Coaching women in midlife is a passion for me!
At this time of life, they have so much wisdom and so much experience and there is still time to create a life full of meaning and joy.
Yet for so many, their song is still in them.
Most of us as women have so much fear and doubt. I know I did. After shutting down my own needs and wants for many many years, I had a wake-up call.
I know many of you have had wake up calls.
Mine was breast cancer.
Yes, you can get sick, if you don’t stand up for yourself and take care of yourself and your purpose.
That was 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve made a practice of learning all I can about this and learning as many tools for empowerment as I could. I’ve chosen the most effective ones to banish fear and doubt and get my clients in touch with their natural feminine power and inspiration and natural rhythms. And now people are surprised to hear that I was fearful and doubted myself.
My mission is to inspire women to love and honor themselves enough to go for what they truly want and to give them the powerful tools to overcome their obstacles, so they can actually have the amazing life they were always meant to have!
You can have that, too!
It’s never too late.
Many times it’s difficult for us to even identify what we want, let alone ask for it, which in my vocabulary is to go for it. We’re often so busy doing for others, putting out fires, performing and trying to hold it all together. This is true especially for women as we are naturally multi-taskers, caregivers and nurturers, who often put our own needs last. And…. this is a recipe for being unfulfilled in our lives.
Self–love is the fertile soil from which the sacred seed of your Divine Feminine takes root ~Ocean Whitehawk
Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about self-love and what it really is and why it took me so long to cultivate it. It occurs to me now that self-love is the master key to joy, happiness, and success. I’ve been working on self-love for years and still at times I get blindsided by a rejection or a judgment.
I’ll be gliding along, feeling good about myself and my life when suddenly something jumps out at me that rocks my boat. Somebody says something to me that feels critical, another person is rude, another doesn’t respond to my calls or emails, I forget to pay a bill. All my old feelings from my past of being unworthy, unlovable and inadequate come up.
Loving yourself, being yourself and trusting yourself create a life that fulfills you and supports you. How you feel about yourself has a profound effect on your inner happiness as well as all the outer circumstances of your life.
