1I am not done. Not nearly. I have as much possibility in front of me as I have experience behind me. That's what gives me so much power.
2I am never starting from scratch no matter who I want to be or what I want to do next.
3I accept responsibility for myself. This midlife tipping point asks me to look at my habits, beliefs, and behaviours.
4I am a leader and I do the world a disservice if I disappear or accept invisibility. On the contrary, at this stage, I am called to make my most honest and authentic contribution.
5I know that real connection, in which we can all be ourselves and express our viewpoints and still belong, is the way forward.
6I share my story because I know it matters. My story creates connection and ignites empathy. It creates the blueprint for what’s possible and makes room for younger generations to step into their power more easily.
7I recognize that all emotions are valid and important and have the self-compassion to be with whatever comes up.
8I give myself permission to dream and challenge myself to see past what I’ve always believed to be true.
9I understand that there is a huge variety of experiences at this age and make room for perspectives that differ from my own.
10I fight ageism when I see it including my own internalized limiting beliefs about getting older.
11I’m aware that what’s important to me can change over time and allow myself to change with it.
12I believe fulfillment, self-acceptance, and self-expression are fundamental to healthy aging.
13I give myself permission to stay in the sacred mystery of not knowing what is next.
14I am open to learning new things. Curiosity is the key that unlocks midlife magic.
