It seems like only yesterday… your home has served you and your children well, but with patience and a little luck, you’ll soon find yourself with an Empty Nest.
The big house with lots of stuff was great when the kids were growing, hosting sleep overs, and inviting their friends over for backyard barbecues. But now the kids have flown the nest. It’s your time. The kids are a phone call away, not a room away. What do you do with all that extra space?
Empty Nest? Full Opportunity.
It’s always bittersweet to watch your children grow up and start their own lives away from your protective reach. It’s a big life change for many people and can even lead to an identity crisis known as empty nest syndrome. While reflecting on that journey and appreciating all those moments is an important part of raising a family, many people also approach the empty nest phase of life with optimism and a sense of adventure. An empty nest can create space for new experiences and opportunities.
Now that the kids have gone, ask yourself these questions:
- What are your priorities?
- Where do you want to spend your time?
- Do you want to travel or take advantage of city life?
- Is a big yard or a multi-level home still right for you?
Whether you want to have more options in the town you’re in, or ready to make a move to be closer to friends and family, you’re now free to embrace a new lifestyle without worrying about the kids. Use your empty nest as a launching pad for new adventures.
