Breaking free from the heavy weight of guilt

Guilt, schmilt. Are you tired of carrying the heavy weight of guilt because you’re not able to do everything for everyone? By midlife, we’ve been making choices in our lives for decades. We have had to make decisions daily, even hourly, because we can’t be everywhere and everything to everyone – all at the same time. Noticing, understanding and shining light on our superfluous feelings of guilt can help us be more giving, compassionate people, and lead to living a more positive life. The choices we have made and continue…

Hearing Your Inner Voice Can Help Ground You to Live a More Positive Life

Unmet Expectations in Life: It’s Time to Climb Out from Under their Weight

Everyone wants to be happy, no doubt. Especially in midlife when we feel like our ducks should be lined up nicely in a row… On our way to an easier street. Kids mostly grown. Jobs relatively secure. Relationships rather solid. We would have expected to start coasting into a more peaceful, dare I say, cheerful, time in life. Which it could be, but we ruin it for ourselves with trouble-making expectations. Our expectations are killing us – squashing our joy. “Expectation is the root of all heartache.” – William Shakespeare…

Finding Purpose in Midlife – Welcome to the Midlife Awakening

Finding Purpose in Midlife Welcome to the Midlife Awakening I feel like there comes a day in the early part of every woman’s midlife years when she gains a level of clarity about herself and her life that she may not have had for decades – a midlife awakening. This awakening is an invitation, an entry point, to a period of dramatic and liberating transformation. “And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”…

Six Traits of Positive Thinking Women Over Fifty (Who Kick Butt)

6 Traits of Positive Thinking Women Over Fifty We’re all trying to be our best self and live our best life, especially after we hit fifty. On that mission, some days we feel victorious and some days we feel like we’re a complete mess. In the middle of it all lies our attitude and all-important (my opinion!) mindset. Why do some women seem so positive and confident as they power through their day, and some women walk around feeling defeated and undeserving? How can you feel more positive and mindfully…

Stress in Life After Fifty | Taking It One Day at a Time

By midlife, every one of us (including us positive thinkers) has some level of unhealthy stress and overwhelm going on in their life. Some of the stress and overwhelm stems from our personal circumstances, some comes from other people’s drama around us, and some of it is of our own creation. What we all have in common is often simply trying to do too much. Regardless of what the sources of your stress may be, when the stress level gets the best of you, you’ve got to simplify, follow your…
