Well, after a little over two years in Nashville, we find ourselves at a crossroads. In the next year-and-a-half, our youngest will be in college and we will have an empty nest. Obviously this brings up lots of emotions and for me it’s a very bittersweet time. It’s also a time of re-evaluating what we want to do with this next chapter of our lives. I think of this milestone as a gift. It’s an opportunity to really dig deep and think about my priorities, my unfulfilled dreams and where I want to go next. I’m not sure what we’ll decide. But I am learning to embrace the journey more than ever before. It sounds cliche, but we are healthy and still young enough to have some really great opportunities open to us.
I’m curious to hear from any of you who have made this life transition to an empty nest. Maybe you’re there now right along with me. How is it going? Do you have a story to tell me about this journey of yours? I really want to know what it feels like to be at a crossroads of any kind. How are you handling it? How have you worked through it?
