“Midlife: when the Universe grabs your shoulders and tells you ‘I’m not f-ing around, use the gifts you were given.’” – Brene Brown

What if Midlife is our greatest superpower?
What if we began to view each passing year as a gift?
The gift of life, the gift of wisdom, the gift of experience, the gift that allows us to view life from an entirely new vantage point?
Hindsight allows for insight.
The longer the life, the longer the lens.
Midlife opens a gateway. A gateway to the opportunity for a new life and a new beginning.
Midlife requires Moxie. Moxie is attitude. Moxie is character. Moxie is fierce. Moxie is a way of looking at life.
Moxie is a choice.
As a child of the 60’s, I saw age through a vastly different lens. Midlife was viewed as an end – over the hill – the beginning of the golden years of retirement, rocking chairs, and pensions.
Life has changed dramatically. Life spans have lengthened. Health, vitality, wisdom and life experience make Midlife the perfect storm – a storm where the Phoenix begins to rise – a storm where the ashes of old belief systems fall away and a new, empowering way to live begins to emerge.
Midlife is a blessing. Midlife is a bridge…a bridge that unites the wisdom, lessons, and experience of decades of life with the opportunities of the unfulfilled, unlived, hidden aspects of our heart and soul waiting to be ignited.
Midlife is a catalyst. Midlife unleashes potential. Fierce potential.
Midlife is brimming with Moxie.
Moxie is where your superpower is found.
Fill your mind with Moxie, with attitude and boundless possibility.
Moxie awakens the potential of the Midlife Woman.
Are you ready to ignite the power and potential inside of you?
