It is time you stood out rather than trying to fit in! Let others see your awesomeness! Believe in yourself and what you have to offer to yourself and others. It is your time to shine.
If you are over the age of 55 years and have been living your life according to others needs and wishes, trying to please, keep the peace, running here, organizing this that and the other for others, it is time to re-evaluate your life and look at setting a new course that reflects you, your values, your needs, dreams and desires.
I am not saying to up sticks leave your family, friends, job or whatever your life looks like at the moment but don’t wait for some major life event, before you take stock of what you really want your life to look like going forward through mid-life and beyond!
It is at this stage more than any other that you will have the time, experience and hopefully the freedom to live life on your terms. It is a time for reflection and an opportunity to make the rest of your life matter for you. If you have neglected yourself over the years in the busyness of daily life then it is now time to take care of you and your needs.
It can be a difficult time but it can also be very liberating! It will depend on your belief and attitude about yourself and others. If you have always put others needs before your own it may be more difficult but the best time to start is now! Don’t wait until something happens that turns your world up-side-down or you will find it so much harder.
It is only by taking the time to do this that you will begin to let you awesomeness shine! Not the roles you play so well, but the authentic you! If you don’t know what that looks like that’s okay! It is not something you have to achieve or do for anyone else it is purely for you to get to know yourself from a different perspective! It is a time of self-awareness where you can nurture yourself safely discovering your own uniqueness then letting it shine for all the world to see. It is your time to stand out!
