~An Invitation~

Even though we’ve never met, you and I are connected. After living five decades or more, we know what it is to rejoice, laugh, love, create, celebrate, and grieve, as women. We are bonded by our common heritage and privilege as women who have reached the most powerful time of our lives—our 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond. We may look very different on the outside. Some of us wear business suits, others jeans, sundresses, or saris. Whether single, coupled, separated, divorced, or widowed, no matter which continent we inhabit, we are guardians of a priceless treasure—the capacity to love and to nurture, to facilitate and collaborate—to experience and share joy.

As contemporary women over 50, we are more educated, gainfully employed and empowered than our foremothers.  We have become breadwinners, homeowners, business owners, artists, CEOs, and heads of state!

As women, we are inherently endowed with the power to give birth — to children, books, businesses, gardens, communities. Just think:  If we could harness all the wisdom and life experiences of women over 50, we could rock our world —firmly, but gently — back onto an axis of harmony, peace and loving kindness. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has said that Western women will save the world. I would respectfully add that this potential extends beyond the West to all women on the planet, if given the opportunities and knowledge to keep our spirits joyful and strong!

The truth is that the world needs our gifts — now as never before! We all have a calling and a purpose in this lifetime. Whether it’s to lovingly shape the lives of our children and grandchildren, to launch a new business, write our memoirs, or help build schools for girls in Afghanistan, as women 50+ the time has arrived for you and me to step fully into the life we were born to live.

Remember, you are a unique and powerful woman. There never has been and never will be anyone quite like you. And, it is truly your time to shine!

>> What do you really, really want in your life?

>> What is your calling at this time? 

>>What inner song is waiting to be sung?

Stay tuned for more in future posts.
