121: A Motherhood Memory Book and The Rest of 2020
Nov 20 2020 8 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, When this episode goes live, I'll be in my car, traveling to see my daughter's senior art show, and then will bring her home for winter break a couple of days later. Honestly, when she headed off to campus, I did not have high expectations that her school would continue on-campus through Thanksgiving. It is nice to have a pleasant surprise in 2020 - one that requires no major thought work. In this episode, I mention the idea of a motherhood memory book and share my podcast plans for the remainder of 2020. Be sure to subscribe to my podcast in your favorite podcast player, if you haven't already, as that is the best way to be notified of new episodes. I have a feeling I'll be most active on TikTok and then Instagram over the holidays, so I also invite you to follow me there. Enjoy time with your family this holiday season, my empty nest friend, and remember that you are amazing! ๐Ÿ—จ "... what if we were to create a Motherhood Memory Book that allows us to capture large lessons learned, or celebrate accomplishments that arenโ€™t just our childโ€™s sporting event, scholarship honor, first steps?

119: Let's Talk About Divorce in the Empty Nest Does the Empty Nest Cause Divorce?
Nov 06 2020 15 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, This topic seems to be either a big part of your life or is a taboo topic in what I've witnessed. I haven't run into many humans in my age range that comfortably discuss divorce - except for a fab podcaster I mention in this episode. Even when a divorce doesn't personally impact someone, the discomfort is almost always visible when divorce is mentioned in a conversation. Somehow, this is surprising in 2020, despite the level of surprises in 2020. Divorce is a word. We choose how much power we allow the WORD to have in our life. If you are in the process of a divorce, outside of the financial and legal implications (I can't speak to those), you do have the opportunity to move forward in a way that will serve you well - or not. ๐Ÿ—จ "Life is a beautiful mess. Make it YOUR beautiful mess and create a masterpiece going forward. You get to decide who youโ€™ll be. Donโ€™t think for a moment that you are defined by divorce. You are more than divorced. You are amazing you, who happened to have experienced divorce." This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

118: The Benefit of Taking Time Off - Listener Requested โš 
Oct 30 2020 8 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Breaks benefit us. We know this. Why, then, is it incredibly difficult for us to take the time for ourselves? As mothers, we tend to be experts at not taking breaks. So much so that when we do have downtime, we may not be sure what to do with ourselves. Hmm, a micro-level of the whole empty nest experience, isn't it? It might be thirty minutes sitting in your car in your driveway or a parking lot with your favorite music, or it might be more than that. Find something that will rejuvenate you in some way, and do it. Head to your CEO of Your Life's Toolbox for inspiration. You are amazing. Now take some time for yourself to uncover a bit more amazing-ness than you are allowing yourself to see right now.๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿ—จ "We all know it makes sense to take the break, to rejuvenate, to get the sleep you need, to hydrate yourself, to eat well, but sometimes our protector thinks they know better."

116: Laughing At Yourself - Are you a tissue box or a tissue ๐Ÿ˜‚
Oct 16 2020 15 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, In this episode, I spill the beans on an embarrassing moment in my middle school years. I had not planned to dive into that story, but ideas and concepts sometimes appear, and I go with the flow. Goodness gracious, there is so much power in laughing at yourself. This episode topic originated from an Instagram Reel where I poked fun at "life coaches" (mostly myself) and our my abundant use of analogies. And when I say extreme use - a few of you thought I was serious with my Reel - which made me laugh at myself more. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank you for that. Consider for a moment what life would be like if you laughed at yourself a bit more: not in a cruel way but a, "Well, I see the silliness in that, and I don't take myself too seriously," kind of way. In the end, it may alleviate the pain a bit when another human laughs because you've already released the power the situation could have held on your life. Cheers and Giggles! ๐Ÿ—จ "What if your protector could slide on a pair of sunglasses that had a funny filter. Would anything change for you?"

113: When Something Unexpected Comes Along Pots on the Stove ๐Ÿณ
Sep 25 2020 10 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Some years the unexpected is more the norm than the norm (whatever that means). The unexpected has a way of leveling us up, stretching us, and making us stronger. When we focus on a specific project or route for our lives, the unexpected may cause gut reactions such as, "Why have I been working on this project the whole time?" or "My work must have moved out of my zone of genius." Or the dreaded: "Wow, I've been on the wrong path this whole time!" Sure, that could be the case, but when we zoom out to the bigger picture of our life, it might only be time to move that project to the warming oven for a bit until other things have matured. You'll never go wrong if you consider both before making a big decision. ๐Ÿ—จ "Try different things, and know that some โ€œrecipes in the pots' are going to cook up a lot quicker than you were expecting."

Sep 18 2020 11 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Sometimes challenges - and opportunities - pop up in our life. What do you make them mean? I explore this in today's episode. ๐Ÿ—จ "Life isnโ€™t a one way, smooth sailing go-kart course, or street. It has detours. It has bumps. It has U-turns sometimes.

Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Intuition. What are your thoughts about it? I share mine in this episode. ๐Ÿ—จ "My theory is that much of a humanโ€™s unsettledness, or restlessness, has more to do with not following their own intuition/guidance/GPS, than to do with the outside world.

105: Aaaand My Child's School Went Online Again ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Jul 31 2020 16 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, I had another topic scheduled for today, but with my clients, friends, and colleagues struggling with figuring out their fall season this year due to school changes, I sat down in front of the mic to share some unscripted thoughts with you. Forgive the rabbit trails. ๐Ÿฐ My friend, please know that while the next few months look like a hot mess, you can handle it. Here are some thoughts to try on. Adjust as needed. ๐Ÿ’š "This isn't what we planned at all, but we will figure out how to make it work, and I'll be patient with myself as I navigate the journey forward." "This isn't what we planned. I'm not sure what the future looks like, but I can figure out my next best step at this moment - even if it is to stare at the wall to calm my brain." Let's be real. Sometimes this is needed. "Online again: Well, I know what didn't work last time around. How can I change those areas?" "Online again: I can adapt in ways that I couldn't imagine a year ago. This won't look the way I had planned, and that's okay." ๐Ÿ—จ "Be there for your children. All of the thoughts and anxiety that you have (about our current situation) they feel that - and they have their own. So I encourage you to get to know them no matter their age - what's going on in their mind?" This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

98: How to Deal With Difficult People
Jun 12 2020 23 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, I recorded this episode a few weeks ago. Created for the moments in your life where other humans rub you the wrong way: when you know you have to work around them (or with them), and something about them pushes your buttons. To be clear, I would not use this process for racist, abusive, or anti-humanity situations. But for those button-pushers that you need to navigate around in your life, seeking peace within yourself isn't meant to help them, it is to help you. Imagine finding different ways to navigate your interactions going forward. We don't learn these things to quickly tell our friends and family how to do things better so they'll be a better person. Wouldn't it be nice if it were that easy? No, WE change how we handle things, and then others may want to know more - or they won't - either way, you have more peace in your life. Life gets interesting when peace is within you. ๐Ÿ—จ "Another human in your life is always outside of your fence. You canโ€™t control them. You canโ€™t control their thoughts or actions. What you CAN control is your thoughts about them.โ€ This episode's full transcript is available on my website.

88: The Conscious Effective Olympian Toolbox
Apr 17 2020 16 mins  
Hello, my ah-mazing empty nest friend, Imagine that you ask someone to work on a broken item in your home. They walk up to your home โ€“ no vehicle of any sort โ€“ and have only the clothes on their body with them. You assume that theyโ€™ll come back later with resources to help them finish the job, but upon completing your explanation, they say, โ€œGreat! It will cost this much, and I can start now.โ€ You are a bit curious about how this will play out, so you hire them. They interrupt you constantly, although quite politely, โ€œBy any chance do you have a phillips head screwdriver?โ€ and such. Some items you have, and some you donโ€™t. The โ€œexpertโ€ hunts through your drawers (no, they didnโ€™t ask) to find a dull kitchen knife to use. You donโ€™t allow this to last long. You can only take 30-minutes of it. Although, it felt like three hours ๐Ÿ˜ฃ โ€“ before you send them on their way. Who wouldnโ€™t bring the tools they need? My friend, so many of us do this every single day in our lives. I introduce you to the idea of your lifeโ€™s toolbox in this episode. ๐Ÿ—จ "These tools that Self-help Sally uses are more like band-aids for her than cures. So, that toolbox that I want you to consider is in your life, that Iโ€™m asking you to picture this week as you go forward, I want you to ask yourself if you have one at all?

64: Becoming the CEO of Your Life Part 1 of 5 Meet Your Protector
Feb 07 2020 10 mins  
I am thrilled to share this series with you! This CEO of Your Life topic has been over a year and a half in the making for me. I had it before I found my empty nest niche but it took me stepping out to create this podcast and my work with clients to allow this to brew into what it is today - talk about a simmer I will be sharing this concept with you, in small bites, over the next few months. I expect a few things about this will change over time, as I'm finding that as I prepare the scripts, verbalize concepts, and share these concepts with clients, I develop nuances, memory tactics, and more. So much fun! In all honesty, it is a bit unsettling to put it out there. At the same time, had I not started the podcast, I wouldn't be here today, so this leads me to share more with you now than feels comfortable, knowing that for each level of imperfection and discomfort put out in the world, the more clarity I have in my purpose. Thank you for joining me on this journey. In this episode, I introduce you to the idea of your protector. ๐Ÿ—จ๏ธ Protector is like the security guard for your house. Protector arrived in my imagery as I read through "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle and began to form as I thought through how I envisioned my Ego. So, hopefully, it will help you to understand the Ego better (although Iโ€™m not sure it is precisely the way Eckhart would see it) it resonates with me and has been resonating with my clients with whom I have shared.

37: Laughing Through the Empty Nest Transition with Jenn Musselman
Aug 23 2019 24 mins  
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.

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!

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend! Life can be filled with lousiness sometimes.
