Now that we are in empty nest mode, we are focusing on our own needs, physically, educationally, regarding our home, planning for retirement, etc. Over the last 26 years I seldom took the time to truly focus on my own health needs. I found myself almost 100 lbs overweight, emotionally exhausted, and no sense of direction.
Now I'm taking the time to fix the meals I need, and to spend a good chunk of time exercising to get me healthy. I am feeling better emotionally, and I'm starting to try and find my sense of direction. I'm not trying to get younger; that ship has sailed; but I am finally truly in the driver's seat regarding the rest of my life, and I want it to be grand.
Surely I'm not alone?
