This week for Meaningful Mondays, I asked 5 of my favourite blogging friends to tell me what they felt brought meaning to their lives. Five women over 50 all enjoying midlife and beyond with lives that are rich, not in money terms necessarily, but in being happy and content with their lives.

Midlife brings new meaning to your life
It was interesting that family, friends and faith rated as meaningful parts of these ladies’ lives, however, what I also loved was that doing something for themselves was also important.
This made me think and I ask the question of you:
What are you doing for YOU to bring meaning to your life?
Midlife is a time of FREEDOM for most of us. Freedom from the responsibilities of family, working and being there for everyone but ourselves. Midlife is the time to explore who we are and what we want from the rest of our lives. Of course, it is also a time to share and create memories with our partner, family and friends which adds to the fullness of our life.
I’ve realised that FREEDOM can bring meaning to life. The ability to finally be able to do WHAT WE WANT TO DO, WHEN WE WANT TO DO IT!
So again I ask the question: WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR YOU TO BRING MEANING TO YOUR LIFE?
