“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding, find out what you already know, and you’ll see the way to fly.” – Richard Bach
I spent the weekend with my daughter. We were busy creating lively vision boards…talking about our dreams…big dreams…manifesting and setting intentions.
We were also talking about Midlife.
A new Midlife.
A Modern Midlife.
The conversation took an interesting turn as we began to talk about a shift taking place.
The shift happening on the inside of a woman.
My daughter’s an actress. She’s making things happen…big things…big dreams…
Landing major roles.
Working alongside big name actors and actresses.
How’s she doing it?
My daughter was born with Moxie.
The whole Moxie thing was her idea…her inspiration…her attitude…her brilliance.
She was born beautiful and Fierce, brimming with confidence…filled with belief…
Until the world began chipping it away, little by little.
Forcing her to turn within, to discover the power she had inside, the power of her mind, the power of her spirit, the power of her beliefs, the power of her thoughts…
Our paths began to converge.
The spiritual path, the path of awareness, mindfulness…the power within…was a path I found decades ago.
It’s a path not well known in my Mother’s generation.
We began to talk about the new Midlife…a Midlife that’s lived both outside in and inside out…a Midlife unlike any Midlife that ever existed before…a Modern Midlife…a Midlife consisting of Mind, Body, Spirit and a hell of a lot of Fierce Moxie.
A Midlife where the Phoenix Rises…lit from within.
As we looked at our vision boards…we talked about our dreams…and we talked about the power we have within to make them happen…to manifest them into a reality…a new reality…our reality.
A conversation I could never have had with my mother or my grandmother.
They wouldn’t understand.
But she does.
My daughter’s making things happen…big things…by changing her beliefs…by peeling away layers…by letting go of old beliefs…by choosing new empowering ones…by realizing the power she has inside…unstoppable power.
So am I.
Making things happen.
Changing my beliefs.
Realizing the power that lies within.
It’s a new Midlife. It’s a cool Midlife. It’s a Modern Midlife. It’s a Midlife with Moxie.
