Growing Pains

by Kimberly Hickok

I’ve long since come to terms with the statement “the only thing you can count on is change”. I welcome change. I’ve always embraced it and love trying new things.

Lately, though, I’ve been feeling a bit out of sorts. I think it’s because so many things are changing, or have changed. all at the same time.  Oh, and there’s that whole issue of my own mortality. Honestly, is there enough time left for me to accomplish all the things I want to? Will my health continue to be good?

Yeah, that was deep.

So I’m calling this period of change in my life ‘growing pains’. And I’m going to embrace the changes that are happening.

Our family dynamic has changed now that the youngest, Justin, has graduated from college. I’m now a middle-aged woman (51 – yikes!). I’m building a few new businesses – a marketing consultancy and a lifestyle website. And I’m already feeling like I don’t give this blog enough love 🙁

I know that these ‘growing pains’ are just a transition to whatever the next chapter in my life will be. Until now many of the decisions I’ve made had, at their core, the well-being of my family but now I can focus on ME. Scary and exhilarating at the same time!

Time to exhale. Deeply and begin focusing on filling the next chapter of my life.

Stay tuned.
