When children leave home, they sometimes leave an empty space behind in the lives of their parents. As painful and disorienting as this can be, it also presents an opportunity for you to write a new chapter in your life, and do things you were unable to while your children were growing up. This can be a chance for you to focus on parts of yourself that have been left unacknowledged for many years. A shift in identify and perspective often occurs at this point, opening up the possibility for a sense of renewal.


As you start to think about what to include in your life, you can think about what you love now, what you loved when you were younger, or even what you think you might love doing but have never tried. If you try some different possibilities, it might help you to gain clarity on how you want to move forward with your life.  

If you are in a relationship, this might be a really good time to focus some energy on rekindling the romance. If you don't have a romantic relationship and you would like one, this could be an opportunity to put some time and energy into that part of your life.
