Being a woman of midlife (& beyond) we can sometimes forget how special we are. We certainly haven’t reached our ‘used by date’ and have so much to offer. I know so many inspirational women in the 50+ age range who are not sitting back and just accepting ‘their lot in life’. They are getting out there and being part of life and enjoying their Midlife experience.
It is so refreshing to me to see what these women are achieving and they certainly aren’t celebrities. They are ‘normal’ women like you and I who are making the most of their life experience.
We can all be women like this, we just need to BELIEVE IN OURSELVES!
Motivation, especially in Midlife and beyond is something we can all benefit from, so I’ve decided to start a regular post with some of my favourites. Here are 5 Quotes which I hope will Inspire your day. Pin them, download or print them off and enjoy.
5 Quotes to Inspire Your Day
Too often we live with regrets rather than accepting what has passed and looking to the future. Midlife is a wonderful time to reflect on the person you are NOW and recognise your future potential.
Midlife is a time when we can find ourselves alone. This could be because of divorce, becoming a widow or just never finding ‘the one’. However, being alone doesn’t mean you have to be lonely. I recently wrote about being alone in midlife and I’d love you to read my thoughts – Facing life alone in Midlife
Do you feel you have experienced a ‘Midlife crisis’ or have you embraced this phase of life and the freedom it brings? It is all about your attitude. Freedom to be who we want to be, freedom to do what we want to do, freedom to choose.
‘Middle age’ or ‘Midlife’, which I thinks sounds much more appealing, is definitely a time when we can take a step back and re-evaluate our life. It is now YOUR TIME to discover who we are and where we want to go. Our responsibilities to family can now take a back seat as children leave the nest and carve out their own lives.
This quote resonates with me and I’m sure many of you. For too long the focus has been to live our life defined by a number – our age – rather than just living life. I personally have never really worried about my age but I have been concerned that I am healthy enough to enjoy my later years. There is a difference between worrying about ageing because of your looks and being concerned about ageing in good health. Go out and live and enjoy!
I love this last quote – YOU HAVE THE POWER to change your life so don’t be stuck – make the changes you need to be happy and healthy – yes healthy – to enjoy life to the max!
