Calling all midlife ladies! Do you think it’s time to pause and self reflect? This post is really meant for women of all ages (men, yours is coming later). I have heard it said that when women reach menopause there is a strength that magically appears. Others may complain that you’ve changed and you’re more “bitchy” but I suggest this is a good thing! This isn’t to say that we need to pause from men (although that has been the joke), it merely speaks to the idea that it is time to reach in and set our own goals rather than attempt to get our needs met through someone else. As little girls it is drilled into our minds that we need to find the charming prince that will sweep us off our feet, buy the house with the white picket fence and live happily ever after. That fantasy only sets us up for monumental disappointments later in life.
Be happy with who you are, exactly as you are. What is it that YOU can create and blend into your life? Yes, all by yourself. Take that step, gather your strength, travel your own dreams. When you follow your heart all the rest simply falls into place. Your inner strength grows and your outer beauty shines!
Pause, reflect, gather, build and fly!
