Following Up with Life Reimagined and Adjusting

Last Updated on September 23, 2020 by Ellen Christian

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.

How to Adjust to Lifestyle Changes More Easily

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.

  1. This is a really great post. I konw that my oldest is a teen and while I think giving her some space to be free and figure out who she is is important, she feels like I have sort of left her on her own and she doesn't matter. That woke me up and made me realize to balance time better because she may be a teen but in four years she is an adult and she still wants her Mama to show her some time and listen to her likes/desires/needs!
  2. I know of a couple of adults that had a challenging time when kids left then came back. It can be very helpful trying to look at things in a different way and I bet in the end you'll enjoy having spent the extra time with the kids.
  3. It's so important to be able to roll with whatever changes life gives you. Life is a river, not a pond, and if you can't roll with it, you might just get swept up. Great post!
  4. I'm glad that there are so many blogs out there to help with almost any situation. I know the frustration of dealing with unexpected changes (like kids moving back in), so it's really nice to have somebody who feels your frustration and more importantly, creates Life Reimagined to help!
  5. Life Reimagined sounds so great. We all need something to help us get through trying things and see things in a new light. I love it!
