    You get to a point when most of your life you have dedicated to your family.
    Now what?
    How to find your own? You have nothing left,and your battery's are very low.

    Think of your skills and things you like.

    Take a class, read books, etc.

    I know two women who took a photography class at the local community college (non credit) and they both loved it. One has really got into it and started a FB Page with her work and is selling things.

    You can experiment with fancy meals for you and your spouse or invite a good friend over.

    Invest in yourself.

    Hang in there.

    If you're not sure what you're interested in (I get it, believe me), check out edx.org. They have classes on almost everything you can think of, through colleges all over the world, and they're free. I've taken several different history of religion courses, several in women's studies, in teacher ed (I'm a substitute teacher), and am currently taking one on religion, conflict, and peace.

    What did you like to do before you had kids? Chances are youwillenjoy them again! :)

    Your batteries are fine. You just need to decide where to put them.
