What if life is NOT a problem to be solved, but is actually a mystery to be lived?
I have talked to so many midlife women who feel there is a big question mark over their future.
Society, community and family traditions influence women in their journey. Women tend to neglect themselves in the service of family and career. After decades of doing for others, wether you stayed home or had a career, the end of that defining chapter is near.
There is no owner’s manual for this next season. This is what I call the midlife conundrum. The big question mark of “what do you do now?”
I think a better feeling question is, “who do you want to BE now?”
This new season is an opportunity for you to discover your truest self, to embrace the mystery.
Self-Aware is the first step in Self-Care
Getting to know yourself is the most transformative work you can do and will solve the midlife conundrum.
I am a personal growth junkie. Given the choice, I will read a book that dives deep into the human psyche over a juicy romance novel.
It is no wonder why I chose to become a certified life coach. If you are willing to do the work, I truly believe your best years are ahead.
What is your unique framework?
In my pursuit of personal growth, I’ve taken several personality tests. I am a RED/BLUE or an A/B depending on the chart. I scored an 8/7 on the Enneagram test.
So, I’m a challenger that shows enthusiasm, which is frustrating because I don’t particularly like being naturally driven with a direct personality. I enjoy parties, but hate being the center of attention, partly because I’m afraid of what might come out of my mouth with no filter.
Personality tests are interesting, but I never really knew how to apply the results to life.
It read my mail
I finally found a profile that gave me clear applications to my life and unpacked the mystery.
My friend and colleague, Lisa Scoffield recently introduced me to Human Design. It is a new service she is offering in her coaching practice. Human Design is a science that gives insight into your personality traits, your health, your personal psychology, your talents, your wisdom, and your vulnerabilities. When Lisa offered to run my chart, I responded with an instant YES!
Again, I geek out over these kind of things, but I never expected it to read my mail.
I am a Pure Generator. My strengths are energetic, master of their work, sustainable energy and self-aware. My weaknesses are often frustrated, quits too soon, can’t make it happen and can feel stuck.
Lisa explained my profile with an in-depth thirty page report. As I read through it I started to have a-ha moments, and at times felt sad. I felt sad because I never fully understood the patterns in my life until I read this. I spent nearly 50 years believing I was broken and there is something seriously wrong with me.
Yes, I have a tendency of challenging everything from the school system, the medical system, society’s conditioning, etc. Weirdly enough, I have a sense of duty too. I am a work horse who will work until exhaustion. I am direct to a fault and a social butterfly, until I suddenly feel that I’ve had enough.
The most impactful revelation in the report is understanding how I am designed to make decisions. I’ve been conditioned to think I need to hustle and make things happen. My best approach for making decisions is to pause, listen to my gut and wait for a strong YES or a strong NO. My biggest fear is that I will wait and it will never come.
I now understand how I’m wired and how I can best show up in the world with my gifts. How I can be aware of my weakness, but shine through my strengths.
If you are curious about your Human Design Chart, I encourage you to reach out to Lisa.
