121: A Motherhood Memory Book and The Rest of 2020

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 work. In this episode, I mention the idea of a motherhood memory book and share my podcast plans for the remainder of 2020. Be sure to subscribe to my podcast in your favorite podcast player, if you haven't already, as that is the best way to be notified of new episodes.

Enjoy time with your family this holiday season, my empty nest friend, and remember that you are amazing! šŸ—Ø "... what if we were to create a Motherhood Memory Book that allows us to capture large lessons learned, or celebrate accomplishments that arenā€™t just our childā€™s sporting event, scholarship honor, first steps?

119: Let's Talk About Divorce in the Empty Nest Does the Empty Nest Cause Divorce?

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. Somehow, this is surprising in 2020, despite the level of surprises in 2020. Divorce is a word. We choose how much power we allow the WORD to have in our life. If you are in the process of a divorce, outside of the financial and legal implications (I can't speak to those), you do have the opportunity to move forward in a way that will serve you well - or not. šŸ—Ø "Life is a beautiful mess. Make it YOUR beautiful mess and create a masterpiece going forward. You get to decide who youā€™ll be. Donā€™t think for a moment that you are defined by divorce. You are more than divorced. You are amazing you, who happened to have experienced divorce." This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

118: The Benefit of Taking Time Off - Listener Requested āš 

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 parking lot with your favorite music, or it might be more than that. Find something that will rejuvenate you in some way, and do it. Head to your CEO of Your Life's Toolbox for inspiration. You are amazing. Now take some time for yourself to uncover a bit more amazing-ness than you are allowing yourself to see right now.šŸ’š šŸ—Ø "We all know it makes sense to take the break, to rejuvenate, to get the sleep you need, to hydrate yourself, to eat well, but sometimes our protector thinks they know better."

116: Laughing At Yourself - Are you a tissue box or a tissue šŸ˜‚

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 abundant use of analogies. And when I say extreme use - a few of you thought I was serious with my Reel - which made me laugh at myself more. šŸ˜‚ Thank you for that. Consider for a moment what life would be like if you laughed at yourself a bit more: not in a cruel way but a, "Well, I see the silliness in that, and I don't take myself too seriously," kind of way. In the end, it may alleviate the pain a bit when another human laughs because you've already released the power the situation could have held on your life. Cheers and Giggles! šŸ—Ø "What if your protector could slide on a pair of sunglasses that had a funny filter. Would anything change for you?"

114: I'm Calm. Why are people telling me I'm not? šŸ¤”

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.

113: When Something Unexpected Comes Along Pots on the Stove šŸ³

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." Or the dreaded: "Wow, I've been on the wrong path this whole time!" Sure, that could be the case, but when we zoom out to the bigger picture of our life, it might only be time to move that project to the warming oven for a bit until other things have matured. You'll never go wrong if you consider both before making a big decision. šŸ—Ø "Try different things, and know that some ā€œrecipes in the pots' are going to cook up a lot quicker than you were expecting."
