Parenting adult children can be a joy and a challenge! My kids will get hurt, they will fall down, but I will be there to pick them up and always love them. It is no longer my job to discipline.
How can I learn a new skill when my brain is supersaturated? What does that mean anyhow? As an over 40 empty nester, am I somehow diminished in my capacity to learn?
Not ready for the Denny’s Early Bird Special days, I began researching the Tampa Bay area for fun and active things to do. Oh boy, what did I get myself into! With so many things to explore, there is no way I could list them all. Empty Nesters take a look!
Let us explore the difference between empty nesting and empty-nest syndrome and start thinking about what you can do to avoid it.
My heart is prompted to write about my empty nesting fears during this global pandemic. Since the kids all went their separate ways, in fact, I have wondered who I could be other than Mom. I admit, it's a daunting thought and I have another half of my life to live!
My purpose for years was to take care of my family in every way possible and that chapter is basically finished. All four kids are adults and I have the chance to be me again. But who am I? Join me on this journey to discovery and possibly you will learn a thing or two as well!
