This is a Podcast DEDICATED to every Midlife Woman who’s ever temporarily lost sight of her own North Star!
It’s also for any Midlife seeking to be inspired by her fellow travellers + longing to hear stories of ordinary women, determined to craft extra-ordinary lives……
It’s also a Podcast DEDICATED to telling the extraordinary stories and journies of ordinary women like YOU AND I because we all know that fact is way more interesting in fiction and in times gone by, women ALWAYS passed down their wisdom via stories and women gathering together to share.
Ultimately, If it’s a topic that matters to a Midlife Woman, we’ll be tackling it!
My sincerest aim is to ensure that EVERY EPISODE is underpinned by wisdom, ‘truth-speaking’ and affirmation that YOUR ON THE RIGHT ROAD (even if it is a bumpy one) and that NOW IS ‘YOUR’ TIME, TO DO LIFE YOUR WAY!
Hosted + posted weekly, sometimes I’ll fly solo or sometimes I’ll be joined by BRILLIANT female thought-leaders and story tellers, this Podcasts cover the KEY ‘Transition Tales +Topics’. From health, physical and mental wellness, relationships, food, movement, midlife body-image, lifestyle and personal style, there will be something for every woman in this life-phase who is simply READY TO AUTHOR HER OWN STORY.
Ready for some REAL TALK?? Let’s roll girl!
Breathe QUEEN… this is just a
chapter, not how the story ends!
Why are we afraid to say no? This is the short question with a long, deep and wide answer that we’ll be diving into.
For me, the reason you say yes when you want to say no all boils down to a FEAR OF BOUNDARY SETTING. But the problem with boundaries is that we have to be TAUGHT how to do boundaries well.
That means that you learned early on from your caregivers’ actions what boundaries in action look like but after months and months of listening to clients AND MYSELF, I’m not sure that ANYBODY has been modelled ‘good boundaries’. That’s left many of us in a pickle, unable to clearly express our wants and needs without fearing the feedback of the person being ‘boundaried’.
In this episode, we’ll be unpacking the constructs of Fawning, People-Pleasing, Boundary Setting, Authenticity and Authenticity vs Attachment theory in order to get to the bottom of this problem so we can start getting ourselves out of that pickle.
To help you delve deeper, there’s also a mini-workshop within this episode to get you started on your path to knowing yourself and voicing your boundaries. Make sure you have a pen and paper handy before we dive in for the best results!
