Intensity in the Empty Nest

natalie caine newAs we ease out of Summer, and into Fall, many of us will agree that we\’ve been through an intense time. That\’s why it is now time to take a few minutes for ourselves, and why it is especially important to review our core values.

For me, when I remember that I am more than what I am in the midst of living, then I can be present with perseverance and hope.

Wondering where to start? Here are some suggestions:
  • Review your talents.
  • Check out how you are doing with your self-worth. Don\’t allow your inner critic to blind you.
  • Get outside and look at the changing colors.
  • Focus on what is working in your life.
  • Speak up.
  • Take baby steps for newness.
  • Lower your expectations in order not to set yourself up for being hurt. Reality checks of this nature can really help.
  • Keep in mind that differences allow for curiosity and compassion. Notice what limits you and stop the chatter.  Stand tall.

I could go on and on with what I need to hear myself remember, but fortunately for you and for me, I need to get out the door.

LOVE THE LIFE YOU HAVE

Take good care,
Natalie

Natalie Caine is the founder of Empty Nest Support Services. When her daughter was a senior in high school, she realized that as a soon-to-be “empty nester,” she would be undergoing a major life shift. Not wanting to confront this transition alone nor have her many friends face this abyss without strong support, she created a support services group, which quickly grew into a new career and an exciting full-time business.
