Do you find yourself sitting in a quiet space wondering why your life has turned out the way it has? Reflecting can be a scary emotional process. Seeing yourself in a place you didn’t think you would ever be may seem like a life sentence. It doesn’t have to be. Some women find themselves thinking about this very same subject when the kids start to move out and they are either left alone or in a relationship they feel is just not quite right for them.
Call it mid life crisis or a mid life quest, but it’s a journey many women face in their 40’s and 50’s. Women approach mid life differently than men. We don’t see it as the end of our youth, but as a way to do it differently, our way this time. We take inventory of our past and start to wonder how can we apply our experience, knowledge and drive to the future chapters of our lives. How can we take our wisdom and make a profound difference in helping others, so they may avoid some of the mistakes we have made in our past?
Do you need to step through some of the doors of your past and shut them forever? Closing the doors and never going back through them will help you enjoy your future life and appreciate what you have experienced. You will be more focused on how you wish to fulfill the rest of your life and how you can help others with theirs.
