Do you find yourself sighing deeply for no apparent reason?
Are you longing to reinvent yourself to become the amazing, articulate, and astute woman you know yourself to be?
Are you a stay-at-home mom wondering if there’s a life beyond carpools, ballet, soccer practice and PTA meetings?
With your nest empty, do you now want to spread your own wings?
I understand the feelings of overwhelm and hesitation of not knowing what to do next, first, or wonder about doing anything at all! As a former stay-at-home mom and an empty nester, I empathize with anyone who is contemplating that next transition.
My job description changed after my daughter left home for college and I was able to devote more time to my love of writing.
It took some time to redesign my life. Writing is my foundational tool and it can be yours as well. You are the author of your life! Grab a journal and start writing about what you want your next steps to be. Get inspired by your own wisdom from your life experiences. Go back to what you wanted to be as a child. Are those dreams still whispering to you? What about dusting off those dreams and exploring what they mean to you now? Or dream a new dream. Your journal is a safe place to begin the next chapter of your life. I promise you that you will be amazed at your thoughts and ideas when you see them written down.
