Finding Your Passion and Purpose

Who am I without my children around? We'll help with re-discovering YOU.

“And suddenly you know, it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”

-Meister Eckhart

Dear Reader, 

As I sit down to write this blog post, I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude and excitement for the new beginnings that are unfolding in my life. Finalizing my book and launching my new website has been a season of change, growth, and transformation for me, much like the arrival of spring after a long winter season. I am thrilled to share with you the journey that has led me to this moment and the heartfelt mission I have to help mothers fall in love with their future again. I want to help mothers wash away the fear that sometimes can be tied to Empty Nesting and instead, embrace this chapter with clarity, excitement, courage, and a deep sense of community. 

Reflecting on the past two years, I realize now that many of the challenges and uncertainties I had to overcome were not roadblocks but rather stepping stones leading me to where I am today. Every moment of confusion and doubt was creating space for new and better opportunities to enter my life. It is in these moments of chaos and change that the seeds of new beginnings were planted, slowly unfolding, waiting to blossom in their own time. Adjusting to children leaving the nest, feeling a little lost, and not having my next chapter defined forced me to take a “soul level” inventory of my life and what I wanted for my future. I knew to my core I needed to get back in touch with who I was as an individual in order to create my next best chapter. And I knew I wasn’t alone. So I decided to write a book, create an online community, and share my experiences with you.

The Empty Nester Club is a sanctuary for women to help navigate and discover joy during the profound transition into Empty Nesting. I believe that true beauty lies in the connections we forge, the stories we have the courage to share, and the experiences that unite us as a community. You are encouraged to show up as your authentic self, define your next chapter, and dream big. This platform is my gift to you, a refuge of support, connection, and love. My team and I have poured our hearts and souls into creating a space where we can all come together, learn from each other, and navigate this new chapter of our lives with grace, strength, and a little lightheartedness. I invite you to join us on this journey, sign up for our Notes from the Nest newsletter, and be part of a family of like-minded women who are here to uplift and empower each other. And please share this with a friend or two you know that could use a little extra love and encouragement in this phase of life.

As my team and I prepare to launch my new website and finish up my book (due out September 2024), I am filled with hope and excitement not just for my future, but for yours as well. When I started this project over two years ago, I had hoped the right partners would come into my life to help deliver this message to the world. Collaborating with the immensely talented Sweet Pea Ink Creative, and my incredible publishing team over at Storybuilders has been a dream come true. Their understanding of my vision and unwavering support have filled my heart with joy and gratitude, and I am committed to turning all that love back to you. To support you through your own journey of new beginnings and transformation, and to give you a new sense of lightness and purpose.

Welcome to the family, dear reader. Together, let us learn how to pour some of that love back into ourselves because we all deserve deep fulfillment on a soul level. When your kids start to move out of the house, accept that letting them grow up and move on is not saying goodbye, it’s learning how to say Hello to yourself again. I see you and can’t wait for you to uncover what’s in store for you.

Wishing you joy in the journey.
