Cheers Beauties! Welcome to CatherineGraceO & Mastering Modern Midlife
I’m Catherine Grace O’Connell, an Ageism Positivist, An Empowerment Cat-alyst, the Founder of Forever Fierce: MIdlife Matters, a global Facebook Community dedicated to supporting and celebrating the Modern Midlife Woman, and the CEO of MODlife Media, a female-focused message based digital media agency.
Women at Midlife & Beyond are the Perfect Storm. We are the first demographic in history to have health and vitality, wisdom and life experience, and a pocketbook to match. We are a fierce creative force balanced by compassion and empathy. Together, we control over 80% of the nation’s disposable income and it’s time we make our presence known!
Six years ago, my life looked vastly different. I was a woman who almost lost her life to late stage Lyme Disease, disempowered from decades of trauma and abuse. I had no self-esteem, no passion, no purpose, and no future.
I changed! My beliefs changed and my life began to dramatically transform. I let go of who I was told to be in order to become the woman I had always desired to be.
I’ve been on a deeply spiritual path for over 30 years. I have my Masters in Spiritual Psychology and a PhD from the University of Rise Like A Phoenix. I’m an energy worker trained in many different modalities. I’ve studied with some of the top spiritual teachers, mystics, and mentors who empowered me to understand true transformation happens from within. I didn’t have a Tribe so I created one! I found my Voice and have no inhibitions to using it. The shyness is gone and my Speaker Reel proves it!
Our attitudes, beliefs, energy, patterns, and behaviors in the present determine our future. What we think and believe directly affects how we age. Through my life experience, I’ve become an expert at Mastering Modern Midlife and it’s my passion to share what I’ve learned with others.
What is a Modern Midlife?
A Modern Midlife is a Midlife that’s vastly different from what we saw growing up in our Mother’s and Grandmother’s generations.
It’s a Midlife deeply connected to Mind, Body & Spirit where women live both inside out and outside in.
It’s a Midlife where a woman begins to awaken and realize she’s in control of her life, her dreams and her destiny. She is designing her life, her way. It is a life where meaning, passion, purpose and paying it forward are at the forefront.
A Modern Midlife is a time in a woman’s life where she sees herself as empowered, relevant, confident and highly capable.
She understands that a healthy lifestyle is the key to a healthy life. She desires to look and feel her best and understands that true beauty starts from within. Community, connection and creativity fuel her.
She radiates with qualities of empathy, kindness, and compassion and lives life with a “Fierce” heartfelt intensity. She is the epitome of elegance and grace combined with a healthy dose of Moxie. She is the ultimate Phoenix Rising.
How do I Master Modern Midlife?
Through our experience together, it’s my intention to share everything I’ve learned in over 30 years on the spiritual path to live the years of Midlife & Beyond to the fullest! The first step is shifting your internal perception of the word “Midlife.” It’s not what you thought growing up! It’s vibrant, it’s powerful, it’s creative, and it’s cool! It encompasses acceptance, confidence, and Self Love. Embrace who you are and who you truly desire to be. And let’s get there together!
