WELCOME TO MIDLIFE MEMOS
THE SWAMP GODDESS GUIDE® TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM AND AGING ANGST
BLOG #2 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
THE DOUBLE MILESTONE
Most of our lives we contend with one significant milestone
at a time. Now, two milestones - menopause and midlife - at
once. Doesn't it seem like a really bad cosmic joke?
This double milestone brings profound changes as we
poignantly review our past, daringly evaluate the present
and boldly envision a future.
Can this be all there is?
If not, then
Where do I want to go?
What do I want to do when I get there?
Is there someone (anyone) I want with me?
Am I really this old?
Do I really look like that?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The journey begins with:
- knowing what you want
- letting go of what you don't
- knowing the difference.
It continues by:
- learning how to get from here to there.
Answer the following:
Do you know where you want to go? Where? When?
Do you know what you want to do when you get there? Details please.
Do you want to go alone or with someone? Who? Why?
Spend time pondering the questions and your responses.
You will achieve more effective results if you write
down your answers.
These questions are the initial step on our journey.
