Best Way to Overcome End of Summer “Blahs”

Aug 31, 2021

I’ve been feeling a whole slew of emotions as summer winds down. Gratitude, appreciation, joy, sadness, grief, worry.
I remember a therapist told me years ago that mental health is being able to be with opposing emotions at the same time.
So first and foremost, I’m grateful that I’m mentally healthy (despite my ongoing journey of healing from anxiety).
I also feel deep, deep gratitude for a summer full of adventure, new experiences, seeing family we haven’t seen in two years, spending so much time with my own family of five.
At the same time, I feel both joy and grief as my oldest starts university in Boston. At least, she will be in the same time zone this year! I’m so proud of the young woman that she is – so smart, loving, emotionally intelligent, determined and focused – and am thrilled that she has the wings to fly.
I’m also grieving her absence, already before I even drop her off. It has been such a gift to spend three months with her this summer. Who knows if and when we will ever have that opportunity again?
I know that I’m not alone… I’ve been teaching my Passion & Purpose Life Course for nearly two decades and every single time, I get questions like:
It’s hard to let them go.
To not think about how my younger daughters, at 16 and 11, are also a school year closer to leaving the nest.
Yesterday, I let myself feel all those feelings and then got busy with my day – filled with passion projects and things that have meaning for me. It made all the difference in the world.

Living with passion and purpose gave me energy and joy and the resilience to love and appreciate my life, even as I accept inevitable change.

I made this video for you just in case you too are feeling grief or sadness or “blah” as summer winds down. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed at what’s suddenly on your plate or just not sure where to start to live this new season with more joy and passion.

Check out the video and let me know what you think. Enjoy!

P.S. Are you ready to live an extraordinary life?
Do you want to finally live your passions and purpose?
To uncover your gifts & talents and make a difference?
To experience vibrancy and zest for living?
To be an ageless woman?

An opportunity to work with me directly, 1-on-1.

I’ve opened up 5 spots for an individual 3-month coaching program to help amazing women, just like you, create the lives of their dreams.

“I feel like I’ve gotten a lifetime’s worth of value in three months! I’m finally doing what I was born to do!

I’m excited for my future as I now have a plan for my purpose. I also learned to read my internal compass. Before, I looked to others to point me in the right direction. Now, I look to me. As a result, I see my calling and purpose as a primacy and I know who I am. When problems arise, I now look inside for the answers and am reorienting quicker. I have increased resilience and I make decisions faster and more effectively. Thank you, Natalie!”
