When a woman turns 40 something happens. For most of us it means stepping into a time of change. And as every change, it may represent a challenge as well as an opportunity. I see this time in women’s life as the best to make career changes and step into the full feminine potential without any compromise. And here are my top 5 reasons why:
You know who you are
When you are 40+ it means you lived long enough to get to know yourself. Even if you think you still don’t know who you are, you have enough of evidence and insights. All you need to do is to sit down, take your time and have a look at your life. You will realize who you really are quite quickly. You don’t need anymore anyone else to tell you what you are good at and what your weaknesses are. You already know what your point of power is. You know your greatness and you learned how to to deal with areas where you need some support.
You know what you want
Life has already given you a lot of experience. There were times, situations, places and activities that made you feel happy, alive, fulfilled and excited. You met people that you loved. And of course you already know what you don’t want in your life anymore. I am sure you learned from what made you feel hopeless, not worthy, sad or angry. So you know what you want as well as what you don’t want.
You have gained your life wisdom
You already have the understanding of life that only comes with experiencing life with all the good as well as bad. You lived through some pains and losses and you healed the wounds. You lived through joy, wins and miracles. You have forgiven and you were forgiven for some of the mistakes that happened and pain that was caused. You turned your life experience into your own unique wisdom.
New meaning of life
You already know that there is some other meaning of life for you. And now when your children are growing up and need your full attention less and less, it’s time to become conscious about it. This time now allows you to gradually change your responsibilities and focus to your new life meaning. It’s the best time to prepare for your new life chapter. You don’t want to fall into the empty nesters’ syndrome, do you?
You have a sense of time
You don’t have anymore that feeling that everything is in front of you; so common for youth. It’s not anymore about “One day, when I grow up I will…” You know that now is the most precious time. You know that the present is a gift. You realize that you are in the middle of your life and that makes you real. You don’t have time to fear of what the others say or if you are good enough. You don’t have time for any fear at all. This time you have needs to be used to live fulfilling, joyous, juicy, happy life. And you know the best time to start is now.
Do you agree? Do you see yourself? Cool! You just confirmed you live the best time of your life to create career that you desire.
When a woman turns 40, something special and exciting happens.
