Navigating the Midlife Transition
In midlife, many of us will face an overload of demands.
Common midlife struggles include aging parents, relationship problems, health concerns, and identity questions—it’s no surprise that these middle years have been shown to be the lowest in happiness!
Many of us will feel a need to examine who we are, where we’ve been, and what we want out of our second half.
In this talk, we delve into the challenges and opportunities of midlife, and we learn the critical steps we need to take in order not only to survive but to thrive, in middle age and beyond.
Moms Facing the Empty Nest
I worry I’ll never find the kind of fulfillment I felt as a mother.
I’m scared that the best years of my life are behind me.
I wonder: What’s next for me?
Does any of this resonate? Many of us—especially full-time mothers—will feel a keen sense of loss and longing when our teens leave home. We will question our role and purpose if it’s not to be caregivers to our children. Add to that common midlife struggles around aging parents, intimate relationships, and health concerns, and this is the “perfect storm” of stressors.
At this time, it will be critical for us to get clear on who we are and where to find meaning now that the kids are gone, and how to create a life of joy and fulfillment in the empty nest. In this talk we’ll learn the critical steps to do just that.
Create a Life of Purpose
Most people say their goal in life is to be happy and many believe that more money is the key to attaining that goal; the research disagrees.
One of the key factors in increasing happiness is living a life of purpose.
But what does that mean, exactly? And how does one actually do this?
In this talk, we define what purpose means to us, debunk common myths about purpose, and learn the essential questions we need to ask in order to discover our purpose and live it day in, day out—at any age.
