Here’s your simple guide to restarting your midlife mojo in 5 practical steps.
What do I mean by restarting your mojo at midlife? Mojo is that indefinable quality that attracts people to you. Think of it as the magic spell you cast!
Midlife doesn’t have to mean feeling stuck in the middle of your life or fear of moving forward. It doesn’t have to be a midlife crisis. It can be a chance to restart all those dreams you may have put on hold.
Getting your mojo back, that magic you felt when you were younger and invincible, is the key to a happy midlife. Who doesn’t want to dance into their next decades oozing confidence and charisma? I know I do.
How do we flip the fear of aging and midlife angst to instead become more sure of ourselves. How do we gain resilience as we get older?
1. Reinventing our inner life is the key to a midlife restart.
Let’s remember, as women we give life and we run the world. We pretend we don’t have any power, but we do. History tells us there were goddesses before gods. If you’re like me, you’ve rolled your eyes at the notion you could be a goddess. But believe it.
Being a goddess is embracing an internal feeling of power. Consider it’s an entitlement to feel like Wonder Woman. Being over fifty doesn’t dilute your magnificence; if anything it celebrates it.
2. Reinventing your love life means letting go of the past.
Midlife sex should still rock our boats. Don’t let it go by the wayside if it’s important to you. If it doesn’t thrill you, keep a smile on your face and let everyone wonder.
Cuddling, connection and love can fill our hearts and souls. Be open to all types of love; from your partner, children, family and friends old and new. Now more than ever, remind yourself you are worthy of love.
3. Reinventing your look means matching the outside with the inside.
Now’s the time to take a fresh look at what really works and what flatters us now. Going up or down a size. Trying new stores. Getting a new hairdresser and a new hairstyle. Yes, change!
To reinvent your look; focus on color and fit. Choose shades to flatter your current skin and hair. Fit is more important than ever. Show off the good stuff and know how to disguise everything else.
4. Reinventing our home at mid life is different for each of us.
It can mean moving, downsizing, upsizing, living abroad or changing the home we’re in. Our home contains many memories. Now’s the time to really take stock of how your current home feels to you. If it doesn’t feel good when you walk through the door, be open to change.
I want you to feel like you can’t wait to get home because your home is a reflection of you, it nurtures and supports you, shelters and comforts you.
5. Reinventing and restarting your mid life.
You’re an independent, intelligent and aware woman who’s over fifty. You’re looking for ways to make the next decades matter and you’re willing to dig deep for answers.
These days and years ahead count. Now’s the time to look inward and ask ourselves if we’re willing to make changes and maybe live a little outside our comfort zone.
Living outside our comfort zone is where everything happens. It’s where you decide to move across country to be closer to loved ones, or move across the world. It’s where you decide to start a new business or leave your partner. It’s where you decide you deserve to be a happy goddess.
Restarting your life is always possible if you want it enough. Make these years count, don’t give up or give in!
