Ep #10: How to Adjust to the New “Normal” after Your Kids Leave for University

The new normal…your kid is out the door, on the way to college…

Now, that you’re in your home without him or her, are you standing there bewildered and lost feeling sorry for yourself, or are you congratulating yourself for a job well done with a  smile on your face?

Are you curious about how you will spend your newly found freedom of having fewer kid-related responsibilities or are you just completely confused and miserable about who you are without a kid at home, wondering how you’ll fill your time when your kids aren’t around?

Is the glass half empty or half full?

On this episode, we talk all about whether the glass is empty or half full when your kids leave the nest and how your perspective on this next milestone can really affect how you adjust to the new normal.

Plus, I show you how you can take the first steps to creating a life you love.
