Empty Nest Syndrome is a real thing.

When Samson graduated last spring, I was hit square in the face with the realization that of my six kiddos, only one was still a minor. And with him on track to graduate from high school a year earlier, my time as a momma with kids at home was too swiftly coming to a close.

It was that realization that ushered in my midlife crisis and was the impetus for Midlife Credo. I knew I needed to proactively move to a positive place or I'd crumple into a puddle and never recover.

As the baby in my family, did I even notice how my parents were impacted when I flew the coop in a glorious shout of freedom? It didn't even occur to me to think about it. What was the big deal?

Well, now I know.

Have any tips to share on how to make the second half the better half? I'm all ears!
