    How long can one be “in the middle of a Major Life Renovation” that I did not leap into but was pushed? Just over 2 years my husband was arrested for molesting my granddaughter, my niece and other young girls (he is currently in prison); just under 2 years ago I moved from my daughters house to mine right next door; 5 months since I was granted a legal separation from my husband. I am now 66 years old, in good health with no job or job skills having been a stay-at-home mom most of my adult life, living on Social Security and a small maintenance from my husband and having absolutely no idea what to do next. Go back to school – at my age? How to pay for it? Get a job? What? Where? Even though I really want to stay home all day every day I do attend church and a women’s Bible study each week, go to a support group and volunteer at the library just to keep myself from totally shriveling up, but I think there should be more, some focus or purpose to my life. I’m sorry, I’m rambling but this post struck a nerve with me. Thanks for sharing.

    • What a difficult situation. I’m sorry.

      You touched on a very important piece – purpose. I really believe that purpose is what makes life meaningful. I’m glad to hear that you are involved. Yet it sounds as though none of your activities really fuel your passion. What did you love to do as a child or young adult? How can you share that interest with others or pass it along to the next generation? When have you felt the most alive? The most in the flow?

      As to your question about how long you can be in the middle of a Major Life Renovation? It’s determined by when you build your new life, not by the calendar.

    I really like this post. You put into words what I have experienced. Number one helps explain why I ended up buying a rust red couch. I love it and I would have been overruled in my previous life. I’m loving the new life I have been given. 🙂
