If you’re in midlife and you are ready to “make the most of your second half,” then you might have some big goals - things you really want to do! So, you start planning. And then you look at your goals and think, “ugh, this is going to be hard. It’s going to take a lot from me to accomplish this thing or have this dream of mine become a reality.”
Are you tired of feeling like life is just passing you by? OR that life is happening to you and you don’t really have any control? Or maybe you just think that making any changes would be too hard - take too much energy, time, or money… Let's figure out how to stop letting life pass us by!
Ready to make some changes or start fresh? A brand new shiny planner can help, right? It always sounds like a good idea to get a new planner and make some real plans to meet your goals, get organized, and stay on task. And, with so much going on in our lives, it’s hard to keep track of everything. So, yes, we definitely need a planner in midlife! But WHAT IS the best planner for women in midlife?
Do you feel like you’ve just been going through the motions? Almost like you just don’t really have a direction in life. For a lot of us, it goes like this: Wake up tired, rush around, take care of things, get exhausted, overwhelmed and stressed, become irritable, go to bed and sleep restlessly. And, a lot of times, we are staying busy, because, well, what else is there to do? If we didn’t stay busy, what would we do?
So, here we are in another new year – how did THAT HAPPEN? Right? The beginning of a new year is a great time to work on our own Clear Vision by creating a vision board. Wouldn’t you like to motivate yourself to reach your goals by visualizing your dreams coming true? All motivation is welcomed by me!!
Do you set goals – like actually sit down and take the time to DO goal planning? Are you someone who gets excited to look over the past year, make notes of your achievements, and make detailed plans for the upcoming year? Yeah, me either. Well, I never used to. I actually began doing basic goal setting the past couple of years. This year I intentionally focused on the two basic goal setting essentials, because I am really feeling a need to get better at 1) planning ahead and 2) recognizing my achievements.
I believe – 100% – that it is critical to learn new things all the time. And, learning new things in midlife is something we need to prioritize. We know it’s important to stay mentally sharp, especially as we age, and there are actually tons of reasons why it’s so important.
I never really felt like I knew my purpose in life. I never felt like I had a passion for anything. Until I had my first child. At that point, I finally felt like I had a purpose... But I knew that it wouldn’t last forever. I remember rocking my daughter in the rocking chair in her baby room and crying as I thought about her leaving and going off to college. What would I do if I didn’t have this baby? I would, once again, have no purpose.
Your best life coach - get help with finding your purpose For years, I pondered, wondered, questioned, and even doubted (during some pretty bad times) my purpose for being here.…
