Kiwi Birds Mid life Crisis In The Empty Nest

hildaSo 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.
