Have you ever thought about whose life you are living? This is what I mean…
Your kids are grown and you have spent all those years raising them, taking care of them, accumulating stuff and making a home. You wanted to give them all the things you had or maybe what you “didn’t have”. You did your best, you thought of your family first and let yourself sit on the back burner. That is just what women do – which is totally fine.
Now you are not “needed” like you once were. Your kids are basically on their own. You think back on the whirlwind of the last years and realize how fast they went. You did what you thought was “right”, what was “expected” and even what your mom, father, family, friends felt was the “right thing to do.” That is just what we “do” at that age – e.g. education, job, steady boyfriend, engagement, marriage, house & cars, furniture, making a home and raising kids.
Whew! You did it all!…………Now what?
What I mean by that is are you in a place in your life where your kids are older, you are living the life with a house, 2 cars, nice furniture, 3 TV’s, 3 (or even more) computers in your household, out-grown toys and things everywhere, wedding gifts (that you may or may not have used) stuffed in cupboards, basement full of stuff you avoid looking at, a garage that you can no longer fit your cars in?
You look at it all and feel overwhelmed and know something needs to be done but the amount of work it will take seems like just too much.
Maybe your spouse and your kids do not notice it and it sure doesn’t bother them but somedays you just want to haul it all in the driveway and have a huge truck come and take it ALL away.
Excess of stuff, stuff that you thought you wanted, thought you needed, just had to have. Is it all beginning to feel like “too much?”
Are you starting to want something different?
Do you feel like you don’t “fit in” to the life you are living?
Do you realize that you lived a life that was determined by how you were raised, what society sees as “the right thing to do” and now you are unsure what you really want, what to do now, where to go from here and how to ease the feeling of discontent?
You have options, you can start to make changes. This is normal, you are not alone, it is all part of the journey we call life.

CRISP CABBAGE APPLE SALAD
A bit about CABBAGE….
Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable. They are well known in cancer prevention. Some of the nutrients in cabbage are: Vit K, Vit C, B6, manganese, potassium, B1, folate, copper, B2, magnesium, calcium, selenium and iron.
Savoy cabbage has sinigrin – which has received special attention in cancer prevention research.
Red (or purple) cabbage contains significantly more protective phytonutrients than the green varieties. It is also helps to decrease inflammation in the body.
- 1 C chopped cabbage (napa, green or savoy)
- 1 C purple cabbage
- 2 apples diced
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 C sunflower seeds
- 3 Tbsp raisins or currents
Add the chopped apple to a bowl and add lemon juice. Stir to mix. This will help the apples from turning brown. Then add the cabbage and stir. Make dressing (recipe below). Add some to the salad, stir well to mix. Add the amount you want and then toss in the sunflower seeds and raisins. Stir to mix.
- 1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp tahini
