What a beautiful pile of lemony goodness you get to pick and choose from.
Threads of connection within each unique piece of perspective.
And that’s just it.
There is no one “right” way to live.
It’s more like a pick and choose adventure.
Consciously or unconsciously, we all make a choice of how we play the what is of our lives.
Loneliness and feeling blue signs I am grateful you have noticed. It is normal to grieve the what was and the expectations of what “should” be.
Emotions, after all, are the signposts we need to recognise life’s pulls and tugs—the first step in opening up those big beautiful eyes to the possible.
You don’t want to live in those feelings of despair any longer. You reached out for help. You are a take action kind of woman.
The days of potty training, tantrums, school PTA meetings, fundraisers, driving lessons and hands-on parenting are over. The what was memories of being Mum. They will always have a place in your heart, but it is time to wave them goodbye.
A wide-open space of what-ifs in front of you now. It may seem scary at first, but I know you can embrace the unknown. You’ve raised two capable daughters already — and as we know, parenting, especially solo parenting, is full of those unknowns!
Now it’s your playtime, baby!! Wooohooo!
Run, walk, hop, skip and dance your way to raising “you” in this new part of life.
The energy and joy are sure to follow. Your family will notice your new spark for living too.
Hubby may even look up and realise the race for bigger better more no longer needs him as a full-time participant. But that is pure icing on the cake… you being you is the biggest treat after all.
You have got this.
Hugs and high fives,
PS — Thank you for being you!
