Navigating midlife, with its unique set of big changes and challenges, isn't always easy. The anchors that used to hold you and your life in place have often shifted or even disappeared. You can feel life's passing you by, question who you are now and wonder is this it? Is this all there is?
If this is how you're feeling, you're not alone, there's nothing wrong with you and there are things you can do to change it!
I'm Rachel Lankester, the founder of the Magnificent Midlife Movement. I'm a mentor, speaker, an author in progress and totally committed to helping women move positively through menopause and beyond the messy middle, and create a magnificent midlife experience that sets you up for long-term health, happiness and fulfillment.
"When the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders, pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:
I’m not screwing around. All of this pretending and performing – these coping mechanisms that you’ve developed to protect yourself from feeling inadequate and getting hurt – has to go. Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts... You can’t live the rest of your life worried about what other people think...Courage and daring are coursing through your veins. You were made to live and love with your whole heart. It’s time to show up and be seen."
AS SEEN/HEARD ON:
Hey there, I'm Rachel...
I'm the founder of Magnificent Midlife and a proud midlife woman! I went through an early and deeply shocking menopause at 41, which sped midlife up for me! It lead me to question everything about myself and I went on a tough and sometimes traumatic journey that yielded surprising results.
Now at 53, I'm better and bolder than ever. Though I'm still sometimes plagued by self doubt! I want to help you navigate midlife to find the gold quickly, with a lot less angst than me!
You don't have to get stuck like I did! You can create the life you want, rather than settling for the one you've ended up with. I believe we get better with age like fine wine.
We have an incredible amount to give the world and the world needs us! Watch my video on how I believe midlife and beyond is our time to shine!
I feel I've found a tribe of like-minded women to hang out with even if it's a virtual one. The Members Club has prompted me to be more proactive about how I see my ageing self. It's helping me deal with the day-to-day malarkey of menopause. More importantly, it’s giving me the support I need to move forward hopefully, more gracefully and gratefully.
I want to say thanks Rachel for the brilliant group call tonight. Whether they're personal goals (diet and sleep!) or business (love fleshing out the visions and defining actions), it at last all feels ordinary, real and timely. Really looking forward to meeting other women at this ground-breaking, transformative stage of life and being a part of us all living the lives we want and need, for ourselves and the planet.
The Members Club is bloody amazing! If you're like me and wondering what's next in life or how you can get there, this is for you. If you refuse to let age or anything else hold you back but you feel you need a map to help you get there and a hand to hold for support, then I definitely recommend you join. It's the place to be! I was blown away by the online get-togethers! It's great fun and so helpful.
