I’m not sure that I can say this “nicely”.
I try so hard to be gentle and loving but I just want you to STOP, and really listen.
It isn’t enough.
It isn’t enough to use the excuse of being too tired, too busy and too overwhelmed to talk about this. You are at great risk and I’m not sure you even know it.
It’s time to wake up beautiful.
We are a generation of women who were told we could do it all, be it all. But on top of going after it all, we have also carried with us very traditional roles; and the roles of mother, daughter and wife has gotten layered on top of them.
For many of us, it has not only been our greatest joy; it has become our baggage.
And as a result of taking on a lot of “what everyone else around you wants” that came with these roles, we stopped living a life that was unique, passionate and true to our souls.
We’ve been told that there’s never been a better time in history for women.
But if that’s really true then …
Why do 1 in 4 women take an antidepressant?
Why are women 70 percent more likely than men to experience depression during the course of their lifetime?
Why is there one divorce approximately every 36 seconds? That’s nearly 2,400 divorces per day!
Why do almost 20% of women say that they are in a sexless marriage?
I believe the reason is that in believing the hype that we could do it all, be it all and have it all, we’ve somehow lost the most important thing…ourselves.
Yes, it’s time to wake up my love.
For most women somewhere between the age of 30 and 50 we find ourselves feeling stuck and even powerless. We look up and suddenly the busiest years of our lives are the most unfulfilling years of our lives.
For me, in trying to fill all of my roles as the perfect wife, mother, professional and volunteer I somehow lost myself. I found myself struggling silently with feeling unfulfilled, exhausted and overwhelmed. My journey through divorce, single parenting, dating, empty nesting and creating my own financially self-sufficient life and future was ultimately my journey to feeling alive again.
And I know that I am not alone. I know because you have told me so.
You don’t share it on social media because you work hard to pretend it isn’t happening. But you call me, email me and share your stories privately when I meet you in person…and I love when you do because when you share the truth of how you really feel with me, you begin to turn yourself back on!
You are waking up – either because of divorce, empty nesting, financial crisis, illness or simply an unwelcome boredom in your own life that has triggered a realization that your life doesn’t work for you anymore. It’s not satisfying or fulfilling, and you want more…more love, passion, sex, joy, spontaneity, connection energy, adventure, purpose, fun and excitement!
As you should.
It’s time to give yourself permission to want more of everything you desire.
Your children need you.
Your husband, lover and partner need you.
Your clients and colleagues need you.
Your business needs you.
The world needs you to wake up to wanting more as woman.
I invite you to share your story with me so that you can begin your journey back to the magnificent, sensual and powerful woman that you are, schedule a time for our private, turn-on conversation
