105: Aaaand My Child's School Went Online Again šŸ˜®

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, I had another topic scheduled for today, but with my clients, friends, and colleagues struggling with figuring out their fall season this year due to school changes, I sat down in front of the mic to share some unscripted thoughts with you. Forgive the rabbit trails. šŸ° My friend, please know that while the next few months look like a hot mess, you can handle it. Here are some thoughts to try on. Adjust as needed. šŸ’š "This isn't what we planned at all, but we will figure out how to make it work, and I'll be patient with myself as I navigate the journey forward." "This isn't what we planned. I'm not sure what the future looks like, but I can figure out my next best step at this moment - even if it is to stare at the wall to calm my brain." Let's be real. Sometimes this is needed. "Online again: Well, I know what didn't work last time around. How can I change those areas?" "Online again: I can adapt in ways that I couldn't imagine a year ago. This won't look the way I had planned, and that's okay." šŸ—Ø "Be there for your children. All of the thoughts and anxiety that you have (about our current situation) they feel that - and they have their own. So I encourage you to get to know them no matter their age - what's going on in their mind?" This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

102: How to Help Your College Student Prepare for A Different Campus Part 1 of 2

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Fall 2020: some of our children's schools have plans for an on-campus return, and the campus won't be the campus our child(ren) left or visited. Life is different, and campus life will be no exception. While our daughter is scheduled to head back to college in less than six weeks, that may or may not come to fruition. 2020 has a sneaky way of showing us that plans are rarely concrete. In the meantime, the best thing our family can do is prep for a return to campus with the knowledge we have now. In this episode, I share some things we are doing to prepare for an on-campus semester. šŸ—Ø "If your child doesn't already have a thermometer and a first aid kit - it is time to round one up for the fall!ā€ This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

98: How to Deal With Difficult People

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, I recorded this episode a few weeks ago. Created for the moments in your life where other humans rub you the wrong way: when you know you have to work around them (or with them), and something about them pushes your buttons. To be clear, I would not use this process for racist, abusive, or anti-humanity situations. But for those button-pushers that you need to navigate around in your life, seeking peace within yourself isn't meant to help them, it is to help you. Imagine finding different ways to navigate your interactions going forward. We don't learn these things to quickly tell our friends and family how to do things better so they'll be a better person. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy? No, WE change how we handle things, and then others may want to know more - or they won't - either way, you have more peace in your life. Life gets interesting when peace is within you. šŸ—Ø "Another human in your life is always outside of your fence. You canā€™t control them. You canā€™t control their thoughts or actions. What you CAN control is your thoughts about them.ā€ This episode's full transcript is available on my website.
