One of the most powerful times in a woman’s life is the beginning of her 50’s. The one caveat is that you have to believe and OPT IN ... as they say.
How to Opt In?
Your perspective adjusts to a higher view - Let’s assume you have a million burdens and more people than that relying on you, now what? Give up? What’s the point? Deep down you know there is so much more to you and so much more that you are supposed to be experiencing in a good way…hence the anxiety about where we are. We are meant to be bigger than we can ever imagine and deep down we know this; it is what pulls us forth. Every atom of the universe is being called forth to become better; every day always. We cannot escape this pull and why should we? Let’s try to change our perspective and see a bigger picture to our daily struggles. Each and every one of my difficulties and problems and struggles (and there were many) made me a better human. I did not know it at the time (we usually don’t), but in your 50’s, you begin to see from that higher perspective, higher than we were able to realize in our 20s, 30s and 40s. This is one of life’s greatest joys and it should be celebrated daily. I now look at any issues/problems I am facing with a new found awareness, wondering how I will evolve from the latest problem and I see it as an opportunity for growth as is my choice.
Remember you have earned your confidence - More wrinkles…so what! Acceptance is one of life’s greatest joys. When you have achieved a state of detachment from negative viewpoints; you have given yourself the most amazing, life enhancing gift with a daily enormous rate of return. Just don’t care! This does not mean to stop engaging with others; it just means to not let anyone's viewpoint affect the loving care you give yourself. You will find your joy will increase exponentially when you choose to be happy rather than sad. Again, it is a choice you get to make daily.
Love More - The more love you give, the more you get back. There are some things in life that are infinite and that gain strength the more you use it. Love is one of those things. We do not really know how to love in our youth. We expect something back and we change our love as our ego changes, which is often. Another beautiful outcome of aging is the ability to love without strings attached. Love simply for the sake of love is more powerful than any emotion on earth. It is called unconditional love and it has a special force attached to it that nourishes and evolves your soul. You will reap the benefit with good health, joy and a free spirit that finds peace in every day, every way.
