So the kids have left home, what are you going to do? Well that’s the Million dollar question everybody kept asking and like any self-respecting lass facing the pressure of commencing the next defining chapter of her life I placed all of my energy into avoiding the issue. I spent an awful lot of time hiding at work; I increased my commute, my hours and a lot of voluntary unpaid overtime. I even stepped up what I was doing for Hubbies hobbies, volunteered to help with anything I could. Basically I made myself very busy and when that didn’t work I ran away, occasionally very far away, half way round the world away. But in those quiet moments, you know the ones, where you resort to a glass or two of wine and some trashy TV there was always still this little niggling thought, what if I am completely wasting an incredible opportunity. For the first time in my grown up life I am able to put myself first, to embark on my own personal pursuit of happiness, to do whatever I want and I’ve got absolutely no idea what that is.
So the start of this year I decided to embark on a journey of self-discovery and on this journey I am hoping to use the Wisdom of other women to guide me towards a happier, healthier, more fulfilling authentic life. Writing this blog is part of that journey and I am hoping to use it to share as much of the wisdom of other women that I can and that you will use this space to do the same too.
