THE SWAMP GODDESS® GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM AND AGING ANGST
BLOG # 19 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
THE SWAMP GODDESS END OF SEMESTER REVIEW
We finished our first semester of The Midlife Memos online course.
Well... almost finished.
We still have the end-of-semester Swamp Goddess Review.
The culmination of our semester is The Swamp Goddess Report Card.
(I'm such a professor).
It's take-home, open-book and you may take as long as you like.
You grade yourself. Yippee!
Milestones act as catalysts for change.
The double milestone® - menopause and midlife - is the double whammy.
Regrets are a hallmark of the double milestone.
Swamp Goddesses aim to live the remainder of our lives with a 'No Regrets' policy.
This semester was designed to:
- gain awareness
- guide your Swamp Goddess choices,
- identify who and what you want
- let go of who and what you don't
- to know the difference
Rate your progress on meeting your goals.
1. Have you made lifestyle decisions that support your choices?
2. Have you identified what and who you want and don't want?
3. Are you spending the majority of your time with the individuals/activities that enhance and enrich your life?
Great! That's a definite 'A'.
4. Are you spending the majority of your time with individuals/activities that do not enhance and enrich your life?
If so, these follow up questions may be useful:
- Are you inspired to change?
- Are you a work in progress?
- Are you making the effort?
- Do you need more time?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
This is a self awareness exercise.
The information revealed may surprise you.
After identifying what you want, open to receive it.
Aim high, stay positive and go for it!
