3 EXPECTATIONS TO FREE YOURSELF FROM

There are three underlying expectations we need to release ourselves from to live a positive life #midlife #women #letgo

LETTING GO OF EXPECTATIONS

I read an interesting article a while ago on letting go of expectations. Three that were referred to really caught my eye and I felt that there was more that could be expanded upon for women in Midlife. The three expectations that I feel women in their 50's and onwards need to release immediately are: 1) Things will always go your way, 2) Things will never go your way, and 3) Eventually, you will arrive. 

I've been guilty of all three of these and thought I'd have a deeper look into them and why they take hold of us. If you battle with any of them, perhaps there's a few tips you can take away with you for further consideration.

7 FABULOUS QUOTES ABOUT BECOMING MORE ALIVE

In honour of my Word for the Year MORE, I've chosen 7 fabulous quotes about becoming more of who you are and of choosing to live the best life possible. #midlife #women #quote

ARE YOU WANTING SOME INSPIRATION?

In honour of my Word for the Year MORE, I've chosen 7 fabulous quotes about becoming more of who you are and of choosing to live the best life possible. Each one of these quotes inspired me in some way, so I thought I'd share them today.

HOW TO FIND JOY THROUGH ENGAGING WITH OTHERS

Increasing enjoyment in life can be as easy as engaging and connecting with others - at our own pace in our own time. #midlife #women #connection

ARE YOU ENGAGING WITH OTHER PEOPLE?

Becoming More in Midlife and finding joy every day begins with engaging with other people and actively participating in life. It's so easy to sit back and let life pass us by, to tell ourselves that we don't have anything worthwhile to offer, or that we can't be bothered interacting with other people. 

If you're anything like me, you might even feel like you're becoming more introverted as you get older and wonder what happened to the outgoing person you used to be. I think it's important to realize that we don't have to be raging extraverts to be able to enjoy engagement - it's about finding the right amount that energizes us without overloading our systems.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE

It's time to have a coffee and a chat - I'll tell you all about what's been happening in my world this month #ifwewerehavingcoffee #midlife

It's time to celebrate the end of February, I'm running a little bit late with this post, but there's lots of news to share- so, why not have a fabulous virtual cup of coffee with me while I update you on what's been going on in my life lately. I love a good 'Taking Stock' blog post, so I hope you'll humour me and sit a while as I share my news.

8 ATTRIBUTES OF A MIDLIFE MILLENNIAL (PART 2)

Midlifers are becoming the new Millennials - here's 8 attributes we have in common with them

LATE IN LIFE MILLENNIALS

Last week I started a post on why Midlifers are late in life Millennials. We have so much in common with the traits of the Millennial generation - and often we manifest them from a deeper life experience. These attributes aren't something we've been handed on a plate, they've been hard won through living life in all its highs and lows.

WE ALL NEED MORE DOWN TIME

We're onto "D" in the "List of More" and it's all about giving ourselves some down time - not always having to be doing something, not always having a plan in place, not always marching to the beat of a drum - just learning to chill out a little.

IT'S TIME TO SLOW DOWN A LITTLE

8 ATTRIBUTES OF A MIDLIFE MILLENNIAL (PART 1)

Midlifers are becoming the new Millennials - here's 8 attributes we have in common with them

FROM PERENNIAL TO MILLENNIAL

A while back I wrote a post about how Midlife is all about being a Perennial. The term originated from a US internet entrepreneur Gina Pell, since then, I've wondered if maybe we're actually just late in life Millennials? Have you ever stopped to think about the characteristics we Midlifers are manifesting? They definitely have a Millennial flavour to them and today I'm planning on delving a little bit deeper into our similarities.

6 FABULOUS DAYS IN AND AROUND BRISBANE

Visiting Brisbane and filling 6 days with some fabulous outings, food, and fun.

HOW I SPENT 6 WONDERFUL DAYS IN BRISBANE

For those who are followers of my blog's Facebook page (if you're not then I'd love you to pop over and hit the "Like" button to get my updates) you'd know that I've just returned from a fabulous week's visit to Brisbane in Queensland (Australia). We live in Western Australia and I'd never been over to the North East coast before, so we threw caution (and a bit of money) to the wind and booked some tickets and an air bnb and flew on over.

MORE CALM AND CONTENTMENT

We're onto "C" in the "List of More" and it's time to figure out ways to be calm and content. A couple of Saturdays ago we talked about learning to breathe more and relax, now we move onto what having a looser grip on life leads to.

3 THINGS TO RELEASE FOR A MORE VIBRANT LIFE

Nobody wants to be old and grumpy - here's a few things to release to make sure you live a vibrant life in your 50's and beyond. #midlife #vibrantlife

WHAT DO WE NEED TO STOP DOING TO LIVE VIBRANTLY?

When I chose "MORE" for my Word for 2019 I wanted to focus on becoming the best possible version of myself both now, and in the future as I age. It seems fairly pointless to be flourishing at 50 and then sliding down the slippery slope into becoming a boring old woman by the time I'm 70. So, here's a few pitfalls I've noticed older women falling victim too, and ways to avoid them.

If we want to live vibrantly, to be interesting and attractive to others, we need to stop behaving like we're old ladies and start being upbeat and positive in our approach to life. It's time to stop doing three things that have come to define senior citizens.

4 THINGS YOU DESERVE IN LIFE

There are four things in life that we all deserve - and none of them are selfish to ask for

KNOW WHAT YOU DESERVE AND DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS

Know who you are.
Know what you want.
Know what you deserve.
Don't settle for less.

5 WAYS TO HANDLE A DIFFICULT PERSON

Some helpful advice on how to handle living or working with a difficult person, and how to survive the stress.

MY EXPERIENCE

I’ve mentioned several times over the last couple of years that I struggle sometimes with work drama and coping with a co-worker whose personal life overflows into our work environment. What I came to see over time was the detrimental impact it had on my own mental health and it’s taken a long time to find a workable solution to the situation.

LET'S HAVE MORE APPRECIATION AND ACCEPTANCE

The first letter in my A to Z of how I'm going to achieve "More" in my life this year.

IT'S TIME FOR MORE APPRECIATION AND ACCEPTANCE 

In choosing my Word of the Year MORE, I mentioned a list of the A to Z of things I'd like to develop more of in my life throughout the year. I'm not planning on participating in the AtoZ Challenge this year, so instead I thought I'd work my way through my "List of More" by choosing a letter every second Saturday to write about (interspersed with my Saturday Snippets - because they're fun to do too).

MY WORD FOR 2019 - MORE!

My word for this year is More! I've pared back and I'm reading to open my arms now and accept More!

AN ALTERNATIVE TO LESS

There's been a lot written over the last few years about minimalism and simplicity - and I'm a big fan of both concepts. But, after spending 2018 Rising from the ashes, now there's something in me that's calling for a different approach - something that's saying that it's okay to ask for MORE, that it's possible to be MORE, and that there's so much MORE out there for me to experience and learn. So, this year I feel like I want to open up my life and because of that, I've chosen MORE as my Word for the Year.
