There are so many milestones that come whether you are ready or not. You will turn 40; you will bury your parents; you will graduate high school; you will buy your first “fill in the blank.” There are anniversaries to celebrate, births to welcome, and transitions galore as you journey through your life. Your relationships will find their own milestones as you share your life with the people you love. Some relationships will last a lifetime and some won’t. But today I want to share with you the magic of marking your own milestone by making a dream come true. Today, I want to acknowledge and share one of my own. I hope you don’t mind my indulgence. My hope is that I inspire you to do the same.
You sit silently while you hear those dreaded words “I just don’t think this relationship is going to work.” You know the time for pleas on giving it one more try is gone. There is no need to argue. You feel the certainty and finality of the words. And when you find the strength to stand up, you walk away knowing that you will never be with this person again. The beginning of the end is here. This journey you must walk alone. And it is a painful path.
I will be presenting on The Pathway to Love this Saturday August 4th at The Naked Truth Workshop in Santa Clarita CA. This will be a great day celebrating women. Hope to see everyone there.

Many parents, who have devoted their time, energy, and identity on parenting, hit a crisis when the children are gone. Many couples, who have devoted their time, energy, and identity on parenting, will also find themselves in crisis when their last child leaves the home. This is not only common but a natural milestone that couples hit as they move through their lives. This time of year is the time that many young adults leave the nest for college or for good. It is important to address all the issues that surface during this important milestone, both on an individual as well as relational level. Here is my 4 step process for dealing with an empty nest.
