Our Need to Dream Again
I recall a time years ago when I had no new dreams. That scared me. I think I was about 48. I was leading a group of women, encouraging them to capture their dreams, but I had none aside from developing my new life coaching practice. But with only a handful of clients at the time, I'd become discouraged.
A few years later, I found myself battling moods in my flip-flopping role of part-time empty nest mom. I'd gotten nowhere with jobs I'd applied to. I had a couple of small work-from-home businesses, but I wanted something grander. I was caught in a flurry of discontentment.
I'd sought direction for years and couldn't seem to find what God wanted me to spend my time on next in midlife that would be as meaningful as my role of raising my children. The lack of a new dream or answers about my next life phase calling had me caught in a midlife crisis that dragged on for years.
Finally, I was given an epiphany [from God]. It is this epiphany that forms the basis of my new eBook.
New eBook to Help You Through Your Midlife Crisis
My new eBook is especially helpful for women in a midlife crisis or those that just want another perspective.
This book will take a woman through a number of exercises that will help her narrow down her top five essential passions and help her find life direction. I know there are lots of passion books out there. This is different. This isn't about finding that passion that will turn into a paid career. It may, but that's not the goal.
The book is about looking at your innate makeup--the way God designed you--and taking seriously your top five areas of interests, developing them, and trusting God to use them as he sees fit.
I suggest once you identify your top five passions in midlife that you look at them as "your job." This is especially helpful for the woman who has left her paid job or never re-entered the workforce after raising children. This is helpful for the woman who has applied for new jobs and faced age discrimination and gotten nowhere.
This is for the woman who has faith in God and believes the results she arrives at are from him.
I'm not you, you're not me, so I have no idea if you'll connect with what I've written. But I offer it humbly to you. Check it out for yourself.
