The New Midlife
The New Midlife
The need for change as we get older-an emotional pressure for one phase of our lives to transition into another - is a human phenomenon, neither male nor female. I happen to be female and so my experience and connection tends to be with other woman.
What we have called "middle age" can be viewed as a magical turning point toward life as we've never known it.
When we were younger, we had energy but we were clueless about what to do with it. Today, we have less energy, perhaps, but we have far more understanding of what each breath of life is for. And now at last, we have a destiny to fulfill - not a destiny of life that's over, but rather a destiny of a life that is finally truly lived.
Midlife is not a crisis; it's a time of rebirth. It's not a time to accept your death; it's a time to accept your life - and to finally, truly live it, as you and you alone know deep in your heart it was meant to be lived. -Marianne Williamson
This is a photo of some friends and I at a fundraiser around Valentine's day 2015. we are celebrating our love of each other and our love of ourselves. You are looking at four women from 52-62 years of age. One is an outstanding & creative cook, one runs a successful doctor's office with her husband, one is training for the Ironman and I am in the middle grateful to have changed my life so I may be involved in the everyday lives of my six grandchildren.
Are you or someone you know feeling restless? Sometimes, life is pushing us to make a change and our natural inclination is to resist it. I can help you take the blinders off - and suddenly you can see options for new directions that you never saw before. I did it and so can you!
Peace and Blessings,
