I talked with a friend this week who is feeling sort of blah about her life. She’s in the middle of a transition between her old life and the dreams she had and the life that’s coming. Many of the things she thought she would want to do now, she no longer wants. But the really sad thing was her comment that she didn’t really have a strong will to live. Now she is not suicidal; she just wonders what the point is.
Meanwhile she is trying to make herself do what she thinks she ‘should’ be doing - and is struggling with it - or perhaps struggling with herself.

I know what that’s like! In midlife there are so many changes happening in our lives, our bodies, our emotions. I know I’ve felt many times that it’s hard to grasp onto anything - it’s as if the sand keeps shifting under my feet. As soon as I thought I’d figured out where I was going, everything shifted again and I no longer wanted that.
It seems everywhere there are women who have lost their mojo. Yeah they look like they‘re doing fine. They are often successful in their work, in their home lives. They look successful from the outside, but inside it’s another story.
What a terrible waste for women who have so much to offer and so much to share and so much passion deep inside for life and for living, to be feeling this way. They feel like they‘re living a half life.

And there is so much more. I know it often doesn’t take much to shift my energy and feel fully alive, feel I’ve got my mojo back, feel joyful and creative and passionate about life. So I aim to share with other women my strategies for navigating the choppy waters of mid-life. I’ll be back with more...
Blessings.
