It took one look at the deep lines surrounding my mouth (that reach from nose to chin) to make me realize that I look like a puppet…on zoom!
After complaining about my puppet like face to my hairdresser, she let me in on a little secret.
Ok, I’ll tell you.
It’s a ring light!
And I’ll admit it, I figured the ring light is cheaper than fillers (and doesn’t involve needles).
Besides, with my doctor reminding me it’s time to schedule another colonoscopy, I figure I don’t need anymore invasive procedures.
So, the ring light was purchased.
Here’s something else I’ll admit: it feels like someone hit me with an aging stick overnight.
I go from boasting about being so ready to be an empty nester this coming Fall and then finding myself crying on my way to the grocery store after my daughter shared with me a Tik Tok she made of her last day in high school.
Holy shit, it’s the end of an era – I will never attend another parent-teacher conference again. I’m trading them for colonoscopies.
Maybe you can relate?
In fact, I know you can because everyday, on the pickle ball court, out to dinner with friends, amongst my clients, and fellow female colleagues.
Any woman in her mid to late 40’s and up can attest to this love/hate relationship as you age.
Leaving you wondering…
Who am I?
How the hell do I begin to figure this all out?
Unfortunately though most of us just suffer through and hope we’ll land on our feet. But what I’ve seen coaching women for the last 10 years is that having a concrete plan keeps us going.
In fact, I use a unique framework sharing 6 key elements helping you minimize the discomfort and actually optimize midlife angst to make the next phase of your life the best.
Would you give yourself that gift?
If so, I’m bringing together an intimate group for monthly meet ups starting this Fall.
Want in? Hit reply and I can share more info.
P.S. Here’s what Midlife Magic Meetups are going to look like…
- Sense of community as you navigate mid-life transitions (offered in-person in Plainview, NY as well as virtually for those afar or prefer the convenience of a remote experience from their homes)
- Discover the 6 key elements that will help you move forward in a more conscious way so you can bust through any and all midlife transitions
- Learn of 10 disciplines that when practiced will leave you feeling confident and clear about your future.
- Understand how your current thinking and way of being is either supporting or detracting from making the next phase of your life the best.
P.P.S. Update-I scheduled a consult with a cosmetic dermatologist and have officially started a slush fund for fillers. Not sure if it will be for me but there’s only one way to find out. Never say never 🙂
Keeping it real…
