This week I turned 51 years young, and feel LIBERATED.
The season of birthing children for me is complete, but a life force continues to express itself through my ideas, dreams and inspiration.
In order to have that freedom, I am liberating myself from expectations and limitations.
Liberation is not easy
I hope to inspire liberation! But trust me, I am in the arena fighting hard with you.
I never want to give the wrong impression by pretending I don’t have challenges.
I struggle with the opinions of others. I’m not at my ideal weight, or as fit as I want to be.
But, I’m evolving into someone I finally like and respect, and recognize room for more growth.
It only took me 51 years to have my own back. I’ve learned to forgive my inadequacies and appreciate resiliency.
Here’s what I’ve learned after a week journaling about liberation.
1. The first step to becoming liberated in midlife is to truly get to know yourself and decide how you want to show up in this messy world. Forgive yourself, even when others can’t. Learn what makes you come alive.
2. The second step is to come to terms with the expectations of others, understanding how your thoughts effect the relationship. Often times we don’t realize the impact of our own expectations on others. If you struggle with this step, go back to step one.
Liberation comes when you like yourself.
I regularly hear from midlife clients, “what’s the point?”
God forbid you feel stuck by the limitations of age and wonder if getting older means you had your chance. What can you do to become liberated TOWARDS a future with abundant creativity and independent thought?
Journal to get to know yourself. Check out my Four Journal Prompts article for more ways to explore who you want to become.
What do you like to do for fun? This is a question I started asking myself. Start by making a “fun” list and schedule it into your week. Invite a friend to lunch. Download the Babble app to learn a new language. Join a yoga studio. You do you.
Are you curious why midlife women need a life coach?
My clients are restoring relationships, getting new jobs, embracing technology for their businesses, planning dream trips, finding their dream man, and attaining their ideal weight.
Most importantly, they are working towards becoming the women they truly like with an exciting future.
In this season, you deserve to be liberated towards a life that you create. You are worth the hard work. If you hang around with me long enough, I will convince you that your best years are ahead.
If this is you, schedule a free session to chat about your liberation towards the life you long for.
Here’s to all you ageless goddesses!
