“And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” – C.S. Lewis
Are you comfortably living inside your shell? Perhaps now that you are out of a painful relationship, you’ve created a nice new place for yourself. That place just for U for once. And that is really a wonderful thing. But I found that even a year after being left and “moving on”, I really had not been “moving” at all. I was safely staying in the place I found the most comfort – in my apartment – ALONE. This seemed like the gr8-est thing in the world to me at the time. I FINALLY had the living space I’d dreamed of. All of my pretty knick-knacks were out. The music I liked was playing on the stereo. (Goodbye Blue-Collar 70’s era “Hard Rock”, Hello John Legend!) This place was awesome! I wanted to stay here forever!
But you know that is not really living a life. There is a world out there that we all need to step back out into. If you are still comfortable in your nest, then stay there. But if you realize you are over-staying your own welcome, then put a cute pair of shoes on your feet and flutter out into the world. I know it’s scary. And weird stuff can go on around you. But this is your one and only life. And it’s time to live it! Because consider this – as much as you now need to start your life, guess what? The World Needs You!
Us ladies of a “certain age” have SO much to contribute to this world. In small ways, in large ways, in whatever way you see fit. So, get out of your nest (which is really your head) spread your wings and let them carry you to a place in this world that you need to be as well as the place that NEEDS YOU! Hatch!!!!!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
