While I have embarked on this blogging and writing challenge, day three under the belt and still going, I’m feeling there may be something to this journey of rediscovering a long lost voice, finding the courage to share it, finding the value in what I’m doing, to really contribute something important at some time in the future. How can there not be when there are so many out there going through a similar process…whether our kiddos are moving away, growing up, going to college, writing their own next chapters; or people who are moving out of the traditional workforce to find their own avenues and businesses and opportunities; or women who are rediscovering themselves, their voices, their strengths, etc. I’ve been so blessed to meet so many of those new voices lately and am feeling very inspired.
That being said, it’s time to break out my business books and begin looking not only at where I am but where I want to go, what a solid plan of attack is to get there, what that will mean for my work/life balance, solid resources and sources of information, and how to implement all of that information into my own path and if blessed, share that information with the others out there. I’m telling you, I am on to something here and know it’s of value to someone other than just myself. I’m not pulling in the whole hormonal menopausal bit, simply the transition of the young family to that of a more mature family and finding a balance that is encouraging to all while creating open space to spread large wings for stop & go flights before the big journey begins.
