Midlife Empty Nest

Is your nest getting emptier?

It won’t be an empty nest because you will still be in it!

That is the best news because you will still need it.

As a beautiful space to process the loss and sadness of change.

But as you are preparing kids to fly, remind yourself you will fly again also.

After all, you’ve graduated too.

And everything is shifting in perfect time.

As they are off finding themselves, you will find yourself as well.

In the middle of fear, overwhelm and confusion about who you are now supposed to be.

Re-imagining your life new is something you can choose to get so very excited about!

Because you are still becoming only better.

The nest that you created has been a perfect place to grow them from love.

But that also includes you.

It is never too early to start preparing for the flight.

I have learned the greatest things from coaching and I want to share them with.

The journey starts today.

Come along, follow and grow with me.

Is Your Teenager Breaking Up With You?

Is your teenager breaking up with you?

My middle daughter broke up with me before I broke up with her years ago.

When she stopped nursing on Mother’s Day at 11 months.

And now it feels like is it happening again at 16.

Lately, I have not been feeling the love.

My brain asks: What happened? Did you do something wrong? Will you ever be close again?

Where did the love go?

The love that was written in those sweet letters by tiny fingers…

The love that never wanted to let go.

Let go.

So she can have space to figure out who she wants to become.

So I can reimagine our relationship as we both grow within it.

And redefine how I best love her through the changes.

By thinking the best thoughts about her.

And leading love by example.

The truth is love never goes anywhere.

It just evolves to become more.

If we let it.Β 


Midlife Late Bloomer

“It’s okay to be a late bloomer at loving yourself,” one late bloomer said to the other.

The most important thing is that you’ve arrived to the awareness.

That self love is what you’ve been missing.

I know you’ve tried.

By taking shortcuts in the journey.

Thinking the work is accomplished.

And filling what’s missing with other things.

But it is never done.

And that is what has been keeping you stuck.

The uncomfortable feeling of not reaching the destination yet.

One day believing you are close.

And the next you have miles to go.

Letting your circumstances decide and comparing yourself to others.

Wondering what is wrong with you.

It all gets so tiring really.

Come and rest now.

Because making it to awareness finally lets you pace yourself.

By instead zooming out the lens of you in your life.

And simply being the watcher for a while.

To finally feel compassion for the person you see.

And show up gentler in your journey.

It is the most loving choice of all.

That self love simply means committing to.

The slow blooms are the most beautiful ones to watch.

You are the one worth waiting for.

Take your time.

You are not behind.

And I’m right here to guide you.

The Midlife Mirror

At midlife, I found coaching and discovered I was so much more than I ever knew.

And I like her.

I am so glad I didn’t miss her.

Guess what momma?

You can have that too.

Sometimes we just need a little help.

Because at midlife as our kids start to leave and we watch our own parents getting older, we naturally take a look in the mirror of our own life.

What is reflecting back to us?

Traces of who we once were and more often than we would like to admit…

-Who we didn’t give ourselves a chance to become.

Suddenly we are starting to feel our shelf life as humans

With possibilities more limited.

I’ve been there.

But it is actually these thoughts causing regret and scarcity that keep our lives small.

Along with lost perspective of the immeasurable contribution we’ve made in our lives already.

That limits us from fully realizing ourselves as so much more.

So instead of apologizing to younger self in the mirror release her from believing she ever chose wrong. In fact, she was part of God’s plan for everything happening the way that it did.

Give her a wink and thank her for passing the baton in your journey. 😘

It is only from letting her go that you can can meet the beautiful woman that is more than you ever knew.

And I wouldn’t want you to miss her either.

I would love to be that coach for you.
