Starting again

My daughter is a senior in college and my son is a senior in high school. What do I do? I guess I start over again. For 21 years I have been a mom. I stopped working to take care of my kids. Now here I am. Kids grown and me trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

So many women are going through this transition. We have been so involved in our children’s life that we forget who we are. So we start again. But how do we go about doing this? Do we go back to school and take a few classes to see what interest us? Do we try and go back to a workplace that has changed in so many ways since we have worked? What do we do?  I have gotten certified as a yoga instructor a few years ago and tried to start my own yoga business. I found that that was not for me. I still  practice yoga but I am better as a student than a teacher. I have tried a few other things that have not been for me but the point is I TRIED.

So keep trying. Right now I am trying to figure out how to write a blog. This is my first one!!!  I keep trying new things and one day something will stick. I don’t know if this is for me but I like helping people and want my kids to be proud of me. Don’t quit, keep going and one day it will happen. So right now, we keep starting again.

Give me feedback on what you would like to talk about. I have the time!! I am just a mom trying to find her pipe dream!!!

  1. Keep at it. Find your focus, find your audience. Read other blogs and comment, we will come to you. Being a disability advocate is going to find you a large audience. Use a lot of tags (at least 10) so you are very searchable. There are a lot of us here who are just waiting for disability (I’m at 2 years so far). If you commit to your cause – whatever it ends up being – you’ll do great!!!
