Empty Nester Who Never Read The Future
I just came back from Family Weekend at my son's college. It was like old and new times but I didn't realize until I got back home, that I didn't plan for the future.
Sure we plan finances, and house care, and vacations, and health resources, but nothing for empty nest.
Why didn't we hear about this cycle of our life where so much is suddenly lost but not found as rapidly?
The books don't really address the unspoken issues of other loses and aging and what now Alfie? They seem to list or tell stories, which are what I am doing now, but I just want to feel part of a group where it is little by little that I have the energy to start something new or not.
I think I am a little clouded by getting older and not liking those numbers on the cake. I am healthy and have friends and work. I just want something and can't name it now.
I am still sad that those days of being mom are different and at the same time happy that he is happy and that I know I will find my new happy or new normal as they say.
I really want to have people to talk with who are in this change or have been in it but don't push me to volunteer or get over it. I am not over whatever the IT is.
I do believe I will have a new day to day without being the mom and be happy in it. I have been through losses with my parents and sort of miss them today. That is another story but today. I just wanted to write and see if other people relate to my words.
I thank you for listening to my today story and thank you for offering a place to put it. I feel normal on your website.
