Hello world!

Yay!!! I have finally did it “started a blog” instead of constantly thinking about it. I have read various blogs but never done my own. It is great to be here.

As a wife and a mother of 2 college students I am moving on to the next phase of motherhood. I will no longer have to hoover over them the same as when they were younger. I can now take a step back and allow them to grow into the wonderful people that they are inspired to be. Instead of telling them what “to do”, I can now suggest “how to” when it comes to addressing challenges and resolving conflict in their lives. I have now  officially move to “counselor” where they are concerned.

This “next phase mom” looks forward to the new challenges ahead of what life will now bring.  Now that I am at retirement status at my place of employment I am living life on my terms. Yeah, I will always be here for them because I am and will always be a mom it is just that my mom duties have been relaxed.

What do I want to do? Well, that is a good question. I am still pondering that answer. But for now I will be here to express my many thoughts of inspiration on life and motherhood “the next phase”.

I hope you will join me occasionally and even leave a comment if you so feel inclined. I look forward to sharing….

About nextphasemom

I am a married mother of 2 college age children. Now that my children are grown attending college and working I find myself lost and wondering what to do with myself. In my loneliness I thought I would do what I love and that is write. Now that I am at retirement status I look forward to creating the next phase of my life. To start I am expressing myself through writing. It has always been relaxing for me so I thought I would share some of my thoughts. I am also a self-help fanatic and I try to live an inspired life daily. On occasion I am able to encourage and inspire those around me in a no nonsense way. For those that know me know that when you ask me for my opinion that you will get "the truth"; they know that if you don't want "the truth" don't ask me. No....I am not rude or abusive. I just point out ideas or points of interest that they have not considered or don't want to accept. A lot of my friends call me "the counselor". No..I am not a certified professional counselor but I love psychology. My degree background is business and I am employed in Customer Service. So talking to people on a regular basis is what I do to assist them in finding solutions. Well that is enough about me for now....to be continued because I am ever changing. Take your time to look around and please leave a comment so I will know that you stopped by...until then.
