When faced with the daunting prospect of reinventing my life at 50, the only thing I was clear on was that I wanted to feel passionate about it. I wanted to create a life that lit me up and set my soul on fire.
The biggest question, so many of us face in finding our passion and purpose for this next chapter is figuring out what that is.
Our deepest soul desires can lead us there but the catch is that often following our heart means getting outside our comfort zone. We will be asked to challenge our beliefs, push our limits and show up consistently for uncomfortable action, leaving us feeling paralyzed in self-doubt, fear, and procrastination. I know this because I’ve been there so many times along the way.
One of the best things I did (and I still do today) is to surround myself with like-minded people who understand my journey and can encourage and support me; people who remind me why I started and hold my feet to the fire when I want to curl up in a ball and hide. I know without a doubt that I would not be where I am now if it weren't for this.
One of my favorite quotes is:
“If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together." ~African Proverb~
This is why I created the Midlife Kickstarter Mastermind. It's an intimate group of midlife women who come together to support and encourage each other in stepping beyond their comfort zones to create their kick ass next chapter.
-Trusting your dreams and being true to yourself in everything you do.
-Waking up each day excited energized and engaged.
-Having a clear vision and confidently taking steps in its direction.
-Experiencing the satisfaction that comes from living a life infused with passion and purpose: a life you are excited about.
There is so much power in a group of powerful women on the same journey lifting each other up and cheering each other on. If there is one thing I know it's that a group of midlife women coming together in sisterhood and support can move mountains and change the world. We were never meant to do it alone
