Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   My guest, today, Jenn Musselman, is so much fun. She's a closet coach, a certified professional life coach with a niche in closet coaching (more about that in the episode), and also manages one of my favorite places to hang out - and get my hair done - Reveal Salon, located in Chester Springs, PA. One visit there and you'll know why I think of it so fondly.   Jenn chose to be open and honest with us in sharing some of the thoughts she's had as her youngest heads off to college. She surprised herself with a couple of them and one she even had herself questioning, "where did this thought come from?" Now, if you have listened to a few of my episodes or more, you know I view observing and questioning your thoughts as healthy.   A special thanks to Jenn for joining me and for opening up to us in this way. May you find some comfort in what she shares. Take a moment to follow her on Instagram or Facebook while you are here. Links are below!

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   I am thrilled to bring this episode to you.   I enjoy scrolling through Instagram and making new connections on that platform. One account that always makes me smile is Midlife Highway, which is run by the ever so funny, Jo Davies.    Jo has supremely fresh and funny posts and is highly engaged on the platform. She shared a few photos and Insta stories about her walk on the Camino de Santiago this year. The stories piqued my interest, and a few thoughts arrived in my head: I would like to know more about this walk, and I would like to know more about Jo. I bet some of her other followers would like to know more, too. I'm going to invite her to be a guest on my podcast.   I did.   And she said, "Yes!"   Not only that, she took the interview call while she was on holiday/vacation, and stayed up late! She's got the amazing thing figured out!    I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed speaking with her.

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   Life can be filled with lousiness sometimes. Right when you begin to feel like you are getting somewhere, suddenly something happens that has you feeling like you are back at square one. This is beautiful: it is real; it is life. Nowhere are we guaranteed smooth sailing or perfection, did you get that guarantee? Because I didn't. But we get to live it - ALL of it. I encourage you to live through it, not run from it - the good, the bad, and the ugly - all of it because, you are ALIVE. It all comes down to who you want to be in each moment. I know you can be amazing, but you have to choose to live in it fully to level up in your life. In this episode, I share how I feel life is like Donkey Kong.   Take a listen, or read the full transcript on my website!   Don't forget to subscribe, rate and review this podcast!   This and every episode is brought to you by my Free Program: The Empty Nest: A Guide to Uncovering My Future   What You Will Learn in this Episode:  How life is like Donkey Kong To notice that when you are sent back to the beginning of a level in your life, that how you show up is everything The power in leveling up To remove the drama as you play the game   Episode Questions for You To Consider Do you feel like you are continually back where you started Have you noticed (or do you now notice) the leveling up in your life?

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   This episode topic comes from a Green Popsicle Stick Group Facebook member. Once again, when I sat down to organize and script this out, I had no idea that I had so many thoughts on the subject. Too funny.   Katie asked, "What skills are you glad you taught your daughter before she went off to college? And, is there anything you wished you'd spent more time on with her?"   These are fantastic questions from Katie, whose daughter is already ahead of the game, as you will hear in this episode.  Take a listen, or read the full transcript on my website!   Don't forget to subscribe, rate and review this podcast!   This and every episode is brought to you by my Free Program: The Empty Nest: A Guide to Uncovering My Future   What You Will Learn in this Episode:  Christine's thoughts on useful life skills needed for college Laundry: remember the bedding!

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   This episode topic is from a fellow listener who asked about finding friends in the later years of life. When I sat down to organize and script this out, I had no idea that I had so many thoughts on the subject. But then, I do have a lot of opinions on many topics, don't I? Ha!   Anyway, remember that some friendships serve seasons of our life, and others are in for the long haul.

When we are unable to be patient with ourselves through the transition, things can get a little off course and "boil over."    In this episode, I talk about the importance of a simmer in a beef stew and what that has to do with your life.    Take a listen, or read the full transcript on my website!   Don't forget to subscribe, rate and review this podcast!   This and every episode is brought to you by my Free Program: The Empty Nest: A Guide to Uncovering My Future   What You Will Learn in this Episode:  The importance of "sitting in the simmer" in your life Why beef stew is a good analogy for transitions in our life Future you is your navigation system not the predictor of your future   Episode Questions for You To Consider Have you found future you yet?
