Wishing you a beautiful belated Valentine’s Day! Hope you’re feeling love for YOURSELF and from the important people in your life.
Do you feel like you’re making the most of your time and savoring these precious years?
“Is there a dream you’re putting off because you’re afraid that it’s too late or that you don’t have the wherewithal to make it happen?“
Maybe you’re worried that it’s too late for you, that you’ll make a fool of yourself or that you don’t have what it takes to create the life that you dream about.
You know you have special gifts and abilities—yet you’re not sure where to begin setting the wheels in motion.
The reason I’m asking you this is that I got a call from a woman I’ll call Louise who recently retired from her long term clinical practice. More than anything her dream is to create retreats for women.
Louise knows she has the skills and smarts to make a difference in the lives of these women yet she remains stuck in her ability to bring this dream to fruition.
The truth is that with the right support and a strong commitment anything is possible. These years can be exceptionally rich, vibrant and deeply fulfilling.
This week the New York Times came out with a report saying that women in their 60s and 70s continue to work because they want to and they get so much out of making a difference in the lives of others.
In other words, IT IS NOT TOO LATE!!
Perhaps you don’t feel like you’re getting the best support and guidance to navigate through midlife and beyond and that you’re spinning your wheels.
It does NOT have to be this way. You don’t have to go it ALONE. In fact you’d be far more effective with support and a team of like-minded souls behind you.
I know that it can be hard to trust that someone has your back and that they can help you move forward in a significant way.
Sometimes it’s easier to settle, to live in the past or in a reactionary state—rather than blazing the trail you’ve always wanted to pursue.
It’s scary putting your ass on the line and claiming these years fully and wholeheartedly.
These are the wisdom and courageous years—if you choose them to be. You don’t have to buy into the fear model any more.
YOU have something unique to contribute and this is your time to set the wheels in motion. INSTEAD of hoping and praying that things will come together for you in the way you had always hoped.
Is there a dream you’re putting off because you’re afraid that it’s too late or that you don’t have the wherewithal to make it happen?
Answer these questions for yourself:
- What are the next steps I need to take in my life?
- What holds me back from reaching my goals?
- What’s my plan for this year and beyond?
As always, I look forward to hearing from you!
