Being a parent is not a walk in the park. You take on a lot of roles and try to be the best multi-tasker a home could ever have. You get to be a teacher, chef, driver, ultimate babysitter, doctor, entertainer (wink), and a bunch of others. You get tired sometimes but it is the best kind of sigh at the end of the day. You still end up having that smile because your little rays of sunshine give you the power to glow.
As a mom, you need to juggle a lot of personalities and expertise to get the right kind of tickle for each of your kids. You seem to have like 10 hands. And boy you did an amazing job being the mother. The noise and busyness of the house amplifies the love within a home. It radiates energy and bounces onto the corners of your home. Then came the day wherein the noise seems to fade and silence echoes through your soul. The kids leave and the house feels empty. As we see the color blue through this emptiness, we can’t help but see gold too. It is a sense of accomplishment to free your kid and let them pursue their own dreams and aspirations in life. You’re hell of a Rockstar! Sip a glass of wine. You deserve that!
But hey, the real question here is WHAT NOW? There are a lot of ways to deal with this stage in life and I know the empty space could drag you to be sappy but please don’t let yourself be drowned. Dip your toes then skedaddle to the endless possibilities you can now dive in.

3. Reimagine YOU: make a list of all the things you used to love doing and the things you have always wanted to do
4. DARE it Forward: This is the leaving your comfort zone part. Take small daring action steps toward one of the items on your list from #3
5. Find a Community: Join a community, Like The Moms Who Dare, to find new friendships and connections as well as a group of like-minded moms all willing to step out and dare along with you.
