🎙️ Managing that Empty Nest Feeling (Issue #89)

How to transition to this next phase of life

Note: My mic picked up some interference and generated static at a few points in my recording. Sorry about that!

In this episode, my wife Nicole joins me again as co-host.

We wanted to talk about our new empty nest life and how we are managing it. Our youngest child recently graduated from college. So, now we’re bracing for the next phase of his moving farther away to start his new life!

We discuss:

  • The feelings you experience during graduation milestones.

  • How life is an endless series of small losses, but how you can seek new gains.

  • What that empty nest syndrome is like for each of us.

  • Some risks and myths about the empty nest.

  • What comes after this phase of raising children to adulthood.

  • How we stay connected to our children.

  • What parenting looks like when your children become adults.

  • How we are transitioning to this next phase of our lives.
