Four years ago, when I was a couple of months away from my fiftieth birthday, I was secretly freaking the hell out!
I was completely stuck in a rut and terrified that I’d wasted the best years of my life and I’d left it way too late to do anything about it.
I couldn’t get away from the endless spinning thoughts telling me that I needed to ‘sort my life out’. Everything felt stuck and unfulfilling. And I was numbing out my fear of being trapped here forever (cue wine, Netflix and chocolate).
I was terrified that fifty represented the beginning of the end, the slow decline into decrepitude (which is TOTAL b.s. by the way!)
What if my fears are true? What if this IS all there is for me? I was constantly criticising and judging myself. “Why can’t you just be happy?” “Why can’t you just ‘grow some’ and make a move?”
The saddest thing about all of this was that I was gradually losing my confidence and self-belief, staying small, keeping quiet and dimming my light. I’d lost sight of who I was, all I could be, my passions and the dreams I once had.
And it all became so familiar I believed it WAS ‘me’.
Thank f**k I was WRONG!
Back then I couldn’t see a way out. And yet I’ve changed my life completely. I dug deep and understood myself better than ever before. I tapped into what I really wanted, found my mission, my purpose, my calling, whatever you want to call it. And I re-created my life.
I’ve realised that I am more capable, creative, passionate and purposeful than I ever DARED think possible! (don’t get me wrong I’m still a work in progress and learning all the time.) The difference is that now I feel like I am doing something way more meaningful, aligned to who I am, why I’m here AND I have my inner fire to keep me company!
