34. Navigating Identity and Purpose as Our Children Grow Up

Subscribe:  Apple | Spotify

Real talk here…being a mom is such a rewarding and challenging phase of life. And as your children grow up and become more independent, you may tend experience a sense of loss or confusion about your identity and purpose #anyonefeelinme?

This can be especially true for moms of older teens, young adults, or those who have recently become empty nesters. Today we’ll discuss ways to help you find what this next season may entail and how to re-establish your mission in this next phase.

My baby is not a baby anymore

One of the biggest milestones for parents of teenagers is when their child gets their driver’s license. My youngest, and last one left at home, just got hers a couple weeks ago and let me tell you, it threw me completely for a loop!

When I mentioned this in my stories, I attached a video of her driving away on her own for the very first time. Allll the emotions!

I had so many moms messaging me about how they totally understood the struggle of that fine line between letting them spread their wings, all the while wanting to wrap them in a cocoon of protection from the rest of the world!

We’re moms, so we worry

We worry about their safety and independence. We worry about car wrecks from careless fellow drivers on the road, about their own distractions, about Sharknado becoming a reality while they’re driving on the freeway!


We’re moms…so we worry!


AND, we find ourselves feeling a piece of our own heart driving away. As if our mission on earth must surely be complete…so now what?


Well, mama, I’m here to tell you that this season can be a time of growth and exploration for both our kiddos, and ourselves!

Ideas to make your next phase amazing!

As your child becomes more independent, you may have more time to focus on your own interests and hobbies (what what?!)

I’ve compiled some ideas to help you rediscover yourself, your purpose, who you are, and perhaps your next phase of fun, impact, and adventure!

I get it, being a mama to older children or being an empty nester can be a challenging and confusing time.

BUT, it can also be a time of growth and exploration. By trying new hobbies, focusing on your health and wellbeing, and rediscovering your purpose, you can find fulfillment and joy in this new chapter of your life. It’s our time…Let’s GOOOO!
