difference in your own life, the life of your loved ones ...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    When this episode goes live, I'll be in my car, traveling to see my daughter's senior art show, and then will bring her home for winter break a couple of days later. Honestly, when she headed off to campus, I did not have high expectations that her school would continue on-campus through Thanksgiving. It is nice to have a pleasant surprise in 2020 - one that requires no major thought ...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    This topic seems to be either a big part of your life or is a taboo topic in what I've witnessed. I haven't run into many humans in my age range that comfortably discuss divorce - except for a fab podcaster I mention in this episode. Even when a divorce doesn't personally impact someone, the discomfort is almost always visible when divorce is mentioned in a conversation.

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Breaks benefit us. We know this.

    Why, then, is it incredibly difficult for us to take the time for ourselves? As mothers, we tend to be experts at not taking breaks. So much so that when we do have downtime, we may not be sure what to do with ourselves. 

    Hmm, a micro-level of the whole empty nest experience, isn't it? 

    It might be thirty minutes sitting in your car in your driveway or a p...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    If you have a child in college, and they'll continue to be a college student next year, it is time to complete the FAFSA!

    It is also time to think about winter break. 

    Whether they were on-campus or not, I've got you covered in this episode as, it isn't always a party when they return home. 🎈

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    In this episode, I spill the beans on an embarrassing moment in my middle school years. I had not planned to dive into that story, but ideas and concepts sometimes appear, and I go with the flow.

    Goodness gracious, there is so much power in laughing at yourself. 

    This episode topic originated from an Instagram Reel where I poked fun at "life coaches" (mostly myself) and our my abundan...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Have you ever wondered how long you will be experiencing empty nest syndrome? 

    You aren't alone! It is a commonly searched phrase on the internet.

    I did a light bit of research for this episode,  and share my thoughts on the time frame I found listed high in my search results.

    I'd love to know your thoughts.

    This transition is one that can be as beautiful or heart-wrenching as you all...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Have you experienced being peaceful and then having someone ask you, "what is wrong?" or said, "what is wrong with you; why are you upset?"

    It seems bizarre. But if your behavior is different from what others are used to, they are interpreting your change as not calm, while all the while, you are feeling an inner stillness.

    Let's let them be them, while you remain your new...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Some years the unexpected is more the norm than the norm (whatever that means). The unexpected has a way of leveling us up, stretching us, and making us stronger. When we focus on a specific project or route for our lives, the unexpected may cause gut reactions such as,

  • "Why have I been working on this project the whole time?" or
    "My work must have moved out of my zone of genius.&...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Sometimes challenges - and opportunities - pop up in our life. What do you make them mean? I explore this in today's episode.

    🗨 "Life isn’t a one way, smooth sailing go-kart course, or street. It has detours. It has bumps. It has U-turns sometimes. Yes, sometimes we change course consciously, by making a decision, or we change our mind. But other times, life forces us to chang...

    Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend,

    Believe it or not, non-empty-nest humans listen to my podcast!

    What?

    Yep!

    Since I create these episodes with someone in mind who isn't quite yet in the empty nest, this makes sense! Sure, many of my examples are empty nest specific, but you can change them to apply to your current circumstance. Empty nest or not, thanks for listening, my beautiful friend!
