Edgy? You bet! Energizing? Better than RedBull. Empowering? I feel the surge! Redefining? Oh my, yes! This isn’t what I learned in the Kappa Kappa Gamma house at the University of Michigan in 1969, but, baby, it feels wonder-full now! Feminine? Ummm, maybe not so much to some women – I’ve had women tell me that “kickass” is a turn off and ‘way too strong. I would push back. I believe that it’s feminine as flowers. It embodies the deep feminine strength that we re-ignited in our last session of Tell Body Blues to Take A Hike, on Thursday, Sept. 27. Look at us. We’re talking strong, vital, confident women!
How did we get the chutzpah for this level of self confidence and excitement about who we are as women at midlife and beyond? It takes several ingredients:
First, believing in yourself - and a desire to be the best you can be. What does that mean?
- To truly believe that you’re not getting older, you’re getting started™.
- To take charge of your own life. Know who your authentic self really is, and what you need. You’ve been through a tsunami of change. Give yourself credit!
- To want to step out in the world boldly and affirm your women-ness. To dance in life.
- To want to let go of age-gain body blues: to let go of old stories, to yearn to gain the audacity of youth all over again, and to dedicate yourself to staying vital and exquisite.
Second, you need a practical and delicious recipe for success that cooks up beautifully and takes you to feeling wonder-full, as expeditiously as possible:
- That’s the Six steps in my Get A Second Wind Reclaim Your Body and feel Wonder-full guide.
- These magnificent women made the journey of six steps from Woe to Wonder-full. We laughed, cried and shared our way through it all. At the end, no one wanted to leave.
- To be successful, we need to support each other!
Kickass? Yes! AND, bold, lovely, sophisticated, sexy and savvy. Clap! Clap! Clap! For these wonder-full women!
Lisa Kindred said it best:
“There’s a child is all of us that don’t want to die. Thank god mine has managed to survive.
When I get down and feel like givin’ up, there’s a little voice that says, “Uh, uh, uh!”
We’re gonna keep on rockin’ til they roll us away…
We’re gonna keep on rockin’ til they roll us away!”
