Midlife is…

”I think midlife is when the universe gently places

her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close,

and whispers in your ear:

I’m not screwing around. It’s time.

All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms

that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate

and getting hurt – has to go.


Your armor is preventing you

from growing into your gifts.


I understand that you needed these protections

when you were small.

I understand that you believed

your armor could help you secure

all of the things you needed to feel worthy

of love and belonging,

but you’re still searching and you’re more lost than ever.


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 worthy 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.
