Magical Journey: An Apprenticeship in Contentment by Katrina Kenison
The author suddenly found herself with an empty nest after her youngest son moved out to finish high school in another state. She finds herself at a crossroads, wondering about who she is in this stage of her life. She reflects on the passage of time and the sudden loss of the everyday tasks that make up motherhood. She also begins to reconnect with herself, who she is, and what she wants.
I read this book very slowly because I didn't want it to end. It's thoughtful and carries a message that we don't hear very often at all about just being ourselves, being true to ourselves, and not chasing after what everyone else is chasing after just because.
Recommended if you want to be in a thoughtful place about where you are in life and what you want.
