Kicking Some Midlife Ass
You must do the things you think you cannot do.— Eleanor Roosevelt.
I am not quite sure where to begin. At the beginning, I suppose. But which beginning?
I will start with the beginning of the transformation. Sure, my transformation was physical – I lost 80 pounds and dropped clothing sizes, but it was so much more than that. I spent the past two years overcoming “I can’t.” The “I can’t” which has been embedded in me for decades. Almost half a century. I just made the decision, one decision at a time.
I gritted my teeth and slowly but surely said “Yes” to as many new experiences I could. I decided the only way to grow was to be uncomfortable, so I pushed through my comfort zone and came out the other side, mostly unscathed.
I plan on blogging each new experience, working through my fears and anxiety along the way. I will also post practical things which helped me on my journey, from meal prepping to mindset. Sometimes, I’m sure I will kick ass. Sometimes, it’s going to suck. And that’s ok.
Why do I entitle my journey as a Productive Midlife Crisis? Well, I incorrectly see myself as midlife. I’m sure most would argue that ship sailed 10 years ago. Productive? That is a personal definition, but for me it means to set goals, each just slightly further along than the last, and work to get there. It’s been crazy making myself proud with every step forward that I take!
Join me in making our second act the better act and become the person you always wanted to be! The world needs you!
