Destination Midlife is Where Life Really Begins
As Empty Nesters we are facing lots of challenges, but the one thing I want you to remember is to embrace living life in the Middle. Here at Destination Midlife, we are learning to not only survive but to bloom in the Middle and embrace our new normal. While we may have Empty Nest Syndrome at first, we will learn to enjoy the phone calls from our now adult children.
Children leave home and our life no longer rotates on their schedules. Embracing the middle-aged living in a unique way that only parents get to experience. Remember we were training them their whole lives to be responsible adults, and productive citizens, now we have to mourn the sense of loss, pick ourselves up off the floor and live life to the fullest. So join me as we embrace Empty Nest Living and all things Destination Midlife.
Here’s a snapshot of the things you can expect.
Travel – Traveling without kids is now your new normal which means you will get to explore more exciting places. Join us as we travel into the middle years spending more time with our significant other and refinding ourselves.
The kid(s) are gone, now what?? Party like it is 1990, or before, yes it is sad, but it’s also time to stretch your wings and learn to fly again. Enjoy the journey and enjoy the midlife living as we do here at Destination of Midlife.
DIY- Do It Yourself ideas, crafts, and projects that you once enjoyed are making a comeback. Now you will have all of the time in the world for your projects, here we enjoy crafting with our Cricut products and doing a little sewing now and again.
Join us in our crafting adventures, because we should always enjoy what we are doing! It is also a great way to keep you from having a Midlife Crisis because you are keeping your mind and hands busy in an all-new way. You might even be able to keep things alive that once wasn’t possible! Destination Midlife is kind of like starting your life over and learning to love your self and spouse in a whole new way.
Cooking for an entire family is different than cooking for two! Here we will have quick and easy recipes that support healthy living with a few cheat meals thrown in. What will you do with all of your free time? Not spend it all in the kitchen, we can hope!
Self Care -Who are you now that your child is leaving home and leaving you with an Empty Nest? You are still a mom, grandma, aunt, sister etc, you just need to find yourself again in a new light. Take some time to learn about YOU because YOU are worth it! Plus having an adult daughter or adult son for a friend is a whole new level of parenting. Plus you might even have grandbabies to enjoy soon!
Having grandkids teaches you how to love all over again!
Here’s a picture of our little “Tater” as we call him online, he’s growing like a weed, so check back often so we can brag to each other about our love of the midlife living!
Whether you are just getting started in your Midlife Journey, are in the middle, or closing in on the end send us a message! We love to hear from other Empty Nesters!
