My Children Kicked Me Out of the Nest - A Story About Anxiety and Midlife Expansion
Show Notes

Are you learning to live life in a new way? Whether by choice or circumstance, anxiety is a critical partner on the journey to create a new life. 

In this episode, I share a story I posted on my blog last year, May of 2021, and it’s also my most viewed post. I was coming up on the one-year anniversary of having picked up and left my Midwest hometown and old life behind to start a new one in a Florida beach town. 

Getting the notice from my apartment leasing office about renewing my lease unleashed a whole new level of anxiety. Re-reading this story makes me laugh, and I think you’ll be entertained. Some of you might even find yourself in it, especially if you’re being pushed to expand but you can’t see how it’s all going to play out.  

I hope you enjoy it and will share it with others. You can find it on my blog at Like it, leave a comment, share it with others, subscribe and become a fan!

I write for me AND others to find meaning in ordinary life events. You can read this story on my blog, along with a more recent story I shared called My Strange Relationship with Freedom. You can subscribe to receive notifications about new blog posts, podcasts episodes, and updates on my writing.
