I announced I was retiring a few weeks ago through my online newsletter, somewhat transitioning than retiring. Now that I have a CEO for Women Empowering Women Now, it has allowed me to embrace my creative side more profoundly and purposefully. It has also provided me time to spend with my grandchildren and assist my daughter where I can be of service.
This short journey so far has been a bitter-sweet one. I have released my business coaching except for a few clients I talk to monthly. My days are not filled with endless to-do’s (trust me, I still have tasks), but it’s a different feeling. I feel the urgency has lifted from me, and I am more at ease with the flow of my days. But at the same time feel like I am mourning the loss of my former go-getter self.
As I step into my new journey in this next phase of my life, I am setting soulful boundaries that will protect me and allow me to bloom.
Here are some of them:
I am learning it’s okay to do nothing. Sit and admire the sunset, play shamelessly with my dog, or sleep in!
I am learning to let go of the people, places, and things that no longer serve me and to embrace and love the life I am living now.
