"I think midlife is when the
universe gently places
her hands over your shoulders,
pulls you close and
whispers in your ear:
"I'm not screwing you around,
it's time.
All of this pretending and
performing- these coping
mechanism that you have
developed to protect yourself
from feeling inadequate and
get hurt-has to go.
Your armour is preventing you
from growing into your gifts.
I understand that you needed
those protections when
you were small.
I understand that you believed
your armour could help you secure
all of the things you needed to feel
worthy and love and belonging,
but you are still searching and
you are more lost than ever.
Time is growing short.
There are unexplored adventures
ahead of you.
You can't live the rest of your life
worried about what
other people think.
You were born worthy of
love and belonging.
Courage and dare are
coursing through you.
You were made to live and love
and love with your whole heart. It's time to show up and be seen"
