Empty Nester's Embrace the Newness

Posted by on April 25, 2015 at 3:10 PM

Now that the kids are gone, I could be faced with feelings of loss and the possibility that my life is empty. But that's not really the case.  However, this feeling was once real and took some time to overcome. Given a few hints and prods by friends. new discoveries have been mustered up. I must now think about myself instead of the children that are gone, and find some treats, like getting a newly styled haircut and pedicure and reviewing my wardrobe for it's sprinkling of color.

The cupboards all need cleaning, right? And there's that lovely yard that needs to be mown and raked, right?  I keep putting of taking that new class that I've been thinking of, so this  would be a great time to sign up, right? Oh, and there's that gourmet cooking claass that my friend wants me to join, and the room that I was going to redecorate and paint. Oh, and the knit scarf pattern awaits my attention, as I found it on the floor only a few days ago. 

My my my! I can't forget to go to the volunteer session this week at the NC Museum of  Science, nor the date my gal pals have made  for the birthday blast. Of course, it's always nice to sit at the computer for hours and write blogs, newsletters and more workshops for this little business,   just to try and stay on top of things. Ah... the book club meets tomorrow and I must inish that novel!

After all, I'm onto a new and exciting chapter , one in which our children would be, hopefully, as proud of me as I am of them. 

So, won't you follow along with your dreams and come with me to embrace your newness?
