You may remember that last month I talked a bit about how I was struggling to adjust to changes because my son and his fiance have moved back home. While I love having both kids and their significant others at home, it’s caused some changes to my routine, and I don’t always do well with change. Last month, I started exploring the Life Reimagined website for resources I could use to adapt. Thank you to Life Reimagined for sponsoring this conversation today.
Following Up with Life Reimagined
Life Reimagined is a website that offers coaching and a variety of other resources that can be used to make changes in your life. Life Reimagined works for personal, business, health and a variety of other types of goals. The site is really a community that helps people rediscover what truly matters and focus on what they really want to do.
I spent a lot of time exploring the site last weekend, and I found a lot of really helpful articles. I learned that part of the problem is really me seeing change as a negative thing. It’s not always. Sometimes, it’s a matter of how you see things. If this is something that you struggle with as well, you may want to check out Fill Your Heart With Cheer. If you’re working with a blended family, you may want to read about how to Welcome Your Blended Family.
One of the most helpful articles I read was New Thinking on Empty Nests and Boomerang Kids. I learned that what I’m going through doesn’t have to be a negative thing and that it’s a lot more common than I was aware of. I really loved this quote. It helped me put things in perspective.
“Don’t worry about the conventional wisdom. It’s all about being a family.
Eventually, boomerang kids will find their footing and get back out there.”
I’ve been trying to take the time to enjoy the kids while they’re here. I know that eventually, they will move out on their own, and I’ll miss these days of having everyone under one roof even though it is hectic. I’ve decided that I need to include the kids in more of what I do. So I took some time to run errands with my son and listen to some of his favorite music. Then I invited him and his fiance to help me with dinner. It’s an adjustment, but it’s easier now when I stop seeing it as forever and I try to have fun with it.
I’ve had a chance to take advantage of the coaching services that Life Reimagined offers and they can be a huge help. Sometimes, it’s really beneficial to talk to someone else who is completely impartial and get their thoughts. They have a wide variety of different coaches to choose from.
