Midlife is when….

I think midlife is when the Universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers your ear,

“ I’m not screwing around. It’s time. All this pretending and performing-these coping mechanisms that you’re developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go.

Time is growing short. There are unexplored adventures ahead of you. You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think. You were born worth of love and belonging. Courage and daring are coursing through you. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. it’s time to show up and be seen”
