Well, I am here to tell you that life doesn’t have to be this way just because you hit mid-life. What I have for you inside this program is the finest wisdom I know of to transform, rejuvenate, and revitalize your life, no matter what decade you’re in.
See, I don’t believe in aging gracefully.
To me, that sounds like a euphemism for something we all fear and hate. It sounds like third place.
Like, “Well, what I really wanted was to stay young forever, or at least seem to be young forever… but I got ‘aging gracefully’ instead… which is fine, I guess…”
I believe in getting better with age.
I believe that as we move through life, life presents us with more and better opportunities to kick ass!!
I think we’ve got it wrong as a society (at least in the United States).
We seem to think that, for women, aging means inevitable decline and decay:
- Aches and pains
- Slowing metabolism and extra weight
- Lost dreams
- “Can’t teach an old dog new tricks”
- Overwhelm and stress
- The end of career possibilities
- The end of romance
And maybe even the end of the story.
Why do we believe that?
We believe it because society (and older generations of women) tells us what we can expect. We believe it because we have so-called evidence that life, our health, and our bodies deteriorate as we get older.
But what if we chose to believe something different?
(I mean, society has been wrong about a bunch of stuff, no?)
