I believe there are no mistakes in life, only valuable learning experiences. When our fears begin to surface, our anxiety can go through the roof. I am grateful for the exercise that I take people through so they no longer live in fear and anxiety. Through this process, fear and anxiety come up less and less as my coaching clients learn to live and walk at the level of their Soul. It becomes their natural way of being and doing.
I remember in my mid 30s watching a slightly younger woman process through her parent’s stuff…
The 30s is a really painful time because you still feel like you need a mother, but you don’t have a mother. Basically you’re sitting with all of the things that are wrong with your mother. All the patterns, all the whatever that isn’t true. You really want to break them because you don’t want to pass them on. You’re just so generationally conscious that it hurts. That’s what made all of my 30s feel super painful.
Observing women in their 40s has been interesting. In your 40s, you won’t listen to anybody. You’re like eighteen again, and you know everything. You’ve learned to depend on yourself because you’ve listened to other people and what they told you didn’t work anyways.
Then there’s perimenopause and menopause. I had emotional pain from losing my father to suicide when I was in highschool and then losing my dance career from a gymnastics accident and a weak decision to get married. This is what came up for me during the menopausal years. Now that I’m in my mid 60s, I’m enjoying the freedom of doing whatever I damn well please and living with a new husband for almost 10 years after we each stepped out of 33 year old starter marriages.
